Jam Session

On Thursday, July 15th, ten garden volunteers had the opportunity to witness the jam making genius of  JAM according to Daniel at our “jam session” workshop held at the Haven at First and Main.  Daniel was both educational and entertaining as he demonstrated the jam making process from start to finish. Each participant took home a delicious jar of the finished product – peach, blackberry, & lemon jam – with fresh peaches from Saunders Bros. Orchard and fresh blackberries from Critzer Family Farm – two Nelson County favorites!

Thanks to Daniel for sharing his passion for jam with us and to the Haven for allowing us to use their beautiful kitchen space! You can check out all of Daniel’s other delicious jam flavors at the Charlottesville Farmers Market each Saturday morning from 7am – noon.

The garden hopes to organize/host similar workshops throughout the academic year as well.  Let us know if you have an idea for a potential workshop and we’ll see what we can do!
