Just announced: 18th Century Food Preservation Techniques Workshop with Jim Buckenmyer on August 22, 2015

James White’s Fort will be offering another fun and informative hands on workshop on Saturday, August 22, from 10am-2pm. We will be exploring ways used to make your harvest last throughout the year. Participants will experience all aspects of preparing and preserving food in the same way the early settlers did. We will cover pickling, salting, drying, smoking and more.

Jim is a longtime participant in the reenacting community with immense knowledge in late-18th and early-19th century culture.

The cost is $20 per person, with money raised going toward educational programming at James White’s Fort. Space is limited to 20 people, so reserve yours now! For more information, call 865-525-6514 or send us an email. The last day for registration will be Thursday, August 20th.
