It is wonderful to be able to grow your own fruit and veg. But, when a harvest yields more than can be eaten or you want to extend that freshly picked taste throughout the winter, turning this produce into jams, chutneys and jellies is the perfect solution.

Join Julie Laing, a prolific gardener, allotment owner and former Surrey Wildlife Trust Education Tutor, in demonstrating creative ways to turn your produce into preserves.

The day will be held at our Pucks Oak Barn location. Surrounded by an orchard, this course will be both inspiring and practical. Julie will spend time discussing methods, ideas and solutions. She will then get everyone involved in producing their own jar of goodness to be taken home and enjoyed.

All materials and produce will be supplied.

Tutor profile - Julie Laing

Julie Laing worked in the Surrey Wildlife Trust education team as an Education Officer for 14 years. Having very recently retired, she and her husband are looking forward to adding new and interesting destinations to their already full travel logs. However, Julie’s primary passion lies much closer to home. Her overflowing allotment provides a continued source of produce from which to create amazing jams and chutneys. Having grown up with the understanding that everything must be used and nothing wasted- she has developed unique techniques in making delicious preserves from the ordinary and the unusual.

What's included in the price?

We will provide all of the produce and jars needed on the day.
