At our community garden in Kirkcaldy we grow a variety of fruit, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries then apples from the orchard in autumn. There’s always some rhubarb to pick too. Most fruit is easy to grow at home and you can find raspberries and brambles growing wild along paths and hedgerows.
Making jam is a great way to preserve the summer harvest to last well into the winter. At the workshop we will share our knowledge and experience to help you make jam from garden and hedgerow fruit.
We’ll forage around the garden to pick fruit and wild berries and then turn it into jam. We’ll look at the principles behind jam making, how you can make the most of different kinds of fruit and we’ll send you home with recipes, ideas and a jar of tasty jam.
Your tutor for the morning will be Jackie one of our experienced gardeners who has a passion for growing, preserving and cooking.
No experience necessary, the workshop is suitable for beginners. Please wear suitable outdoor clothing and be prepared to be outside in all weathers!
The workshop will take place outdoors at Ravenscraig Walled Garden.
