Waste Reduction Week in the Time of Covid

Waste Reduction Week 2020 goes virtual!

See below for the full recording of  the fermentation workshop with Jessica Winter and Alice Savage from our Online Workshop on Reducing Food Waste in the Home. Learn how to make sauerkraut, how to ferment beets, and some general tips to start your canning journey.


Jessica Winter

Jess Winter is a self-taught nourishment enthusiast with the firm belief that food is medicine that can heal your body! To Jess, the kitchen is a place that feeds her creativity, allows her to connect to Mother Earth through food, create magic, and of course nourish herself and loved ones.

Over the past five years Jess has developed her skills and knowledge in zero-waste cooking and living, kitchen herbalism, fermentation, bulk food prepping, recipe development, as well as sourcing high-quality ingredients through supporting local sustainable farmers.

If Jess had to pick her most favourite thing about food it would be, how it brings people together!

Alice Savage

Brought up cooking brownies and flapjacks after Sunday afternoon walks in the countryside, she followed her passion for food and trained at the Tante Marie, Cordon Bleu Cookery School, near London, England.

Alice now lives in Paradise Valley near Squamish, where she is raising her 2 girls. She was the chef in two exclusive chalets in Whistler’s for a number of years, then furthered her education in Holistic Nutrition at the Canadian School of Nutrition and graduated as an R.H.N.
