Pickle Party — It's kind of a big dill

Free Event: First in best dressed | Capacity 250 
Talent: Hannah Maloney & Michelle Crawford | Venue: Mainstage

Pucker up with Hannah Maloney from Goodlife Permaculture and Michelle Crawford for Tasmania’s biggest Pickle Party.  A free event that touches on waste reduction, preserving the seasons and home grown deliciousness through a long table pickling party.  Bring your excess produce, a clean jar and we’ll provide the brine and spices for this mega pickle and preserving day.   Pickle Party is for everyone, from tomato-squishing toddlers to gherkin-loving grannies.  Set on the Princess Wharf forecourt, we’ll have tables filled with the season´s excess bounty; carrots, radishes, zucchinis, fennel seeds, peppercorns and edible flowers like nasturtiums, calendula, and borage. We’ll show you how to pack your jars and top them up with our pickling brine. A special Pickle Party label with be available for participants to label their handiwork.
