“Granny’s Traditional Preserves” were such a hit at the Extravaganza that the preservers in our group have become ambitious and want to do even better in 2015! We received lots of good suggestions from our customers and have decided that we should work throughout the year as the seasons change to avoid a last minute rush and can freeze or juice produce for use when we’re ready.

To achieve our goal we need help from Grannies, specifically:

  • Donations of Mason jars of all sizes but especially 125, 250 and 500 ml (jars can be brought to our meetings or contact Lorna Reid (250-951-9680) for pickup.
  • Donations of produce as it becomes available in your gardens – fruit of all kinds including rhubarb, beets, onions, garlic and herbs such as dill and mint.
  • Volunteers who will make pickles, relish, jams, chutneys, jellies etc. either in their own home or with a working group.
  • Volunteers who would enjoy decorating the completed jars for the sale.



If you would like to join the group please contact Lorna Reid at lornareid@shaw.ca

Would you like to be a g2g photographer?

Happy New Year, everyone. As 2015 starts, are you interested in a new role within Oceanside Grandmothers to Grandmothers?  Would you like to help me with photography?  This will involve covering g2g events for the web and for archives (for brochures, slideshows etc). It will also involve taking photos of new members for the Directory.

You need basic skills of digital photography: how to take clear pictures, how to ensure they are at least 1MB in size, how to send them to me without reducing image size.  Beyond that, we can talk together about other features of photos that make them most useful for the website or the Directory.  If you have a mac computer, you might also consider taking on photo enhancement, sizing, and so forth — fun stuff — but that’s not essential.

I’d really welcome one of our newer members volunteering for this role — someone not already involved in a lot of g2g projects.  Please reply directly to me, at either my personal email address in the Directory or at oceansideg2g@shaw.ca  I’d like to have a new photographer in place before our next meeting (Tuesday, January 20), which I am going to miss.
