Douglas College to host free workshops in December

Having difficulty checking off all the names on your holiday gift list?

Douglas College’s Coquitlam campus will host two fun activities that may solve the problem.

The College’s Institute of Urban Ecology will host two free workshops in December – Making Sauerkraut and Making Seed Paper – with each participant taking home the fruits of their labour.

On Dec. 3, take care of your foodie friend with the Making Sauerkraut workshop. Starting at 6pm, in room B2050, learn how to make your own sauerkraut from a local fermentation expert. Participants are asked to bring a one-litre Mason (or similar) jar and lid, so they can bring their sauerkraut home.

Sign your gardening buddy up for the Making Seed Paper workshop on Dec. 10. They’ll learn how to make homemade paper embedded with seeds suitable for planting indoors or out. Bring a bag to carry home the slightly-damp seed paper. The workshop will be held in room B2050 at 6pm.

To register for either workshop, email
