The wheel of CFPA has four spokes: 
Access, Education, Support, and Community. 

In our view Education can take many forms, from brief instructions on using a canner to a group canning party.   In cooperation with other like-intended organizations, CFPA brings quality programs and opportunities around the sustainable food home preservation to the greater Pierce County community.

Our schedule is posted here, and updated quarterly. 

Here's what's coming up!

Auburn International Farmers Market: 
Rhubarb, Strawberries, and Mint
Sunday June 9, at Noon 
The sweetness of strawberries, the tartness of rhubarb, and the spiciness of mint can complement each other in many delicious ways.  And fortunately they are all available around the same time in our Puget Sound region.  In this workshop Hal Meng from the Center for Food Preservation Arts will share information and recipes and demonstrate some delicious combinations.
