Food Skills Training Opportunities
- The Food Skills Network’s mission is to assist individuals and organizations within Chatham-Kent to develop food skills by providing training, tools, resources and networking.
- Examples of training opportunities we hope to bring to CK include gardening workshops, cooking demos, composting workshops, and canning & preserving workshops.
