Meet our Canning Expert: Jen Hudson

Canning-FoodJen Hudson, owner of A Taste of Kent, has been canning since her teens, practicing a time old tradition passed on to her from her mother and grandmothers. Today she preserves for her own family and the community she lives in.   Jen is a marketer at the Upriver Country Market in Bass River, NB supplying stock for many a kitchen pantry in her region, and perhaps beyond.

Her 20 year background in broadcasting as a show host (XL 96) and a reporter/producer for CBC Moncton and News 91.9, as well as intructor at NBCC, and workshop teacher for Nourish Moi Nutrition (St. Ignace, NB), the health centre in Elsipogtog, NB and the Community Food Mentorship program in Richibucto, NB stands her in good stead to teach the art of canning. 

We welcome her to Green Eye Cooperative for a few workshops this upcoming fall season of 2015.  See our Workshop & Event  page for more details and registration to the workshops where we can learn a few of Jen’s secrets, tips and learned techniques to simplify the canning process.

You can also listen to an interview of her on CBC Radio’s Shift program.

Moncton Park Gardens

Raised bed
In partnership with the City of Moncton, and funded by Healthy and Inclusive Communities, Green Eye Coop is installing raised bed planters in several play parks in the city.

• René Arthur Fréchet @ 45 Centre St.

Our Food Survey

logo-without-borders-ENGOne of the foundations of Green Eye Coop is the development of sustainable, local food options. We are passionate about food security, about developing our local food assets, and about determining the carbon footprint cast by importing the foods we eat on a regular basis.

As part of one of our (many) initiatives being launched this year, we are so excited to be partnering with the Our Food project. The first step to finding a sustainable solution is finding out where people in New Brunswick buy, eat, and grow their food today. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey – and help us by sharing it as widely as possible.
