Whittier, CA 90606

In this food preservation workshop, learn about the art of drying -- the oldest form of food preservation -- which safely retains the healthful live and raw qualities of summer vegetables for long-term storage.

You'll prepare produce from Whittier's own Strub Avenue Farm to make an assortment of crunchy snacks, chewy desserts, and dried fruits and vegetables, and learn age-old techniques for making and storing sun-dried tomatoes to preserve the taste of summer all winter long.

A light vegetarian lunch is included to encourage socializing with fellow food-lovers. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of cooking experience and is beginner-friendly.

This workshop will include an overview of how to use several models of dehydrators (plus tips for acquiring one on a budget), instruction on preparing a variety of delectable nibbles, a recipe pack, and of course lots of sampling throughout the course of our time together.


Through her work with pranaful, Meredith Klein provides foods and food education that assist in maximizing and sustaining prana - our essential life force; prepares food with love as the first and most important ingredient; and, inspires others to engage with food in a healthy and loving way.

Meredith works with yoga teachers, meditation groups and other consciously-minded individuals to design menus using local organic ingredients for retreats and events that compliment the larger mission at hand. Pranaful specializes in tantalizing vegetarian/vegan menus with an emphasis on raw and living foods.

Pranaful workshops provide hands-on cooking opportunities designed to build confidence and boost culinary creativity, and to provide education on how to cultivate healthy relationships and rituals with food, with the ultimate goal of developing a deeper appreciation of food, as well as more mindful habits in all aspects of our lives.


The Kale Chips Dehydrating Workshop is a part of the Build-Your-Skills workshop series curated by the Whittier Time Bank in support of community self-reliance.
