Introduction to Dehydrating Food

Green Street Meetinghouse | Philadelphia, PA

Part of GREAT's series on building Emergency Preparedness and Community Self-Reliance in Germantown
About this Event

Did you know you can fit 25 pounds of dehydrated tomatoes in one quart-size jar? Join us for short YouTube videos, informational materials, and open discussion, to get us ready for a collective dehydrating get-together. (the actual dehydrating will be at a later date soon after)

Some food will be provided. There is a play space for kids outdoors, however, we will be in the lower level inside room.

Enter at the left side of the building, toward the rear, lower level. There is parking near there too. This space is wheelchair accessible.


COMMUNITY ORGANIZING is where people who live in proximity to each other come together to act in their shared self-interest.

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS is planning ahead for situations including but not limited to weather-related disasters or economic crises. It is preparing supplies and action plans, and building a network for “weathering the storm,” to save lives and keep people in Germantown.

COMMUNITY SELF-RELIANCE is crafting locally-relevant solutions, building new systems and ways of doing things, and, as communities, providing for ourselves. Community self-reliance means that if the systems we usually rely upon fall apart, your community has what it needs.

GREAT’s approach here is a combination of these terms. We believe this culture shift will build greater community resiliency, so that whatever comes our way, we have the experience and the support network to handle it.
