The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Georgian Bay Métis Council youth group recently held a “Jam Night” without any musical instruments. Instead of a traditional “Jam Night”, council member Janice Ferris and youth members made homemade strawberry jam from scratch.

The youth were included throughout the entire process from "mushing" the berries to mixing and of course sampling. All participants were able to bring the strawberry jam home with them and some was donated to elders.
