About

The Weston A Price Foundation Upper Delaware Chapter serves counties on either side of the upper Delaware River in Pennsylvania and New York: Wayne and Pike counties in PA, Sullivan and Delaware counties in NY. It was founded in the summer of 2009. We hold seasonal workshops in traditional food preparation and education. Over the past couple years, we have had butter-making, sauerkraut, and ginger beer workshops, to name a few. We often co-sponsor with Transition Honesdale, NOFA-NY, and Slow Food Upper Delaware River Valley.

We encourage you to join the Weston A. Price Foundation and support our mission to educate and provide access to nutrient dense foods. In return, you will receive the Foundation’s excellent quarterly journal “Wise Traditions”.

Workshop Refunds and Cancellation
For workshops, if insufficient numbers sign up by 1 week before the event date, Weston A Price Foundation, Upper Delaware Chapter may, at its discretion, cancel the workshop and fully refund any registration fees paid within 14 days. A participant may withdraw up to 8 days before the event and receive a refund of 90% of registration fees paid.
