(Woodland, CA) – September is Farm to Fork month. To celebrate, the Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden and the CalFresh Healthy Living Program are hosting a free class at the end of September that will focus on food preservation.
This class will be taught by UCCE Master Food Preservers. The class will be held on Wednesday, September 28, from 5:15 pm to 7:30 pm. The class topics will include fruit and vegetable canning and drying. No gardening experience is necessary to participate, and all are welcome to attend.
The Sacramento region is known as the Farm to Fork capital of the country. This class offers Yolo County residents an opportunity to enhance their ability to consume fresh, local produce by gaining skills and knowledge that make home gardening and food preserving fun and easy.
Pre-registration is required for the class. To register, contact David Linebarger at (530) 666-8429 or [email protected].
The garden is located at 137 N. Cottonwood Street in Woodland, on the west side of the Yolo County Health and Human Services Agency Bauer Building. Participants are encouraged to dress for warm weather and bring water. In the event of extreme heat or poor air quality, the classes will be moved inside.
Classes are offered for at no cost throughout the year at the Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Garden. To learn more about the garden activities and classes, visit: www.yolocounty.org/garden.
