Kids Can Can Youth Preserving Series

August 3, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

| $5
Two Children stirring a mixing bowl

Strawberry jam, pickles, and salsa—all of these foods can be made from scratch with fruits and vegetables grown in your own garden. Join UMaine Extension staff and volunteers in this hands-on, interactive program that will teach kids ages 9+ how to grow and preserve the garden’s harvest. Each session will begin in the University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s Tidewater Gardens as we harvest the fruits and vegetables needed to make jam, pickles, salsa, and more. Then we’ll move to the UMaine Regional Learning Center Demo Kitchen and prepare a batch of delicious preserved foods. Each participant will take home a jar of what we make.

Event will begin at Tidewater Gardens off of Farm Gate Rd. and end at UMaine Regional Learning Center.
