Even though times are tough, You Can sustain your family. The Piscataquis Valley Adult Education Cooperative and the University of Maine Cooperative Extension have put together a series of workshops that will give you the skills to get started in self-sufficiency.

Preserve your garden’s fresh vegetables for the winter without canning or freezing! At this hands-on workshop you’ll learn the fun and easy technique of lacto-fermentation to keep vegetables in their raw state for months of delicious eating.  Cultures around the world take advantage of fermented vegetables as a digestive aid and for their enhanced nutrition and anti-cancer properties.

Since 2007 Mary Margaret Ripley has made over 25 diverse kinds of fermented vegetables at Ripley Organic Farm in Dover-Foxcroft.
