4-H Summer Kids Can Can Program, Falmouth

Starting in July Cumberland County Extension will be conducting new short-term 4-H programs for any interested youth. Current 4-H enrollment is not necessary for participation. The Kids Can Can program will meet once a week on Wednesdays, July 20 – August 17, 9:00- 11:00AM, for five weeks at the UMaine Extension Office and UMaine Garden at Tidewater Farm in Falmouth. Registration ends July 15th or when the course is full.

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 participants how to grow and preserve the garden’s harvest. Each session will begin in the Tidewater Gardens as we harvest the fruits and vegetables needed to make jam, pickles, salsa, and more. Then we’ll move to the kitchen and prepare a batch of delicious preserved foods. Each participant will take home a jar of what we make.

For more information about all of our Summer 4-H offerings, please visit the Cumberland County 4-H Summer SPIN Programs website.
