4-H Summer Kids Can Can Program (Wells)
August 31 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
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 at Laudholm Farm 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.
Strawberry Jam — Friday, July 13, 10 a.m.–noon
Pickling — Friday, Aug. 3, 10 a.m.–noon
Salsa — Friday, Aug. 31, 1–3 p.m.
The cost for each session is $5 per person.
