Food Preservation Classes with Julie Cascio

September 17, 2020 @ 1:00 pm 3:30 pm

Going through summer into fall brings the opportunity to grow and harvest produce, to fish and to hunt. While these activities provide food to enjoy at the moment, they also create an abundance to eat later in the year. Julie Cascio, Mat-Su/Copper River Valley District UAF Cooperative Extension agent, will share research-based information on ways to preserve food.
