Edible Garden Year: Harvest and Preservation (150-08-23-18)
Thursday, August 23, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Laura Vogel, Arboretum Adult Education Programs Manager, and Christy Marsden, Extension Master Gardener Education Manager
Successfully grown vegetable plants can often mean you now have bushels of beautiful produce on your hands- what to do with them? Christy and Laura will talk you through the basics of proper harvesting: when to pick, what to refrigerate, how to cure, and more. Then we’ll be joined by University of Minnesota Extension experts to learn more about safe preservation techniques, from canning to drying. There will be samples, of course, and students are encouraged to bring surplus produce to share with one another at the end of class!
