Mather Auditorium

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. We'll harvest the fruits needed, and then move inside to the kitchen and prepare a batch of strawberry jam. Each participant will take home a jar.

Current 4-H enrollment is not necessary for participation.
