Sustaining Pacific teams up with UC Master Gardener and Master Food Preservers
University of the Pacific’s Sustaining Pacific hosts a monthly series to teach people how to grow and preserve food.
In January, University of the Pacific’s Sustaining Pacific began hosting a monthly series to learn about growing and preserving food. UC Master Gardeners and Master Food Preservers teach the workshops using the Ted and Chris Robb Garden and Pacific Kitchen Co-op.
The series was initiated by Pacific alumna Linda Driver, a master gardener and master food preserver. Open to all Pacificans and the general public, the workshops teach participants basic life skills related to food: how to grow it, preserve it and utilize it.
Workshops are offered most second Saturdays from 10 a.m. to about 11:30 a.m. and meet at Robb Garden. The remaining topics for 2020 are:
April 11: Growing herbs in containers
June 13: Preserving seasonal fruit
July 11: Making and preserving salsa
August 8: Planning your cool season vegetable garden
September 12: Composting and vermicomposting
November 14: Growing succulents and other indoor plants
Master Gardeners and Master Food Preservers are programs of University of California.
