Ever wonder how to preserve all those great fruits and vegetables you grow or purchase?  Vegetables and fruits begin to deteriorate soon after harvesting or buying.  Learn how to preserve them safely so you can enjoy them all year round. This will be a hands on class and you will be able to take home what we make and enjoy with your family.

Sheri is a retired nurse who moved to Maine 13 years ago. She is a self-taught cooking and baking instructor, teaching in the New Jersey school system and privately.  She has been gardening and preserving for many years.  She has received both her Master Gardener Certification and Master Preserver Certification through the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and is excited to share her skills with our community!
