Covid-19 has changed the way we communicate, the way we meet with friends and family and the way we teach and learn. Across our county and the state, teachers have learned to be creative, even more than before, and conduct all their classes using virtual media. I am still amazed at how my daughter-in-law can keep her kindergarten children's attention. I'm sure its difficult enough face to face, but now virtually? Wow!
The Master Food Preserver volunteers of San Joaquin County have not given up on teaching food preservation strategies, techniques and skills. All of our virtual workshops are held on the third Saturday of the month from9:50 am to Noon. All workshops come with recipes and informational handouts. Additionally all workshops are recorded and will be posted to our Facebook page, our website: https://ucanr.edu/sites/NSJMFP/, and then to our blog. PLUS all the workshops are free!
