Sustainability at Home: Preserving your Spring Harvest

April 27, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The UCOP Sustainability Affinity Group, in partnership with the UCOP Department of Energy and Sustainability, invites the UC community to participate in “Sustainability at Home”, a three-part virtual speaker series event in celebration of Earth Month (April).

Our third and final speaker series presentation will take place on Tuesday, April 27, from 12-1 pm. UCOP Director of Sustainability Matthew St. Clair will provide opening remarks on Earth Month followed by a presentation by UC Master Food Preserver and Master Gardener of Sonoma County, Tobi Brown. UC Master Food Preservers are volunteers trained and certified by the University of California to provide research-based practices to safely preserve food in the home, reduce food waste, increase food security, and engage Californians to explore healthy food. During this one-hour presentation, Tobi will explain how we can preserve our spring garden harvest through canning, pickling and dehydration and answer any questions you may have. So, bring your appetite to this lunchtime presentation!
