Canning / Freezing Info:
We have received many questions recently regarding canning and food preservation. UNL actually has a Pinterest page dedicated to canning. Fruits, onions, tomatoes, corn, etc. This page can teach you how to can all sorts of things! The good folk in Lincoln have a separate page with a simplier format which has wonderful canning information. Use both pages in tandem with each other! If you are more interested in freezing foods, simply follow this link.
CSI & Community Garden
Have a green thumb? Interested in crops? If you answered yes to any of those questions, join the CSI and/or Community Garden teams this year. CSI and Community Garden will work together on a couple of workshops. If you have a CSI notebook from last year, please bring it to the workshops. There is no charge for either program this year. Here's what you can learn about in CSI:-Learn about the importance of agriculture and how crops are used.
-Conduct cool, hands-on science experiments.
-Listen to speakers and learn about careers.
-Help conduct field plot research.
-Become a CSI investigator and detect plant problems.
