Through our Wildways Series we work with local community members to provide fun educational experiences for friends, family and supporters all while raising funds for the conservation of beautiful lands in Shasta County. Preserve the Local Harvest was one of those events. Master Food Preserver, Benita Moore of Aunt Bees Kitchen, reserved the kitchen at The Redding School of the Arts for a 3 hour class on canning local seasonal fruits and all guests were able to take away some sweet treats for later in the year!
With fruit donated from local farmers this event demonstrated the bounty which is provided to the residents of Shasta County year round. The small family farms are what makes this place we call home special and through continued conservation efforts we hope to "preserve" these gems for generations to come!
