    Penn State Extension: Home Food Preservation: Tomatoes and Salsa – $15


    In recent years, there has been increasing interest in home food preservation. Canning is one method of food preservation that allows you to enjoy garden tomatoes all year long. While this method of home food preservation has existed for centuries, we have learned a lot about the science behind this practice in recent years. Home Food Preservation: Tomatoes & Salsa will explain the scientific reasoning behind today‚Äôs recommended methods for making and processing tomatoes and salsa while dispelling food preservation myths and unsafe practices of the past.
     

    This workshop will review the following:

    • The basics of water bath and atmospheric steam canning for processing tomatoes and tomato products.
    • The latest canning recommendations related to acidifying tomato products.
    • Use of research tested recipes in canning salsa and other tomato products for safety.

  • Penn State Extension: Managing Invasive Plants

    Penn State Extension: Managing Invasive Plants – $75


    Invasive weeds and pests are a major threat to our natural and cultivated landscapes, spreading quickly and displacing or killing native plants. Invasive species (plants, insects, and animals) are costing the United States more than $138 billion each year, due to their economic impact on agriculture, forestry, fisheries, waterways, wildlife, and ornamental landscapes. Ecologists now rank invasion by exotic plants, animals and pathogens second only to habitat loss as a major threat to local biodiversity.
     

    A portion of the day will be spent in the field looking at invasive plants, the results of management, and a calibration demonstration.
