The Farm Education Foundation of Moapa Valley has teamed up with the University Cooperative Extension Office in Logandale to offer a series of preservation and gardening classes. The first class offered was called "Under Pressure", and consisted of a lecture and hands-on practice to learn how to can chili con carne using tested and approved pressure canning techniques. The newest class offered is a dehydrating class and will teach participants how to dehydrate items for future use.

The class will be taught by Certified Master Preservationist Debby Woodland, who currently works out of the Pahrump, Nevada Extension office. The class will run from 12pm to 3pm on May 23rd. The cost is $20 and pre-registration is required. The course fee covers the cost of supplies, equipment, and materials utilized in the class for instructional purposes. Please register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/its-drying-time-dehydrating-class-tickets-16755993628.

The classes go hand in hand with the quarterly food swap held my the Farm Education Foundation. The next Food Swap will be held on Saturday, May 9th at 1pm at the Cooperative Extension Office in Logandale. You may register at http://may-2015-mvfood-swap.eventbrite.com.

What is a food swap?

A food swap is part silent auction/part village marketplace/part fun-loving open house where your homemade, homegrown, and foraged creations become your own personal currency for use in swapping with other participants. Diversify your pantry while meeting your friends and neighbors!
