The Home-schooled 4-H Explorers learned to preserve vegetables they have grown in their plot at the community garden. Shannon Coleman, 4-H Agent, instructed the group on making pickles, salsa and preserving green beans. It was a long day of hard work! The rewards will be well worth it when it comes times to enjoy the tasty foods. Club members who canned will chose a sample of their work to enter in the Mountain State Fair this summer.
