We are so fortunate to live in a community with bountiful fruits and vegetables. Canning is one
way to extend that bounty into winter, and you don't have to be an expert.
My mom and I tried our hand at canning with the help of YouTube videos. Staff member Tracy
Ellison canned for the first time this summer by putting up vegetables in refrigerator brine. Editor Aleta George is learning to can strawberry jam from her mother-in-law.
Maybe you like to can too? We'd love to hear your canning stories!
Even if you don't have the time for canning, you "can" still enjoy the bounty of our county by
frequenting farmers markets and farm stands.
Thanks to you, Solano Land Trust is able to work closely with ranchers and farmers to protect land in working agriculture, and to partner with grazers to help us manage our protected lands.
We hope you will join us at our October 9 Sunday Supper and meet some of our partners in land conservation, including Todd and Loretta Swickard of Five Dot Ranch who are donating top sirloin to the dinner...
