Workshop: Food Preservation 101


August 10, 2019 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Discover the ins and outs of food preservation, then try it for yourself.

Program Details

During WWI, the United States government promoted home gardening to help ease food rationing during the war effort. As "victory gardens" became popular, food preservation became essential to make the most of their harvests. In conjunction with the exhibit WWI America, join experts Sonia Coyle and Elsie Lacy who are County Extension Agents-Family and Community Health from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service for a workshop on the essentials of food preservation. Get the basics on different techniques, then take what you've learned and try it at home. 


WWI America was produced by the Minnesota Historical Society in partnership with the National Constitution Center, the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, the Oakland Museum of California, and the Bullock Texas State History Museum.

WWI America has been made possible in part by major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.

The Bullock Texas State History Museum is a division of the Texas State Preservation Board. Additional support for educational programming provided by the Texas State History Museum Foundation.
