Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

You don't have to be one of the recent grads from the Master Food Preserver program to put up some fabulous pickles. Nor do you have to craft your own ice cream churning tricycle. This summer, Mother Moo will be teaching home preservation and canning classes for the masses, the first of which is dedicated to two of our favorite comestibles: pickles and ice cream.

The first course will take place on June 16 from 9 a.m.-noon, and there will be a few other options to join later in the summer. Class cost is $110 per couple or $65 per person. Reservations can be made to
