Food Preservation Volunteers Needed for Community Garden


Published: Aug. 31, 2022

Do you love to dabble in dilly beans, put up pickled peppers, or pack away pesto for future use? The Asbury Community Garden Committee is hoping to recruit a small team of people who are experienced in food preservation. Our garden is bursting with vegetable bounty, and we’d like to keep some of it for the Dining and Caring Center’s off-season use. We're now providing produce weekly to the dining center and to two off-campus feeding programs, but will still have enough to also put some aside. If you’d like to be involved in this short-term project, please contact us:, or In coming years we may also look at making jams or canning applesauce.
