KENAI PENINSULA CES INTRODUCES AMORETTE PAYMENT

Nutrition Educator, Amorett Payment recently began serving the Kenai Peninsula. Her program emphasizes healthy food choices and the importance of a balanced lifestyle. 


"Try it Once!"

You are invited to try fun ways to exercise on the Peninsula!

The Central Peninsula Change Club encourages you to try new ways of exercising by providing opportunities to "Try it Once!" This new program introduces and encourages investigating new physical activities before committing to them long term. 

Try it Once in January taught participants how to make pool swimming into a workout routine. The March Try it Once activity was a lesson and workout using a spinning bike. In May, we enjoyed the great outdoors by learning disk golf techniques. 

For more information on this new program call Linda Tannehill at 262-5824.

Neighbor to Neighbor Class Series

In an effort to encourage Alaskans to eat locally grown, produced, or gathered food and minimize energy consumption, the Neighbor to Neighbor series engages Extension volunteers to extend the reach of Cooperative Extension Service Sustainable Living programming.

Master Gardeners, 4-H Youth Development Leaders, Family & Community Education members and other community volunteers teach classes on raising animals for food and fiber; growing, harvesting and preserving fruit and vegetables; and techniques for living lightly on the land. 

Neighbor to Neighbor classes offer local citizens the opportunity to share their knowledge and skills with their communities.

Interested in sharing your sustainable living knowledge with your neighbors?
Contact the Cooperative Extension Service, 907.262.5824.
