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.
