Neighbor to Neighbor Class Series
In an effort to help Alaskans eat more 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.
With the increased interest in, 1) knowledge of food sources, 2) sustainable consumption of natural resources, and 3) building community capacity, the weekly Neighbor to Neighbor classes offer local citizens the opportunity to share their knowledge and skills on subjects of interest to the general public.
Volunteers are invited to contact Cooperative Extension Service (262-5824) about presenting on a sustainable living topic you are knowledgeable and passionate about.
