Elizabeth Mapula is the Food Preservation Program Manager at University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. Her team gathers information to solve community food issues such as agriculture, health and nutrition and natural resources to name a few. Previously, Mapula was an instructor for UNCE’s Pick a better snack program—an in-school program that promotes healthy food consumption and experiential learning for primary-grade students at at-risk elementary schools in Clark and Washoe Counties.
At the Green Our Planet’s School Garden Conference, Mapula will discuss UNCE’s Food Preservation program, available to the community, and preservation methods for foods grown at local schools. In her speech, she will focus on how gardens can be a useful tool for educators. As an attendee of the conference, Mapula looks forward to engaging with other speakers, and takes a special interest in discussions about farmers markets and seed collecting and harvesting.
At Rob Roy’s Innevation Center on April 27, Mapula will reveal how food preservation can enrich school garden programming. Don’t miss her speech —register today! http://bit.ly/2FC2Jf2.
