    • Time: 10AM-1PM
  • Game - How Do you Preserve That?: Using fake foods (potatoes, corns, beans, etc.), guests will be asked to match with the best preservation technique (for example, corn can be dried).

  • “Learn More” with Dr. Andrea Field - How Does it Work? Preservation Matching Game: Using historic photographs and materials, guests will match preservation techniques together (for example, an ice house with an ice box).
