Citrus Prservation Class January 18, 2019

UCCE offers Citrus Preservation Classes in Madera

We are pleased to offer a citrus preservation class to the community in Madera County: Friday, January 18 from 12 – 3pm, at the Madera County Fairgrounds in Madera.

Join UC Master Food Preservers as they step through canning, dehydrating and freezing as methods of preserving citrus to use throughout the year in your family’s meals. Learn how to make citrus-based marmalade and jelly, and how to can citrus sections. See how you can use almost all parts of citrus by making candied citrus peel, preserved peels, citrus salt, powdered citrus peel, and edible potpourri. Get tips and tricks to make your frozen citrus maintain top quality in the freezer. Throughout the class you’ll receive suggestions on how to incorporate preserved citrus in meals. You’ll leave with lots of recipes and ideas to try on your own at home.

The class is $15. Pre-registration is required at Contact Robin Cleveland at or 530-621-5528 for more information.

"Three Sisters" Demonstration Garden

2018 Iris Garden (1)


The Three Sisters Demonstration Garden is a large project being developed by University of California Cooperative Extension Madera County Master Gardeners as a permanent resource for residents of Madera County. It will provide learning opportunities for K-12 students and community college students as well as for the general public.

The Demonstration Garden is located at the Madera State Center Community College on a two-acre parcel allotted by the college for this purpose. The name "Three Sisters" was chosen for the garden in recognition of the wise growing practices and respect for the land shown by Native American cultures. The garden site was officially dedicated in March 2009, although there is still much work to be done to complete this project.
