Jam On!

At the Summer Jam, kids can get crafty, taste preserves, and meet players from the Oakland A’s.

Love to make marmalade? Jive on jam? Churn out chutney? Enter your favorite seasonal creation in CUESA’s summer preserves contest. Top three winners will take home food-related prizes, and everyone is welcome to taste and vote for the People’s Choice. Also happening at the Summer Jam: Becky Courchesne of Frog Hollow Farm gives a jam-making demo, kids can make their own seasonal tote bag, StopWaste offers tips on preventing food waste, and DJ Ren the Vinyl Archaeologist spins the tunes.
