A little bit of this, a little bit of that at TCEH educational workshop


TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe County Extension Homemakers is inviting the community to a free workshop on Thursday.

There will be several speakers including a representative from the Wabash Area Lifetime Learning Association. WALLA is an organization for adults 50 years and older that offers its members classes on everything from genealogy to horticulture.

“They [WALLA members] take trips several times a year, and they also have classes for senior citizens,” said Phyllis Kochert, the chairwoman of the upcoming workshop.

Another topic covered will be fermentation. Master food preserver Donna Hoaks from the Purdue Extension Office said it’s a practice with a long rooted tradition.

“Fermentation is one of the oldest preservation methods known to mankind,” said Hoaks. “It’s nothing new. It’s just made a comeback.”

The workshop is Thursday, Oct. 20, at 6:30 p.m. Registration begins at 6 p.m. It will be held at the Tippecanoe County Extension Office at 3150 Sagamore Pkwy. South.
