We really enjoyed the class, it was great to meet and talk with you. Appreciated the knowledge you were so willing to share, I know your information will help us in the future. Can't wait for any additional tours or classes in gardening or aquaponics.

Good program. Would like to have discussed the particulars of canning acid-based foods as compared to others, why do you need pectin, why does canning time vary, what can you use water bath canning for and what should you use pressure canning for, and really wish we could have taken home a quart jar of what we made. Great facilities and good presentation.

We had a great time. We learned a lot. John, Teresa, Jonathan and Sophie were just so helpful. They made the class fun. You were never lost and they were all there every step of the way. They answered questions and shared what worked for them and why they found it useful. The class in involved with the canning process every step of the way, from chopping up the veggies to the final pop of the jars. After taking this class I am very confident and comfortable with being able to can.

What an INCREDIBLE class! This was the FIRST class I have been to through Groupon that didn't spend the entire class trying to sell me on other classes or products. They offered classes and products, but information wasn't held back like a carrot on a stick to get me to buy more. I learned so much - more than I expected - and have a group of friends who want to go back with me to learn more. BEST.CLASS.EVER. Thank you, Groupon! I never would have thought about doing a canning class until you offered it!

I learned so much. The family was friendly and easy to talk to. They were very knowledgeable about their business. I will be going back for a tour of the gardens when the weather is better.

From Our Editors

On Aquaponics and Earth’s sustainable farm, tilapia pools teeming with fish come up against rows of organic plants, which they hydrate via the farm’s energy-efficient growing and waste-recycling system. Founders and aqua-farmers John and Teresa Musser began experimenting with high-yield aquaponics in response to the crushing poverty they saw abroad and invented much of the equipment and methods they use in the search for a sustainable, affordable system they could share with the world. The Mussers have worked around the globe in orphanages and small villages since 1979 but began shifting their focus to infrastructure and education work to bring easy-to-learn agricultural techniques to impoverished areas.

The Mussers maintain their DeSoto farm not only to grow food, but to act as an educational resource for people who want to observe their methods and build their own aquaponics systems. Their organic microfarm, populated by rabbits, goats, microcows, and vermicomposting bins, harvests hundreds of pounds of produce each year on minimal substrate. Inspired by their frantic efforts one year to absorb a surplus of produce, the Mussers lead regular canning classes where students learn the proper ways to can seasonal veggies, meats, and blown kisses.
