Appalachian Food Preservation: Lisa Conley

Spring is on its way! Gardens will be growing, and fruits and vegetables will be ready to eat - or preserve, pickle, freeze or dry! Lisa Conley is a graduate student in the Department of Sociology, and has been working on a documentary film about home food preservation methods in Appalachia since 2009.

In this podcast, Conley discusses her research for the film, as well as an upcoming event. On April 5th, 2012, Conley will be presenting at the Appalachian Forum on Home Food Preservation in Eastern Kentucky, which will include a panel discussion, an excerpt from Conley’s film, and a question and answer session about food safety. The forum is from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. in Room 206 of the UK Student Center.

The forum is sponsored by the Appalachian Center and the Appalachian Studies program and is free and open to the public.
