Summer of 2022: Sarah Lewis ‘s Cooperative Extension maritime tour.

Guests: Sarah Lewis, UAF Cooperative Extension Service
The Pacific Sapphire is not only transportation for Sarah Lewis but hauls all the equipment she needs to teach classes in canning and food preservation (Photo courtesy of Sarah Lewis).

While some Cooperative Extension programs go on the road, Sarah Lewis takes hers on the water. Every summer she navigates the waters of Southeast Alaska in her family boat and pulls up  to remote communities to teach classes in food preservation and small business development.  While it’s an adventure, Lewis says her Maritime Extension program also helps to cut travel costs.

Air date: Wednesday, August 24, 2022
