At Monkepod Jam, we preserve not only the abundance of fruits and vegetables, but also the community and heritage of our island. Preserving Hawaii Workshops are offered to our local community and island visitors looking to experience the various methods used to preserve the bounty of Kauai's agriculture. Each Preserving Hawaii Workshop focuses on one seasonal item, using one method of preservation. These workshops are smaller, more intimate than many of our other workshop offerings. The small class size enables each student to focus on the produce and techniques shared.
