Both classes are offered without charge in the museum’s community room. You can select one or both workshops, and reservations are not required.
In “Growing and Preserving Fruits and Vegetables,” from 9 a.m. to noon, find out what edibles you can grow in your High Desert backyard, and learn how to preserve your harvest. This class is taught by UCCE (UC Cooperative Extension) Master Gardeners and Master Food Preservers.

The classes are offered at no cost, but museum admission is not included. Now showing at the Victor Valley Museum are exhibits that focus on High Desert cultural and natural history along with “Visions of Southern California: The Mid-Century Modern Designs of Paul Revere Williams and Maria Kipp,” and CuriousCity, an interactive experience especially for toddlers.
