Most every Sunday, we try to post an image of old posters that we find during online surfing. We enjoy the ones that reflect farming, gardening and/or food preservation and rationing. We enjoy them because we often wonder if anyone today would heed the kind of advice they gave back then...enjoy!

Now this is an interesting poster image. This comes from the early 1940's and was apparently a teaching/classroom type event that you signed up for. In conjunction with the Work Project's Administration, Pennsylvania State College, Church Organizations and Garden Club, it taught people how to save and preserve their surplus food.
I would love to have known what they taught, my guess would be canning? How amazing would it be for groups to get together today to teach this? Of course, knowing today's society, some would say "surplus food? What's that?". Sadly more food is probably thrown away today than was ever preserved then.
Hope you are having a good weekend!
