Winter 2018 Speaker Series: Picked, Packed and Shipped: Tomato Canning in the Chesapeake
Long before refrigeration made crabs the juggernaut of the summer canning season, the tomato was the warm-weather king of Chesapeake packing houses — and the counterpart to the mighty wintertime oyster harvest. In our four-part series, explore the fascinating ways that canning transformed the Chesapeake’s industry, culture, community, and agricultural landscape of the 19th and 20th centuries through lectures, objects, films, and community conversations.
Cost per session is $6 for members, $8 for non-members, or register for all sessions and save: $20 for members, $28 for non-members. All sessions will be held in CBMM’s Van Lennep Auditorium.
