"OSLU classes for August are on the topic of freezing and dehydrating in order to preserve the harvest from your garden, and we'll also discuss planning a fall garden," said Deb Slack, heritage studies teacher. "Ozark Self Reliant Living University provides free classes every month on topics we used to learn at home from our grandmothers. Life skills that everyone can use, in this case how to have a great garden, raising nutritious, great tasting food for less money."

The West Plains class will be held on Sunday, Aug. 12, at the Next Step Seventh Day Adventist Church in West Plains.
