    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.
