Hart Square Canning Class Class


Please join us in discovering how to preserve food to prevent bacteria growth and promote longevity. Each student will have the opportunity to prep, cook, and take home three jars of produce. We will be providing locally grown produce for each student to use for practice.

You will learn the basics of cleaning and prepping produce for canning, sealing jars, using canning supplies, and storing preserved food.

If you are interested in growing plants for canning, we will also cover what plants can be used for a canning garden. There is something for everyone!
