For years, USDA approved canning techniques classes and workshops have been taught to our Maryland communities. With the growing demand in this area,  these classes/workshops are now an integral part of Grow It Eat It program developed by University of Maryland Extension. 

The food preservation classes are intended to provide a hands on learning experience for beginners and advanced canners.  This course is aimed at introducing the food science principles of high and/or low acid foods to be preserved, as well as the knowledge to safely can to prevent botulism.  For our advanced canners this class provides them with the updated science, resources, and tools that may not have been available when they first started canning.

 Typical Workshop
