Introduction to Home Food Preservation

LIBERTY, May 6, 2013 - Remember when Grandma and Mom would spend hours in the kitchen canning the spring and fall garden harvest? Remember how great it was to have those vegetables available for our families year round? Do you tend to plant more than your family and friends can eat? If you answered yes to any of these three questions, come join the Liberty County Master Gardener Association on Thursday, May 9th at 7:00 p.m. for “Introduction to Home Food Preservation” The program will be presented by Alexis Cordova, County Extension Agent - Family and Consumer Science for Liberty County.
