Are there any local resources for novices to learn how to can and preserve?

Thank you for your question. It's great to hear that you're interested in learning how to preserve food. We have had several classes this summer. There's room in the Preserving Tomatoes & Salsa class scheduled for this Thursday, Aug 29 at 6pm at the Calvary Lutheran Church in Stayton. Let me know if you'd like to register.

There will be a Jerky Making class at the Yamhill County Extension Office in McMinnville on Monday October 28 at 6pm. We'll also be offering a Preserving Soups class there on November 12 at 6pm. Call Kelli at 503-434-7517 to register.

I'm in the process of scheduling another pressure canning class. The date should be posted on the Marion County Extension website (extension.oregonstate.edu/marion) by the end of this week.

There are also some classes offered through other Extension Offices, which are listed here: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/program/all/mfp/events

Best wishes!

Thank you so much!
