Asked September 9, 2020, 11:42 PM EDT

I would love to learn more about canning . Do u ever have a class? I wish I had paid attention to my Grandmothers. Also, Where would I begin to gather materials for "prepping" in case u dont have electricity? Thank you Karen Shelby 270-559-8503

Hi, Karen!

Glad you are interested in becoming a little more prepared. Kentucky weather is very unpredictable, so it pays to plan ahead. The McCracken County Extension Office webpage is a good place to start. http://mccracken.ca.uky.edu/ The Family & Consumer Sciences Agent position may be vacant, so I am forwarding your question about canning classes to the Area Nutrition Agent Nancy Kelley. Like everyone else, most classes offered by the Extension Service are being offered in a virtual format for the time being.

Here are links to some emergency preparedness materials. http://wwwagwx.ca.uky.edu/EDEN/prepare.html There are many resources here.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly at myount@uky.edu if you have more questions.
