The days are getting longer and the temperature is rising and gardens are being planted. Now is the time to begin thinking about how you are going to preserve the abundance of produce you will have this season.

Nash County Cooperative Extension Family & Consumer Sciences department will be hosting several workshops teaching participants how to properly and safely preserve their food.
