Growing your own food is one of the main reasons many people start gardening. And there's no better way to savor the season than preserving your homegrown fruits and vegetables for later enjoyment. But do you know how to can, freeze, and dry safely, or what equipment you really need? Watch this webinar to learn safe methods of food preservation and explore reliable resources and tested recipes, so you can fill your shelves—and maybe those of your family and friends—with your summer surplus.

Presenter: Patty Case is a registered dietitian and has worked as a nutrition educator for over for 34 years. She has taught classes on health, nutrition, and food preservation. She is also Professor Emeritus of Extension Family and Community Health at Oregon State University's Klamath County Extension. In her role with the Extension Service, she collaborated with local organizations to link resources between the university and the community to “ensure lifelong health and well-being for every person, every family, and every community."
