Saturday at the Rock series to teach canning, preserving

Do you ever wish you could enjoy local summer delicacies like peaches, blackberries, and okra all year long? Canning and preserving your own food is a guaranteed way to provide fresh, healthy food to your friends and family throughout any season.

At this month’s Saturday at the Rock, Denise Everson, Family and Consumer Sciences Agent with the UGA Cooperative Extension, will share research-based recipes and provide instructions on safe methods and techniques for participants at all levels of knowledge.

The May edition of the monthly series will be held at Rock Eagle 4-H Center near Eatonton on Saturday, May 24. Sessions are appropriate for all ages and cost $10 per person. The program runs from 9:30-11:30 a.m. and includes an opportunity to visit Rock Eagle’s Natural History Museum following the activity. Advanced registration is required.

For more information or to register, contact Laura Kent at 706-484- 2881 or by email at lmkent@uga.edu.

Different programs take place each month, excluding December. A complete list of Saturday at the Rock sessions may be found online at http://www.rockeagle4h.org/ee/ community/SaturdayattheRock. html.
