UGA Extension programs and services in home food preservation are varied and teach science-based methods for long-term storing of food at home.  Our goal is inform people how to preserve high quality foods with tested, safe methods. We offer classes in some locations around the state, as well as free and for-sale publications including the popular So Easy to Preserve book and how-to demonstration videos on DVDs. You also can find additional resources at the National Center for Home Food Preservation managed by the University of Georgia.


UGA Family and Consumer Science agents in many Georgia counties provide programs that teach the how-to's of canning, freezing and/or drying of foods, as well as making jams and jellies and pickled foods. Programs can be hands-on workshops, demonstrations or presentations. Check out the calendar of Extension events or contact your local county office to know what is available in or around your county.
