A Nevins Library Event & Collection:

Preserving Your Garden’s Bounty

Thursday, September 29 at 6:30 pm

You’ve harvested all the vegetables from your garden, or maybe you found some produce you couldn’t pass up at the Farmer’s Market.  What do you do with it all?  Join Pat Graham as she walks you through the basics of canning your produce.  She will show you how it’s done safely, and answer questions you might have about the process.

Register Early!  Seating is very limited.

This program is part of the Nevins Library ScienceQuest initiative.
