Garden and Food Preservation Workshop – March 29th
People interested in gardening and basic food preservation should make plans to attend the 2013 Garden and Food Preservation program on March 29th at the Kent Manor Meeting Room from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.
Topics covered will include the basics of growing vegetables in a home garden and how to preserve what you grow this summer.
Food preservation has been gaining in popularity during the past few years. People are interested in producing their own food for economic reasons and so they can know about the quality and safety of the food they feed their family. Greg Drake will present information on basic vegetable production and Tracy Thornton Cowles will present the food preservation portion of the program. There is no fee to attend the program. If someone in Morgantown is interested in growing a garden but cannot get their garden spot tilled for planting, Melissa Embry has volunteered to bring her tractor and tiller into town and till garden spots for free. If you would like to talk to Melissa about getting your garden spot prepared call the Extension Office and we will get you on the list.
To sign up for the workshop or for more information, contact the Butler County Extension Office at 112 E GL Smith Street, Morgantown, or call 270-526-3767.
Educational programs of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability, or national origin.
