Food Preservation Demo Registration

The popular food preservation program, Discover You Can: Learn, Make, Share℠ will be joining with Florida Organic Growers to help the community learn to can and vacuum seal food, make recipes and use fresh local produce to enjoy and share favorite dishes with friends all year long.

The program will be held from June through August at two farmers markets in Alachua County – the Wednesday Downtown Union Street Farmers Market in Bo Diddley Community Plaza and the Saturday Alachua County Farmers Market on 441.

The Wednesday Union Street Farmers Market will hold their demonstrations on June 11, July 9 and August 13. The workshops will begin at 5:30 p.m.

The Saturday Alachua County Farmers Market on 441 will hold their demonstrations on June 21, July 19 and August 16. The workshops begin at 9:30 a.m.

The demonstrations are free and open to the public. Register to attend a demonstration and you will be automatically entered for your chance to win a basket filled with food preserving goodies including homemade canned goods, a Ball® Canning Discovery™ Kit, Canning and Vacuum Sealing Guides, Ball® and FoodSaver® coupons and other exciting items!

If you would like to attend more than one demonstration or all six, please email your registration to Van Tran with FOG at van@foginfo.org.
