Food Preservation

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 to 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.
