The Person/Granville, Caswell and Orange County Extension Offices are also joining forces to offer two in-person, hands-on canning workshops on Water Bath Canning on Tuesday, April 25 at 6 p.m. and Pressure Canning on Thursday, May 25 at 6 p.m. for only $10 each. Workshops will take place at the Orange County Extension Office Building on Hwy 70. These two workshops are for anyone who wants to take that virtual information and actually apply it in the kitchen getting some hands-on practice. Therefore, it is very important that you attend the virtual workshop on those specific topics to get all of that information before attending these in-person, hands-on classes. You can register at the Person, Granville, Orange or Caswell offices. Registration is first-come, first-serve and spots are limited. Your spot is not reserved until your payment is received.
