Gardening with Physical Limitations Part 4: Canning and Preservation

In this session you will learn how to get started canning and preserving the food you have successfully grown in your garden. We will cover basic equipment and techniques and address how people with physical limitations can make adaptations to make canning and preserving fun, not painful! 

Presenters: Laura Akgerman and Kathy Tutt. 

About the Everyone Can Garden! Series

Do you have a physical limitation such as mobility issues, chronic pain, arthritis, and skin sensitivities that constrains outdoor activity? Do you want to learn about how you can still enjoy gardening despite these challenges? OSU Extension and the CFAES Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion invites you to the 2021 Gardening with Physical Limitations Webinar Series Everyone Can Garden! Participants are welcome to attend one or more session between March and August. We will address the basics of planning and planting a vegetable garden, learn about basic maintenance, including pest management, canning and preservation basics, and finish with end-of-season clean-up and preparing for next year all while taking into consideration a variety of physical limitations. Each session is designed to be a stand-alone program, so feel free to attend as many or few as you want! 

This webinar series is free and open to the public.
