Cooperative Extension will host a food preservation workshop for anyone interested in learning more about food preservation from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 12.

The workshop will be held at the Agriculture Center, 2727 Old Concord Road in Salisbury.

Participants will learn the many food items that can be canned and/or frozen. Learning what you can freeze and can’t freeze is one of the hardest lessons for the beginning freezer, so if you aren’t sure which foods to can or freeze this workshop is for you.

During this workshop, the list of what to can and what to freeze will be revealed along with the how and why.

There is no charge but space is limited so pre-registration is required.
