The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to announce a new class called “Preserve the Harvest,” conducted by experts from the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County.

“With New Jersey’s rich tradition of home gardening, Preserve the Harvest is a great opportunity for Union County residents to learn the basics of safely canning and freezing, so home grown fruits and vegetables can be enjoyed all year,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Linda Carter.

The class is scheduled for Friday October 11, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Extension offices in the Union County Colleen Fraser Building in Westfield, 300 North Avenue East.
