It’s harvest season, and the number of people raising their own gardens and planning to preserve some of their fruits and vegetables is on the rise. Women who are new to canning and freezing, or want to brush up on their skills, are invited to join farmers Ellen Walsh Rosmann and Maria Rosmann at Rosmann Family Farms 1222 Ironwood Rd., Harlan, IA, on Saturday, Sept. 17 from 1 – 4 p.m. for Women, Food and Agriculture Network’s home-canning field day.

Bring your own fruits and vegetables to process for canning or freezing, or learn by helping others with theirs. Learn in a fun, informal environment with experienced canners on hand. To RSVP or to learn more about the event, call Ellen by Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 712-579-1933.

“Canning are freezing are skills that can provide families with healthful, nutritious choices year round,” says Leigh Adcock, executive director of WFAN.  “We are excited to sponsor this event and hope many in the central Iowa region will take advantage of the knowledge of Ellen, Maria and other food preservation experts who will be on hand.”
