Canning & Preserving Classes & Resources

Canning Class HeadspaceIf you are new to preserving, or if you’d like to expand your preserving skills, the best way to do that is to take a class. Your local  Cooperative Extension office is a great place to start. You can search the Extension’s schedule of classes here.

In addition to the Cooperative Extension there are a variety of other canning education opportunities and resources across the nation. We try to update this page regularly, but it is impossible to keep up with all of the opportunities, so we thank you for your understanding if sites are  no longer available. If you find that we are missing a great resource, you may leave a comment, and we will look into it!

    I am a Master Food Preserver in Las Vegas, NV. I am certified by the NV Cooperative Extension and the USDA. I teach classes in all phases of preserving.

    How do I go about being listed on your web site to offer my classes to those here in Southern Nevada?
