Renay Knapp, with the Hendersonville Cooperative Extension service, will guide the class through the process of canning vegetables. At the end of the class, each participant will receive a pint of canned vegetables, processed in the class.

The class will be held at the Polk County Extension Center on Monday, Aug. 5. This two to three hour workshop will be at 2 p.m. and another at 6 p.m. Both classes cover the same materials. There is a small cost for the workshop.
