The statewide OSU Extension Food Preservation Team is offering live “Office Hours” events to be held bi-weekly through the end of July.  As we expect home food preservation to be a big topic this year, we really want to get people started off right, even if we can’t meet them face-to-face.

Each of these Tuesday sessions will be from 4:00-5:00 pm.  Sessions will start with a short presentation and the remainder of the time will be for open Q&A.  The presentations will be recorded and posted for those who could not attend live. Please visit for the specific topics, calendar and links to register for each session.
