AMARILLO – Preserving the Harvest Food Preservation Class 2013 will be held Aug. 30 at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service offices for Potter County, 3301 E. 10th Ave. in Amarillo.

The workshop cost is $35 and each participant will take home a training notebook, the University of Georgia’s “So Easy to Preserve” publication, snacks and products preserved during the class.
