Learn about Canning with OSUE!
Join us for a canning demo at Harding Middle School with Joanna Rini from the Ohio State University Extension. Joanna joined the OSUE as an extension educator in 2014. With a background in teaching and a passion for helping people of all ages successfully transition through life's stages, Joanna studied Human & Consumer Sciences at Ohio University, earning a B.S. in Education and an M.A. in Higher Education. She now uses this foundation to help people live healthier and more productive lives by delivering research-based programs in Medina County.
Pressure canner testing will be available for $5.
