Registration required; Open for all ages; children must be accompanied by an adult

Discover the history of canning and storing food. Designed for families to participate together, we will look at cans and jars, taste canned fruits and vegetables, prepare carrots for canning, and finally can the carrots at the Bradley County Cannery. At the end, take home your own jar of carrots!
