During the canning session, Mo Moodie from the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture demystified the art of canning. She assured the nervous group that if you follow safety precautions (such as keeping jars sterlyized, always using new lids, etc.) that there shouldn’t be much of a problem.

This is something I will definitely be trying in the coming months – as soon as I can find some cheap ball jars on eBay or Criagslist. You can find additional videos from my day at Rooting DC at Grown in the City.
