Quality for Keeps: Home Food Preservation is a product that evolved from a growing interest in home food preservation, access to local food and home gardening in Missouri.

The curriculum contains six lessons, each including a lesson plan, hands-on activity and helpful handouts. The core content of the lessons is found in the speaker’s notes of the Power Point presentations found on the accompanying CD. University of Missouri Extension guides on food preservation serve as the core reference materials for participants. Field faculty may choose to offer a series of three or up to six sessions based upon their perception of local needs in their community.
