Host your own canning party!

Preservation Station is an enclosed trailer that unpacks into a high-efficiency, three-season food preservation kitchen and workshop space. This lightweight trailer can be pulled onto any of hundreds of small farms and backyards at the peak of produce ripeness.
Farmers: Are you swimming in tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, zucchini, beets, peaches? Invite your customers to your farm for a day of canning, and sell that extra crop.
Gardeners: Swap your bounty with your friends! Invite them over for a canning party.
Community gardeners: Wrap up the season at your community garden by harvesting and preserving your hard work and taste the satisfaction in the winter months. Share jars with fellow plot owners and get a variety for your shelf! Great end-of-year party!
Beginners: Get specific instructions and connect with other canners to get started on your journey to eat local food all year. Learn the latest canning techniques for safe food preservation.
Experts: Help pass on the art of canning to others that are ready to try!
Partiers: Consider hiring the trailer for your next event: birthdays, foodie fun, ladies’ night, or block party!
