You've carefully selected and planted herbs for your garden.
They look like they're ready to harvest.
But are they?
And how do you harvest them without hurting the plant?
What do you do with them to preserve them?
Let's face it -- there's nothing more frustrating than spending all your time and effort to grow your garden, only to realize you have no idea what to do with it when the harvest actually starts coming.
Sure, eating fresh isn't too difficult to figure out. But can you preserve your herbs for later use?
You may think preserving is too difficult. You fear investing your time and money into something you're not even sure will turn out well. Maybe you're a little bit afraid of doing it wrong.
Other gardeners make it look easy. But for you, you think your questions seem silly. You didn't have a grandma bring you into her kitchen and show you how it's done. The resources online and in books get overwhelming...fast.
If only you had someone to show you how it's done. That would be a game changer for you. Just imagine:
The problem? Not knowing when to harvest, which method of preserving is right for you or for each crop, and how to make sure it's done safely, often make preservation seem like more trouble than it's worth.
But what if there's a way to make it doable for you -- and maybe even...FUN?
My first year as a gardener, I dove into food preservation, because my goal was to grow food for my family. But I soon learned how much I missed by not having a grandma or mom teach me how to do those things.
I did a few important things right, though. I followed recipes tested for safety. I spent hours in research -- research that paid off. I jumped in and learned by doing.
But all the while, I wished I had someone SHOW me how it was done.
Sure, I still had good results -- enough to keep doing it -- but...
Here's what that would look like...
Whether you want to make the most of your fresh harvest, you want to make preserving a way of life, or you fall somewhere in the middle, come alongside me as I harvest, prepare, and preserve my harvest.
I’ve taken my decade of experience harvesting and preserving 80%+ of the produce our family eats, and I'm bringing you alongside my own process.
The end result? You will learn how to harvest and preserve much of what you've grown and stock your pantry with your own homegrown food!
If food security is important to you, and you want to learn how to use and preserve every bit you can, this is an opportunity I promise you will not want to miss.

In most instances, if I'm using a particular tool, I mention other options if you don't have it. If you are interested in a tool I use, the Resources section in the beginning of the course will have links for those tools.
Most of them are, yes, in the Resources section for you to print. The only ones that are not available are ones I used directly from a published cookbook. I let you know which recipes those are and how to get a copy of that book if you want.
The comments section of the course is open for you to ask questions along the way, and I'll respond as promptly as I can.
You'll get access to all of it! You can pick and choose which video lessons to watch based on where you're at in your harvest.
How does "lifetime" sound? As long as I still sell and maintain the course (and I have no intention of stopping anytime soon), you have full access to the course platform, including any future updates. If at some point I choose to close the course or change the way it's updated, you'll be given the opportunity to download the videos to access anytime on your own device.
