Mark Your Calendars: Can-A-Rama 2010

Dear Canvolutionaries,

A year ago, you joined us in solidarity, coast to coast, to resurrect the lost art of “putting up” food. With the growing season underway in most parts of the country, we are ramping up for Year Two of the Canvolution and hope you’ll join us at the canning kettle once again!

To that end, we’re thrilled to announce Can-a-Rama 2010, a simultaneous show of cans around the country, with home canners bellying up to the stoves and preserving their favorite seasonal goodies. We invite you to join us the weekend of July 24 & 25, by hosting a canning party in your own community, as we will be doing in cities and towns across America.

But that’s not all, folks! Once you get the canning bug, you kinda can’t stop, as many CAA members can tell you. In fact, some canners recently shared that sometimes they get so busy canning they forget to stop, pop open a jar and the time to enjoy the “fruits” of their labor. That’s why we’ll host the first-ever Eat Up What You Put Up, a celebration of our bounty in jars! Save the date for the weekend of October 15-16; like the Can-a-Rama, we encourage you to host gatherings in your own communities to sample your canning handiwork and to share with your fellow canners.
