Owner and Creator, Preserving Now

At 9 years old, Lyn Deardorff would skim foam off her grandmother’s crocks of sauerkraut, readying them for canning. Growing up, she delved deeper into the world of preserving, canning the produce from her first backyard garden. Now, she boasts more than 40 years of experience canning, along with the credentials to match: she earned a ServeSafe certificate to teach food preparation and has taken several advanced courses at UGA’s food science school. Today, she leads workshops that help locavores throughout Atlanta enjoy their land’s bounty year-round.
