Diane Devereaux, The Canning Diva®, is a Michigan native who started canning her thirteenth year. She immediately grew a passion for the art of home canning and preserving and started her own garden at the mere age of fifteen. It was at this young age she learned the many benefits of natural pest control; crop rotation and healthy soil factors; heirloom seed production and collection; healthy meal creation and, of course, preserving her garden’s beautiful bounty.
She received her Bachelor Degree in International Business from Davenport University and has spent many years developing her talent for business. During this time Diane experienced a rewarding career in disaster management which gave her the ability to utilize her skills in food preservation, survival and sustainability. Her tenure in home canning combined with her background in disaster management led her to create The Canning Diva® where she is free to blend her passion for gardening and preserving with her knowledge of preparedness and self-reliance.
