Green greener greenest, In the kitchen, root cellar

Putting down roots

Earlier this year, we received a $10,000 grant from the Foundation for Sustainability and Innovation to build a root cellar. We’re thrilled to announce that construction has begun!

Going into the hillside below Boys’ Hill, smack dab between Compost Castle and archery, and powered by the existing solar array atop Bishop Wolterstorff Lodge, the root cellar will allow us to store our garden and farm produce, keeping it fresh and useable over a longer period of time, with minimal energy usage.

One thought on “Putting down roots

  1. Growing up on the farm, we always had the root cellar. We stored apples, potatoes and all of the “canned” vegetables, from pickles to sauer kraut, pickled pigs feet (oh yeah) and hot peppers, pickled green tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, and more. Even my Dad’s homemade wine. Gotta love root cellars.
