West Carleton Community Root Cellar - Connecting Small-Scale Farmers, Families and Local Food

(Theme 5 – Food, Theme 8 – Health)

Organization: Deep Roots Food Hub (DRFH)

Project Start Date: Start Fall 2019

Objective:

The Deep Roots Food Hub is pilot testing the community built root cellar located on NCC property where local, small-scale farmers can rent space to store their crops. This root cellar will provide farmers with a sustainable, energy-efficient and time-tested storage solution opening up year-round sales opportunities.

Make locally grown, healthy food more available year-round in West Carleton.

It is estimated the above-ground root cellar will be able to store up to 27,000 kilograms of produce when it becomes fully operational.
