Saturday Session I

Traditional root cellars use the earth’s ambient temperature for optimal storage of vegetables with minimal energy inputs, but these root cellars have a number of practical limitations. Learn how to combine time-honored techniques for winter storage with modern insulation and management technology for efficient winter storage of vegetable crops.

Janaki Fisher-Merritt operates the Food Farm in Wrenshall, Minn. The farm currently supports 15 acres of vegetables. In addition to regular summer shares, the Food Farm serves wholesale outlets and delivers winter shares to their CSA members until April.
