You’re going to be hearing a lot about root cellars here at “Adventures in Local Food” over the next while. Root cellars are the next big adventure. I feel like I have a good handle on cooking and canning, but root cellars are still relatively new to me.
Fortunately, we have a wonderful community of root cellar enthusiasts to draw on. And some of those wonderful people are opening up their homes and cellars to us on Saturday, November 26.
Yes, it’s root cellar tour time again! If you missed last year’s tour, or even if you didn’t, now’s your chance to check out some root cellars in the Halifax area.
On November 26, starting at 3 pm sharp, we’ll be visiting 3 different root cellars – two in private homes, and the newly built root cellar at the Ecology Action Centre. At the end of the tour, we’ll gather at the Ecology Action Centre for a potluck. (Bring your favourite root vegetable dish!)
The event is free, but pre-registration is required as space is limited. To register, visit our website. We’ll be carpooling from site to site, so please indicate on your registration form if you have a car and are able to take some passengers.
