ORONO, Maine — Root cellaring is a low-energy method for storing the bounty from your garden. University of Maine Cooperative Extension will offer a webinar focused on how to store your produce from noon–1 p.m. Sept. 28.
“Root Cellaring: A Cheap and Easy Method for Preserving Your Harvest,” led by UMaine Extension Professional Jason Lilley, will cover the ideal storage conditions for most of our crops, and how to create those various conditions throughout most households. While the talk will touch on specialized outbuilding structures for root cellaring, the focus will be on cheap and simple modifications to your garden or areas of your homes to optimize produce storage length and quality.
