UMaine Extension offers webinar on root cellaring Sept. 28

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. on Monday, 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.


Registration is required; a $5 donation is optional. Register on the event webpage to attend live or receive a link to the recording. This session is the final in the summer gardening webinar series.
