Integrated Site Plan for Alison and Walter:
See the recent blog post 'Integrated Site Plan!' for a brief rundown of the plan.
On-Site Food Production and Storage
- This coming June, there will be an effort to plant 10 fruit trees, start a beehive, and construct a root cellar for the Goings family in Pine Ridge. (See the Donate section for a breakdown of the budget and expenses.)
- Root cellars are a simple and ancient technology that can be easily practiced by all. By harnessing the earth’s cooling and insulative features, vegetables and fruits can be stored for months. Root cellars aid in developing food security and obtaining a healthy, seasonal diet.
- This will be an opportunity to show members of the community the nuts and bolts of root cellar construction which will offer a means to offset food and utility costs, serving as a sustainable and cost-effective solution for this community.
