Naturally Storing Food

A root cellar is excellent for storing food! It can store food for long periods of time which can be beneficial during the winter season. The earth soil on top of the cellar controls the temperature naturally, keeping your food from freezing or overheating. We are going to be building one for our sustainable home. When considering our design for the root cellar, we decided to buy a book entitled 'The Complete Root Cellar Book! The book is available on Amazon and we will be reviewing it and sharing what we learn in an upcoming post.
