Joining and Using the GCC Community Root Cellar
The GCC community root cellar helps provide Gustavus with a more certain food supply. It’s a long-term solution for storing produce and canned goods that doesn’t require a freezer and uses very,very little electricity.
There is storage space in the root cellar for about 18 households.
A storage area “unit” includes space on 2 shelves, each approximately 2 feet square.
Members join for $20-$30 annually, depending on how much space they need.
Members share in the responsibilities for cleaning, maintenance, and temperature monitoring and agree to alert others if any potential problems arise.
