Northern Gardening: Root cellars

A common concern for gardeners and farmers in Cook County is how to keep produce from the garden fresh, safe, and edible beyond the end of our very short growing season. One possible solution to this problem is a root cellar. Listen below to this month’s Northern Gardening to learn more about root cellars: what they are, the experiences of local growers who use them, and the science behind their use.

Northern Gardening airs the second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. and is rebroadcast the following Saturday at 6 a.m. All previously-aired programs are archived on our website, to listen to at any time.
