Cancarb’s on-site Greenhouse has produced its first crop of 2023! Thanks to the volunteer work of employees, retirees, and summer students, 25lbs of tomatoes were harvested. Vice President, Quality & Development Ross Buchholz and Plant Manager Robert Nichols were able to present these to Root Cellar Executive Director Melissa Mullis. With a historically hot summer well under way, more produce will continue to make its way to the Root Cellar in the coming weeks.
The Root Cellar is a homegrown solution for sustainability. Their Food and Wellness Hub is a central location for all levels of society to connect, access resources and participate in the greater community through the power of local food.
