Is it a garage? Is it a hill for sliding? Is it a passageway to The Secret World of Og? No, silly! What you see here is a root cellar, complete with a front entryway! Tucked underneath the cover of ground, Leonard Vassallo has converted an old oil tank into a cellar that’s providing him with space to store produce from his garden, year round. We think it’s pretty amazing. Maybe you will too!
This time of year it’s easy to get stressed and to spend money we don’t have as we rush to get ready for dinners, gifts, and visitors. But apply some of these values of the local food movement to your plans, and you’ll find that you can have a more relaxing, creative, joyful, and community-based holiday season this year.
