Root cellars are essential to have if you purchase or grow much of your own garden produce, save your own seeds, or choose to store bulk canned and packaged goods. Root Cellars make use of the earth’s geothermal capacity, so no energy is required to control the temperature which typically stays around 40-50 degrees. Root cellars are ideal to have because they extend the life of food. Root cellars can be made from home basements, the space under a porch or a north facing slope. Some people have even buried shipping containers and turned them into cellars.

Another root cellar option is to make one out of earthbag construction. Get details on this building method from here…
