Remember those community root cellar grants were we talking about several months ago? Curious about what’s going on? Well, the Deanery Project in Ship Harbour, our first grant recipient, is hosting a root cellar work party on May 18-19 and you’re invited to attend.
Kick it Root Down: Work Party @ The Deanery Project
When: May 18th-19th (Friday-Saturday). 10 am-5 pm.
Where: The Deanery Project
37 Deanery Road, Lower West Ship Harbour
What to bring: lunch/food for potluck supper(s), good work clothes and songs, as we’ll be rolling down each night with a jam session/potluck supper. If you’d like to stay over night, please bring sleeping bag/pillow/mat etc.
Why: After receiving a Community Root Cellar Grant through the Ecology Action Centre, the Deanery Project building team has unearthed many natural designs for our basement Root Cellar space.
The Plan is to construct wattle and daub walls, insulated with locally sourced wool. Most of the materials (i.e. sand, clay, small dimensional round wood) will be harvested in the immediate area in and about the Deanery grounds.
From Dartmouth take Main Street/Highway 107 out of Dartmouth (direction Eastern Shore).
Follow the #107 for about 25 minutes.
At the “T” intersection – turn right into Musquodoboit Harbour – follow the old #7 highway east for about another 20 minutes, passing through Lake Charlotte – the next community is Ship Harbour
Just past Family Fries restaurant on the right, turn right down the Lower Ship Harbour Rd. Follow for 5 km. (past the Church) is Deanery Rd. on your left.
