Root Cellar News: Community grant reminder & Macleans article

There’s still time to apply for $400 to build a community root cellar.

The Ecology Action Centre is looking to support community root cellars throughout Nova Scotia.  We are now seeking applicants for a third round of funding. We will be awarding one $400 grant to help a community purchase materials and/or hire a builder to construct a community root cellar.  Additionally, any applications not successful this round will be kept on file for consideration in a potential future round of funding.  (We are currently seeking funding to support more root cellars.)

Potential root cellars must be located in community owned spaces.  Root cellars in private homes or businesses are not eligible.  Root cellars must also be located in Nova Scotia.

To apply for community root cellar funding, please complete the application questions and email to Marla MacLeod at

Application deadline is October 1, 2012.

Yours in food,
