SEMAP Workshop on Wash Stations & Cold Storage
October 24, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm $5 – $20
Join SEMAP for a tour of Skinny Dip Farm in Little Compton, RI. Husband and wife team Ben and Hannah Wolbach farm 4 acres of certified organic vegetables and flowers. We will get a chance to talk about the farm overall and additional topics to be covered include:
Post-harvest handling for long-term winter storage
Using Coolbot powered cold storage through the winter with the addition of heating capacity. The farm has 2 retrofitted coolers and will hopefully have a third pro set up in use by the time of the workshop.
Demo of the farm’s bike-powered root crop washer
Discussion of what crops they grow when for winter sales
Tickets are $5 for Beginning Farmers & $20 for General Admission. Please register by October 22nd if possible. Send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
