The Community Crop Cache (C3)
The Community Crop Cache (C3) is currently complete!
The C3 project, funded by a UGA Office of Sustainability grant, focuses on converting a reclaimed shipping container into a climate-controlled produce storage unit to increase our ability to distribute fresh produce to community members experiencing food insecurity.
We have completely refurbished the inside of the ex-military container and installed the commercial size airconditioner. Currently, the container is holding all shelf-stable items in order to protect them from the Georgia heat. We now have finished installing the selves and the C3 holds shelf-stable veggies, ripens fruits, bread, and more. Plus the completed murals have brightened up the UGArden atmosphere greatly.
