The Community Crop Cache (C3)

The Community Crop Cache (C3) is currently almost 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. As we wait for the remaining shelves we need to complete the inside for produce storage; we have completed the murals that have brightened up the UGArden atmosphere greatly.
