Do you need temporary cold storage to bring your fresh produce or farm products to market? Learn how to build a mobile walk-in cooler using the CoolBot, a tool that overrides an air conditioner’s temperature sensors, allowing you to convert a household air conditioner into a cooling unit.
We will cover design considerations, materials, and costs for converting an enclosed trailer into a mobile walk-in cooler maintaining 38-40° F.
This workshop is open to the public; everyone is welcome!
Cost: $20. Registration is required.
