2018 Farm Workshop: Mobile Walk-in Cooler

May 3 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

- $20

When: Thursday, May 3 from 2 to 5 pm

Where: SAHC’s Community Farm — 180 Mag Sluder Road, Alexander NC 28701

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.
