Deep Roots CPS Farm, Charlotte, NC
Cherie Jzar is constructing a packing shed with a washing tank, screen drying table, and wet area to ensure quick processing of their harvest. The new space will also have two sinks for cleaning vegetables and flowers, as well as a walk-in cooler for storing their harvest. They are currently processing all items at an off-site processing station, so this new set-up will greatly improve their farm’s efficiency.
