About the Presenter:
Celeste Longacre is the author of “Celeste’s Garden Delights.” She is also an accomplished gardener who has been growing most of her family’s vegetables for over 40 years. Celeste preserves the garden’s bounty by canning, freezing, drying, and fermenting it as well as storing her produce in a root cellar. She and her husband, Bob, live sustainably in a handmade octagonal home. During the cold winter months, their heat is provided by the firewood that Bob cuts. Much of their electricity is generated with an array of solar panels. For further information, visit her website at celestelongacre.com.
