The Madison Area CSA Coalition in partnership with the Farley Center for Peace, Justice and Sustainability underwent a 2 day workshop to teach farmers how to construct a 60′ x 30′ packshed and walk-in cooler in an existing pole barn. This handout provides an overview on how to build your own structure based on the experience of the workshop for under $5000. This publication is complete with figures and photos to assist in the construction process.
