#AdaptingHeritage Forum 2017 - Introducing Dan Rubin

Since arriving in Newfoundland fifteen years ago, Dan Rubin has been deeply involved in local history and heritage, as the founding chair of the Pouch Cove Heritage Society. He was lead author and editor of the book Pouch Cove: Our Home by the Sea which received the Manning award for community history in 2016. But Dan is also a groundbreaking gardener and seedsman.

At the forum, Dan will be discussing his earth sheltered greenhouse project which combines the traditional root cellar with a greenhouse that is built with modern materials. If you would like to know more about Dan's work, you can listen to our Living Heritage podcast episode with him by clicking here.
