It's still looking like winter outside so come learn how to build a rocket mass heater - a simple, clean and efficient way of heating a home or greenhouse!
Rocket Mass Heater Workshop
Saturday, March 16, 9am-5pm
Springhill Road, Bozeman (location and directions emailed upon registration)
Cost: $90 (early bird until March 6), $110 (after March 6)
This hands-on workshop intensive will cover the basic materials needed and assembly of two different rocket mass heaters. A rocket mass heater is an innovative and efficient space heating system developed from the rocket stove, a type of hyper-efficient wood-burning stove. Workshop participants will build a temporary stove used to heat a tent and a permanent stove in a greenhouse. Aside from heating the greenhouse, this heater will have a system of ducts, which will run under a rooting bed to help facilitate germination and growth of seedlings.
This workshop will be taught by Bozeman local Anthony Smith. A mason for over 20 years, Anthony has been involved in a range of projects from residential to commercial and has extensive experience working with block, brick, and stone. Anthony’s personal interest in sustainable living led him to years of research on energy-efficient, low-cost heating systems.
