Gasification and Rocket Stove Class

Come join us as we demonstrate two very efficient forms of producing heat and energy from wood; gasification and rocket stove technology.

These will be back-to-back classes at Ron and Debbie Skinner's ranch (near Temecula).

Rocket Stove Demonstration -- 6:00PM-7:00PM:

Troy and Jared, from Off Grid Pro, will be revealing the "Rocket Box," a portable, light-weight rocket stove system. This system is designed to fit multiple attachments for a variety of sustainable living needs:

- Pot holder cooker (standard on all rocket stoves)
- Stainless steel hot plate and grill attachment
- Hot water heater attachment (in development)
- Pizza / bread oven (in development)
- Water distiller / desalinator (in development)

Gasification Demonstration -- 7:00PM-8:00PM:

As a follow-up to the gasification workshop at Joey Delia's farm, we've now rigged together a 4kW generator that runs on wood gas. Watch the process of turning wood chunks into power in less than 3 minutes.

Gasification -- even in a semi-arid landscape -- can be a valuable tool for cooking, distilling brackish water, pressure canning, running a vehicle or generator. If gasoline becomes incredibly expensive and/or unavailable, the biomass from wood can be a survival fallback, and should be a tool in those interested in permaculture and self-reliant living.

Listen to Troy and Jared talk about gasification on PermacultureVOICES podcast:

Hope to see you there!
