WHAT:  EXCITING! This is a two-day workshop by David House author of the The Complete Biogas Handbook - visiting all the way from Oregon. BIOGAS digesters allow you to produce a burnable gas for fuel from organic materials similar to what you could put into a compost pile. Make energy from 'waste'!

Day 1

is “All About Biogas…” where you will learn how to make and use biogas, and get clear plans to build any of the four most common small-scale biogas digesters. David will also describe a new design of digester made from plastic, plywood, piping and similar low-cost materials. Everyone who attends the workshop will be given detailed plans for constructing this new digester; a $175 value. Learn about the enormous potential of food waste: David will show you about a small restaurant which throws away about three-quarters of a pick-up load of food every week. That food waste can produce 20,000 cubic feet of biogas a month!

Day 2 is “Building Biogas Digesters” where participants will build a "core" digester from a kit, as described above. Come with questions: We’ve got answers.

COST (for 2-day workshop): $215

    Om & Thank You for your prompt reply David!!! Yes, I'd love for the Sivananda Yoga Ranch to host one of your workshops, I'll talk to Mahadev, the Ranch's Manager, and see what he thinks. We're located in Woodbourne, NY (Upstate, 3hrs. from NYC). Are there any particular dates or month this year when you are available? And generally what materials do we need to have on-site for the workshop?

    I'm thrilled that on this Earth are souls like yourself who are hugely contributing to use all our natural resources to make this planet a better place to live in!!! Om & Prem (cosmic love)!!! P.S. Lovely picture of you & your beautiful, peaceful baby!!!

    Super Uma! Also wanted to ask you, what is the best way for me to get to you the poster and all the info of the July PDC by the Yelton's here at the yoga ranch so you can help us promote it, please?

    Hola Blessed Self Uma! Wooow! I really would love to attend this biogas hands-on workshop, but I don't know that I could get the funds to go & also is a very busy weekend here at the ashram. But If you're attending lovely Uma, would you be able to do a workshop here at the Yoga Ranch in the future?

      To make biogas, you use organic matter, like you would use to put in a compost pile, but the digester is a container that excludes the air and adds water. In the workshop, everyone will learn about how to build 6 different types of digesters, and be given plans and similar documents.

      There is generally abundant food waste available in most communities, for example, and if someone were to pick up 3/4 of a pickup load of food waste once a week, they could generate 20,000 cubic feet of biogas monthly. And biogas can be used for cooking, lighting, heating, and if you have enough of it, to generate electricity.

      The workshop is two days. Again, you can find details at www.completebiogas.com/w­orkshops.html

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
