Heat? Bake? Cook? Hot water? .....This hands on workshop will work you through design and construction of several rocket stove "cores".

Bring scrounged materials - steel cylinders, even #10 tin cans will do, or salvaged ductile iron pipe (cast iron. Prize given to most creative salvaged part employed in construction. (We're thinking of using an old fire hydrant as a central part of a core...)

We're hoping to have a stove under construction at either the yurt (Holding) or in the farmhouse to view and join in constructing as well as having groups create a stove core.

Points To be Covered:
The workings of Heat
Whole group and small working group activities
Design and assembly of several rocket stove cores
Opportunity to participate in installation of rocket stove under construction - probably doing cob as part of that.

Who is it for?
Fire geeks, thrifty people, people who really appreciate efficiency and self sufficiency. Interested youth are encouraged to attend.

What to bring:
Food to share for meals, scrap pieces for construction (steel, fire brick, cast iron pipe etc)

Eddie Goldstein, Barbara Larson, Douglas Dolstad

Tuition Details:
The tuition is: Gift Economy at work! Contribute what you can to make more workshops possible.

We'd like to cover Eddie's travel expenses (~$200, use of the Farmstad equipment and property, and raise some money for the Farmstad's Permaculture/Compassionate Communication activities. If everyone gifted from $50 - $200 I think we'd be set. Please give only if it you are well connected to your need to do so.
