    I will not be attending, as I did this workshop 1.5 yrs ago, but I want to HIGHLY recommend it... you'll learn a lot, do a lot, and take home a unique, and carbon NEGATIVE!, heatng/cooking stove, which also produces an invaluable and nearly everlasting garden additive, while utilizing 'waste' material. Truly closing the loop ;) well worth the fee.

    It reminds me of a stove I made from a paint can. I used it to cook and chase mosquitoes on a 1000 mile trip down the Yukon River in 1980. It worked for food and mosquitoes even though we did not have a tent. We only needed very small wood (and a small quantity) for fuel and it worked great.
