Help Build a Sustainable Future
by Reinventing Fire
BioChar Stove-Building Workshop - Estufa Finca Design
Saturday, August 22nd 2015
Join us in building BioChar Stoves in our local Tool Library for a Picardo Farm P-Patch
This biochar stove works great as an efficient fire pit or freestanding carbon-negative BBQ in your backyard WHILE also creating biochar for your garden!
Using wood waste as fuel, this clean-burning stove is great to have as a firepit grill and to use for emergency preparedness.
At the same time, this stove also creates biochar for long-term soil improvement, locks away carbon for thousands of years, and other environmental gains.
Saturday, August 22nd, 2015 9:30AM - 2:30PM
Basic Stove 9:30am-12:30pm
We’ll build the basic Stove Base in the morning,
In the afternoon we’ll build the CookTop and Air Base add-on
that convert the basic stove into a BBQ grill.
Class size will be limited to 8 basic stoves and/or cooktops
Email/RSVP BioCharStoveBuilder@gmail.com for details
Price Options (Cash or Check):
$50 = Learn how to build stove by just helping build someone else’s and/or build a stove for P-Patch placement.
$125 = Build & take home your own Base Stove
$50 = Build & take home your additional CookTop / Air Base, to convert basic stove into a BBQ grill
A portion of the proceeds will go for tool library operations, and to SeaChar.org
for their Estufa Finca Stove design 'pyroneered' by Art Donnelly.
In addition to building or taking home a stove, you’ll learn a little about how to make
and use biochar to improve soil quality while decreasing nutrient use,
providing a home for beneficial soil organisms,
and reducing runoff into our waterways.
We hope to provide a mid-sized biochar stove for community use, organize a biochar stove creation tool set, promote tool libraries (and community gardens), share know-how regarding their creation and use, and other sustainable practices.
Bring work gloves (if you have them), since there will be many sharp edges!
Goggles/safety glasses required (provided for teens).
