Help Build a Sustainable Future
by Reinventing Fire

BioChar Stove-Building Workshop - Estufa Finca  Design

Saturday, February 28th 2015   

Join us in building BioChar Stoves in our local Tool Library for community and personal use

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!

BioCharBBQUsing 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, February 28th, 2015            9:30AM - 2:30PM

NE Seattle Tool Library

CookTop/AirBase 1pm-2:30pm

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 /span>> for details

Price Options (Cash or Check):

$50   = Learn how to build stove by just helping build someone else’s and/or build a tool library loan-out stove

$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 

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, 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).

Please fill out the BioChar Stove Workshop Registation Form to attend.
