We have received a grant to buy a rocket stove and solar cooker. These will be available to borrow and keep at your house until the next person needs them. Please add your name to this discussion and when you would like to borrow them. More information coming soon.

Hey Jill - great to chat at the Cedar Cottage event last weekend. The solar cooker looks interesting and hopefully we can get it out to use at Copley next year.

Jill, thank you for the Shoestring Solar Cooker! I'm looking forward to when it gets sunnier to try it out. I'll be bringing the cooker to the Main Street Village Vancouver meetings. Perhaps members can take a turn at it and try a different recipe. We could even compile a recipe book filled with dishes that can be made in the solar cooker.

The solar ovens and the rocket stoves are in. Please let me know if you would like to borrow one for an event, or for shortmterm use.
