Susan and I took Heaven's Flame down to Santa Cruz yesterday, Aug. 29th. The "Transitions" clubs in the Bay Area are preparing leaders to help people transition to a "post oil" economy when the need arises. I'm just glad they're excited about solar cooking as one of their "tricks of the trade" for an easy transition. I hope they all start to solar cook long before we run out of oil, just because it's good clean cooking fun. The original event flier was posted at: transitions.org should any readers wish to join them at future events. Here are some pictures from the event.
We were so excited to meet Michael Weaver who is the Chelsea Green Publishing sales rep who supplies Common Ground Garden Supply with good environmental books for our customers. Michael had built a beautiful solar food drier. He was carefully tending sun dried tomatoes. He had to keep a precise temperature (I recall he said 120 degrees to prevent them from becoming black.) He also used a Global Sun Oven to produce a really nice gluten-free pizza that smelled great.
Thank you again Don for some great information on Solar Cooking in Action at the community level.
We would love it if everyone and anyone who has any interest in solar cooking would share the "happenings" from their own area's and community's solar cooking events.
