Sat Aug 13th: Cook with the Sun, an alternative cooking demo
3 pm, Lund Community Centre, Hwy 101 & Larson
If the power went out for more than a short time, energy costs became outrageous, or there was a disaster or emergency, how would you cook your food? Come to that, how can you cook your food right now in ways that use no fossil fuels or electricity, and are easy on the planet?
Join Jack Anderson for a demonstration of alternative cooking methods. We’ll be able to see solar ovens, a rocket stove, and haybox cooking all working away producing delicious food. All three “appliances” can be homemade, and there will be handouts telling you where to find information to do just that.
The Kyoto Twist Solar Cooking Society is holding its AGM at 7pm the same day and location, preceded by a potluck that you are welcome to attend.
Admission by donation.
