Solar Food Dryer Workshop
On Wed 14th July we held a hands-on “Build Your Own Solar Food Dryer” workshop at the CRC here in Powell River. 10 teams or individuals built dryers out of cardboard, clear plastic and duct tape, and took them home to play with. Ours is out in the backyard drying cherries right now: it’s a bit slow, but it’s working! Next time we’ll make the food pieces smaller and not so thick, so they dry more quickly.
Enjoy the pictures…
Many thanks for David for allowing us to piggyback on the Kale Force meeting, to Kevin, David, Barry and Owen for acting as coaches and helping others build their dryers, to everyone who brought extra materials and tools for others to share, and to all our participants for coming along and building.
