Rocket stove worshop and how to make Elberberry cough mixture

Despite the sight not properly being ready, we have been keen to move on and start workshops, today was our first offering with one session, ‘how to build a rocket stove’ running naturally into the second workshop where we made Elderberry cough mixture using the stove made in the first session. 1378123_526848504064760_773762157_nI talked through the history of how the stoves came about and then went onto their present day applications in low impact living, and their use in African villages. The Elderberry mixture that we made was just the ticket for a cooler autumn day like today and was served up hot soon it was made.

Today’s session was well attended with around ten people turning up for the sessions,  some great conversations were had developing local community food growing and getting people to work together for the common good. Our intention is continue with our outdoor workshops right the way through winter for as long as we can.
