Capture solar energy and use it to cook almost anything! Making your own low-tech, low-cost solar oven is an accessible project you can do at home with common household materials like cardboard and duct tape. Then you can collect solar heat to make dishes like bread, stew, casserole, roasted meats & vegetables, cakes, cookies & pies.
On Monday, May 13, the Transition Cville Skill Share Crew will provide instructions and some of the tools & materials for you to build your own simple solar oven. Please bring if you can: a cardboard box (intact), 2 or more large pieces of cardboard, a utility knife, a tape measure, a paint brush (1-2″ wide).
WHEN: Monday, May 13, 7-8:30pm
WHERE: The Bridge PAI, 209 Monticello Rd.
