Solar Cookout at Washington Park

Join Transition Charlottesville Albemarle for a Fossil Fuel Free Feast and summer party on Memorial Day! We’ll have solar cookers demonstrating how to bake outdoors using the sun’s heat, plus outdoor games and family fun.

Please bring if you can: (if not, it’s okay! please come anyway!)

  • A friend or 2 to join the fun :)
  • Your own plate, cup and utensils.
  • A potluck dish to share. See if you can creatively prepare food with little or no fossil fuels – fresh from the garden, sun-baked, wood-grilled, pickled, fermented, etc. See below for recipe ideas…
