After the Great Pause of 2020 we are really looking forward to getting back to in-person events. One of our favorites has been the Permies.com Appropriate Technology Course (now the Permaculture Technology Jamboree) that we teach just after the PDC every summer at Paul Wheaton Labs in beautiful Montana. Stay tuned as we share clips from previous years to give you an idea of what is coming up.
The purposes of the PTJ are:
1) Participants gain hands-on practice in a fully outfitted homestead fabrication and repair shop with tools from welders to sawmills to excavators under the instruction of experienced teachers--think of it as a shop class for homesteaders.
2) The PTJ is a serious research & development forum for DIY low-impact technologies such as Rocket Mass Heaters, Thermal and Photovoltaic Solar, and Local Natural Materials Building. Participants help us push the envelope on what is possible with appropriate technology.

October 2-10 2021 we will be back at Wheaton Labs in Montana for more rocket mass heater fun. we will have several more experiments including a followup to this one using wood heat to melt broken glass into something useful.
