Be the first in your neighborhood to build and BBQ on the Estufa Finca, the
environmentally friendly, fuel efficient and carbon negative cook stove. It not
only burns fuel 4-9 times longer than a traditional fire but improves the
environment with the charcoal you make an are able to put back into the soil.
Join us Saturday, August 11, 2012 from 10am to 2pm at the former Viking Fire
Foundry 4710 Ballard Avenue for our monthly gasification stove building stove
building workshop. Build an Estufa Finca Biochar Farm Stove pioneered by Art Donnelly from Seachar.org. They have been working with these stoves for years using
them to improve health and environmental problems in the third world. The Estufs
Finca is a small, clean burning, almost smokeless stove.
These biostoves use an extremely efficient biomass gasification technology that
produces clean heat and gas. The stoves produce 92% less particulate emissions, 87%
less carbon dioxide while co-generating biochar. Biochar is a fine -grained, porous
charcoal that can be used as a soil amendment and removes carbon from the carbon
cycle that will not reach the atmosphere.
The stoves can be built with almost totally recycled materials; a recycled linseed
oil can, corrugated tin roofing and a number 10 can.
Contact Donna Lawrence at email@example.com to register.
Workshop is $75 and classes are limited to the first 25 students.
So register today and start being carbon negative.
