Hello,

about 10 month ago I first heard of "Rocket-stoves" from a danish friend. But it was too far away from my fomer thinking about fire. Now I got as christmas gift the book about rocket stoves from another friend. And I'm exited!
I'm realy surprised that here in germany this way of heating is nearly unknown. I'm now in permaculture since 26 years, have made the diploma lots of years ago, developing my site since 20 years, wrote a book (which is now in the 4.th edition) about living architecture, ... but have not known about rocket stoves all the years...

So I found to this forum.
Sorry about my english. I do my best.

Konstantin, welcome. Your english is very good. Do you have a link to your book? Or could you tell us more about it?
My family came to America from Flensberg Germany in 1776.

Hi Wyomiles,

thanks for replay. The books is called "Naturbauten". I do sell this book in my webshop a thttp://www.waldgartendorf.de. Usually only to customers in Germany. If somebody from somewhere else wants the book its may be better to search other distributors. If not possible I could find a way to send it worldwide.

The content is about who to use living trees to plant and grow homes and structures. I also write about Alex Erlandson and his Circus Trees, growing in USA. I do also write about my reseach what has been made in the past. Because there are several old books with drawings and beautifull descriptions of living houses.

I attach some pictures out of the book.

Cool, I heard about a college professor ,years ago, who did experiments on how much damage trees could survive. He did a lot of "grafting" that looked like some of the pictures in your book.

Is your book available in english?

What does "Middle of Germany" mean, if I may ask? Hannover? Fulda? I live in the south west, in northern BW.

Hi Chad,

I live 15 km East from the city of Bebra. That is between Fulda and Kassel.

Do you know of any permaculture groups in Germany? Ecovillages, intentional communities, etc? Also, what have your experiences been practicing Permaculture in Germany? Any pitfalls or things to watch out for legally?
