Learn how to build a super-efficient, clean-burning wood stove in a weekend!

Saturday, October 26, 9am-5pm and Sunday, October 27, 9am - 3pm
Gallatin Gateway (near Bozeman, location emailed upon registration)
Cost: $150 (both days, early bird, before Oct. 15); $175 (reg. price)
$90 (Saturday only, early bird); $110 (Saturday only, reg. price)

For those near the Bozeman area wanting to learn more about rocket mass heaters! This two-day workshop intensive will cover the theory behind rocket mass heaters, share basic materials needed and offer a hands-on opportunity of assembling an indoor rocket mass heater. Participants will spend the first day on theory and building the stove. On the second day, participants will work with cob, a building material made of clay, sand and straw, to build the bench that acts as the thermal mass and is connected to the stove.

This workshop will be taught by Bozeman local Anthony Smith. A mason for over 20 years, Anthony is the owner of Sustainable Masonry and has extensive experience working with block, brick, and stone. Anthony’s personal interest in sustainable living led him to years of research on energy-efficient, low-cost heating systems. He now focuses on building passive solar greenhouses and various types of energy-efficient masonry stoves.

Please sign-up in advance. To sign-up or learn more: Broken Ground, or call Kareen Erbe at 600-7881.
I suggest huckleberry pie. But the only thing on the gluten free menu is this tiny ad:
