Tim Barker is the instructor of the Appropriate Technology Course, being held at wheaton labs, June 2017. Here is your chance to take a look at the teacher's notebook. This pdf is 49 pages long.



Tim's bio:

Tim has come a long way since his days as a diesel fitter mechanic, and now spends his time between Australia and New Zealand (and sometimes the US) as a semi professional pyromaniac and mad scientist teaching people how to burn stuff and make really cool machines and devices for low carbon living. He currently teaches appropriate technology for the Koanga institute in New Zealand and Very Edible Gardens (VEG) in Melbourne, to name a few.

He has previously been farm manager for the Permaculture research Institute of Australia, power station operator/mechanic, adventure guide and professional turtle wrestler. His rocket stove and char making powered hot water systems, ovens and cookers reflect his passion for elegant simple and durable combustion technologies. Other projects include gravity powered water pumps, solar thermal cookers and dryers, pedal powered washing machines, cargo bikes, hovercraft, wooden boats and aquaponics, to name a few. When he is not tinkering he can be found on Macleay Island off the coast of Queensland Australia, where he and his family live and are currently in the process of building a rammed earth house (with maybe a little sailing thrown in).

He is particularly well known for his safe and effective rocket hot water heating system.He brings practical, hands on experience with some truly fascinating projects to the table - this from the Koanga institute:

"He has the practical knowledge and skills to construct almost any project with limited resources."

Here is a page from the 49-page booklet:

No, it didn't go through PayPal for me.  I think something is missing.  Do the emails match up for you?  (The email for your permies.com account - is it the same as the email where you got the link from gir bot?)

Yes, it's pretty important to be logged in, using the same email account, for these special-access deals.
Computers are not that bright about intuitive things like recognizing a name.

I am on my way back to join the course, super excited to work with Tim again!
