The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service will host a rocket stove workshop Nov. 20 in Delta Junction
Extension Energy Specialist Art Nash will lead a workshop from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Delta Career Advancement Center, behind Delta High School.
Participants will build their own rocket stoves from cans and will receive a do-it-yourself wood burn box. Nash said rocket stoves are useful for cooking and heating in camps and emergency situations. They burn small-diameter wood. Insulated chambers concentrate the fire on the tip of the wood, resulting in an efficient burn that uses less wood and produces fewer emissions.
Eastern Alaska Forester Glen Holt will also talk about efficient wood care and handling. The cost is $15. Register at http://bit.ly/ces-workshops. For more information, contact Christy Roden at 895-4215 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
