Rocket stove workshops offered

The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service will host rocket stove workshops in Fairbanks on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.
Extension Energy Specialist Art Nash and Jim Scott, a retired electrical engineer, will lead two separate workshops from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Oct. 31 and 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 1 in the Harper Building at 4280 Geist Road.
Participants will build their own rocket stoves from cans and will receive a premade steel rocket stove as well as a do-it-yourself wood burn box. Nash said rocket stoves are useful for cooking and heating in cabins and camps. 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 $35. Register at http://bit.ly/ces-workshops. For more information, contact Carmen at 474-5854.
