Rocket Stove Workshop 2021

Back when the pandemic was young I had planned to lead a rocket stove workshop at Symbiosis Ranch. Things being what they were it didn’t end up happening.

Fortunately, the workshop is back on the schedule, for the weekend of September 18th & 19th. We’ll be putting a batch box rocket stove mass heater in the Aircrete Dome. It will be held 9 am – 5 pm each day, is $198, limited to 15 students, with free camping on site, and will include a ranch dinner on Saturday night. Additional ranch operated accommodations are available onsite or in town. You can register by calling (989) 317-4787. https://www.symbiosisranch.com/ranch-sponsored-courses

We’ll be using the Peterburg Batch Box Dimensions to make our stove. For the small space of the dome I’m modeling it on “the cyclone” built in 2017 at Wheaton Labs. Here are some videos:
