Workshops & Presentations

  • Natural Building & Ecological Design Principles – Build a Teeny Tiny House!

    A critical ecological design principle is to start small-scale and work up! Today you will have the opportunity to design and build your own house – a teeny tiny house – and learn all the natural building and ecological design principles along the way. We will briefly discuss different natural building techniques, passive solar design, living roofs, rainwater catchment, and more, all the while getting our hands dirty in this interactive workshop!

  • Appropriate Cooking Technology – The Integrated Cooking Method

    The integrated cooking method is based off three elements – biomass fuel-efficient rocket stoves, solar cooking, and heat-retention haybasket cookers. We will discuss how the integrated cooking method can be used to optimize fuel-efficient cooking; decrease demand on natural resources; and provide pasteurized water and hot food during the long emergency. We will also go over simple steps of how to build these three appropriate cooking technologies and cook a small snack to demonstrate their use.
