We’re very happy to bring back Jim LaJoie for a Build Your Own Solar Cooker Workshop.

In this class you will have the opportunity to assemble your own All Season's Solar Cooker, which is known in over 125 countries from Africa, to Japan, to Europe & the Americas.

Solar cookers use the free energy from the sun and can cook full meals: meats, poultry,
vegetables, grains, breads, desserts... you name it!

You'll Learn:

  • How solar cooking works

  • How to properly assemble your solar cooker

  • The many types of pots in which to cook wonderful meals

  • Effective solar cooking techniques
