Build a Solar Cooker
Make a portable solar cooker with cardboard and foil with Joanne Poyourow of Environmental Changemakers. Please RSVP if you would like to make a cooker. There are only 20 places available, with a $15 materials fee. You are welcome to watch or help someone else. Written instructions will be provided so you can make your own at home.
Use Your Solar Cooker
Various seasoned solar chefs will present the art and science of cooking a meal with the sun. It is amazing how many dishes you can make using this slow cooking method.
While the food is cooking we will do some karma yoga in the garden or you can learn how to can, pickle or preserve some of the excess produce from the garden with David King, the garden master. Take home a jar of your favorite pickles. (There will be a small materials charge if you choose this option.)
Celebrate Vidya's Birthday
5:00pm til dark
The real party begins! A solar-cooked feast! Feel free to join us and bring a contribution to the vegetarian potluck meal. Music provided by David King on his powered-down guitar. No gifts! Bring a story to share about what is was like in the '50s when Vidya was a little girl. We will continue until dark... or until the candles run out.
Please RSVP 310-822-9642
