Quelab, in association with ABQ Old School, would like to announce a class taking place this weekend and next in the Shipyard (Workshop), a how-to and hands-on class on building a Rocket Mass heater. This two part class on 22 and 29 March, from 9a-12p each day, will teach the design and construction of a rocket mass heater.
Rocket mass heaters have gained a considerable following from permaculture practitioners, homesteaders, and individuals wishing to build their own fireplace from locally sourced materials and avoid contributing to the fossil fuel and fracking industry. A rocket mass heater is a modification of a rocket stove that passes the flue gas through a large thermal bench. The term rocket in the name comes from the fact that it sounds like a rocket! It can be used to heat homes, greenhouses, and other places needing a warm touch.
Go visit ABQ Old School to learn more about the class and register to attend.
See you on Saturday!
