Rocket stove workshop offered Dec. 11

Debbie Carter

The University of Alaska Fairbanks Cooperative Extension Service will host a rocket stove workshop Dec. 11 at its district office in Fairbanks.

Extension energy specialist Art Nash will offer the workshop from 6 to 8 p.m. at 724 27th Ave., in the Fairbanks Community Food Bank building.

Participants will build their own rocket stoves from cans and will receive a do-it-yourself wood burn box. Rocket stoves burn small-diameter wood and wood pellets efficiently and are useful for cooking and heating in camps and emergency situations. Eastern Alaska forester Glen Holt will also talk about efficient wood care and handling.

The cost is $15. Register at For more information, contact Carmen at 474-5854.
