Homegrown Evolution: Our Rocket Stove

Low-tech is the new high-tech, and the best example of the low-tech revolution is the miraculous rocket stove–a stove that makes it possible to cook with small twigs–no logs needed! Best of all rocket stoves are easy to build. We liked the idea so much that we decided to build a permanent one just off our back deck for entertaining and as a backup to our gas stove should an emergency take out our utilities.

Interesting build. I’m still looking at building one but haven’t decided on the design yet. May build one like this to try it out.

    Interesting. I liked the greywater link too. I am thinking very heavily about doing something with the washer water, and maybe some other greywater sources at the house. It would be a win/win situation–free water for the plants, and it would keep the water out of the septic system. Going to have to do some thinking…..
