We met at Lewis Park (Kids’ Dream park, south of town on M-40) Sunday August 3 at 3pm for a presentation on solar dehydrators, solar ovens, and an informal potluck meal (bring whatever you like, doesn’t have to be cooked by the sun!). We talked about ways of preserving the harvest and demonstrated how a simple homemade dehydrator works, as well as a solar oven. See the flyer and event photos below!
We met at Lewis Park for a picnic & discussion—where we got to know some neighbors and community families. We brought dishes to share (mostly stuff from our own gardens or the Lawton’s Farmers Market), our own tableware, plates and drinks. Families were welcome. We talked about what we’ve been doing as a group and looked toward future projects, such as a possible tool-lending library, fix-it shop, and more. Great time had by all, as usual!
