Something visitors always ask about here at Lackan Cottage Farm is our Rocket Mass Heater, and so we are honoured to be able to welcome Leslie Jackson, co-author of the definitive book 'Rocket Mass Heaters', to the farm on the evening of Saturday July 25th to give a talk on the development of the RMH, how it works, and how to build one for yourself. We'll also be sharing some food, and the Rocket will be lit. Lots of time for discussions and Q&A too.
Leslie Jackson is a small publisher and natural builder. Leslie published Rocket Stoves to Heat Cob Buildings with Ianto Evans ten years ago. It is now called Rocket Mass Heaters, and in its Third Edition, is the manual for bulding a simple woodburning stove that efficiently burns wood, and then stores the heat it generates. Leslie lives, dances and plays music in California, USA.
The evening starts at 6pm with a talk from Leslie, we'll look at the process of building a rocket mass heater, and how it works, with ample time for questions and discussion, and a bite to eat - do bring something to contribute to the meal. Copies of the third edition of Rocket Mass Heaters will be available on the night, too.
There is no fixed charge for attending, we are just asking folk to make a small contribution on the night.
If you would like to attend, please register your interest so that we have an idea of numbers. This is sure to be a popular evening, so get your name down early.
