Building a sun-powered food dehydrator is a great alternative to an electric dehydrator. You can make your own delicious dried fruits, vegetables and herbs! http://www.ehow.com/how_2310039_build-dehydrator.html?utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=freestyle&utm_campaign=fanpage
Start gardening earlier in spring and grow later into fall. Sized to fit our 2' x 8' Elevated Cedar Raised Bed or may be used on the ground. Rot-resistant cedar base with aluminum and polycarbonate top. Built in our Vermont factory.
Cooking off the grid: Building a solar cooker. I pinned this thinking it was a good idea if i ever needed it but when I need the info i might not have access to view it. It does say off the grid as in power outage and no computer access. hmmm... I 'll pin anyways
o.k. this is a do-it-yourself solar food dehydrator from Mother earth News and SunWorks. I am planning to order one and build it to try at the first hints of late spring warmth here in Houston. I have wanted to buy an electric one...but limited kitchen space is a big problem for me! This is a bigger, greener alternative!!!! Wish me luck!
