What about The Compost Furnace? The biomass pile is complete; the pex tubes are in the floor and in the compost pile. Yet needed is the pumping system and monitors to circulate the hot water generated by decomposition in the pile through the floor and benches of the Strawbale Studio. Due to the schedule of the plumbers willing and able to install the system, it will get connected the later part of November. During the party a Thermometer with a 4ft probe will show the temps in the pile, if all goes as planned !
We will be celebrating the ways that sustainability has been explored within our community and here at the Strawbale Studio ~ as we, together, are co-creating a groovy and more interconnected way of life Bring an idea of how regeneration has happened in some aspect of your life or community.
Contribute as you can. Support the costs of the new Compost Furnace if you wish. Those of you who have helped as volunteers, etc. during the year, just come !.
Bring some finger food and libations to share if you are able.
In any case, the Strawbale Studio will be warmed by the woodstove and pre-heated by a Torpedo Heater with 100,000 btu’s ! So we will be cozy.
