Workshops for the construction of solar cookers and ovens and demonstrations of solar cooking

 September 23rd – Parco Scarpellini in Muraglia in Pesaro – “AggregAzione Sostenibile” Project – Vegan Solar Lunch!

On Saturday the 23rd, we realized a vegan solar lunch in Parco Scarpellini, situated at the Distict 7 Montegranaro – Muraglia of the Municipality of Pesaro. The lunch was realized thanks to the utilization of 10 Copenhagen solar panels, together with the support of gas and electric cooking, due to the fact that we had to prepare a high quantity of food and that we hadn’t a sufficient number of volunteers in order to prepare them only with solar cooking. Next time we will try to cook all with solar ovens and cookers! Here on the right, you can see the flyer of the initiative and also some photos, taken from the preparation of the rice for the rice salad, which was cooked the they before the lunch, that is to say Friday the 22rd. Unforrtunately, on Saturday we forgot to make photos, please excuse us! Anyway, the experience demonstrated that it is possibile to cook with the Copenhagen solar panel cookers also in September, provided that there is sun and, in case the cookers are made of less efficient materials, provided that we take care to reduce the quantity of food that we cook.

The lunch has been patronised by the District 7 and it has been supported by the nonprofit organisation Festa dei Popoli and by the juvenile project AggregAzione Sostenibile, whose lead partner is the nonprofit organisation Eco-Fatto, located in Sant’Ippolito.

On 23rd of July, we organized a workshop for the self-construction of Copenhagen Solar Cooker Light panel cooker, dedicated both to the children and adults going to the Bahia del Sol beach in Pesaro. After the workshop, we prepared about 1 kg of rice salad and we gave it to taste to some of the participants and also to some of the workers at the beach!

Our stand to promote solar cooking

During the Fair, our association prepared a tiny stand, thanks to which we managed to organize a construction laboratory for Copenhagen Solar Cooker Light panel cooker and a demonstration of solar cooking using two Heaven’s Flame and two Copenhagens.

The Laboratory for the Self Construction of Copenhagen Solar Cookers

With the youngsters and adults interested to the activities, we built Copenhagen Solar Cooker Light panel cookers using vegetal paper, vinyl glue, aluminum, hemp twines and clothespins. The experience was really great.In three days we built 8 Copenhagens and we donate other two to the participants !

The Solar Cooking Demonstration

With our 4 solar ovens, 2 Heavens’ Flame and 2 Copenhagens, we cooked an Indian dish made of mixed vegetables and spices and we also cooked rice saad and warmed “piadina”. We managed to cook a good quantity of food and to give it to taste to the organizers of the Fair and to the participants !

 EcoFuturo Festival 2016 – Festival of the Ecotechnologies and of Self-construction
We have been invited for the first time to participate at EcoFuturo, the Festival of ecotechnologies and self construction, which has reached its third edition this year. This year the Festival was held in EcoArea, a new building following bioarchitecture principles and guidelines which is located in Cerasolo (Rimini). As per the previous editions of the Festival, there were numerous events dedicated to the ecotechnologies and self-construction, you can find more information at this link! CND Fenile and us from Sentinelle dell’Energia were invited for a demonstration of solar cooking. The premises were not good, since the weather forecast was that of a cloudy day, moreover, we had never had a public demonstration of solar cooking yet. Nonetheless, we didn’t loss faith and we tried our best to get good results. and good results came: the weather was good enough and we managed to cook rice salad for about 20 people!

The laboratory for the self-construction of solar box ovens

October 2014 – August 2015. Thanks to the collaboration with Legambiente Marche and Circolo il Ragusello from Pesaro, we managed to activate a trainship for our associate Francesco, with the aim to develop models of solar ovens made from cheap and recovered materials. Moreover, thanks to a collaboration with EcoFatto association of Sant’Ippolito, we managed to participate at the Regional project CreAbili. L’officina del fai da te, thanks to which we organized a laboratory for the self-construction of solar box ovens.
