Biodiesel Mixer with Maria Alovert
We shouldn’t be experiencing this kind of hot weather already – temps over 100 yesterday and again today. This unexpected heat wave is leaving local weather forecasters scratching their heads. It’s been a crazy weather year, I wonder what the rest of the year will be like?
Friday night we hosted a social gathering,”biodiesel mixer,” to welcome Maria ‘Mark’ Alovert to SoCal. We had a full house with nearly 25 in attendance – thanks to those who brought food to contribute to the potluck.
Maria gave a great “introduction to biodiesel” presentation. As with all PTF events, people milled around long after the event was finished. I had to finally “turn out the lights” a little after midnight.
Today should be fun with Maria giving a biodiesel workshop. We are expecting nearly 50 people to attend her class. Check out the latest Home Power magazine. There’s a great article written by Maria on brewing your own fuel (and a photo of our processor on page 54 )
Coming to a newsstand:
This fall there’s going to be an in-depth article written about PTF in the Natural Home & Garden magazine. The photographer should be coming out to snap photos in the next few months. The article, written by a young local writer, will take a in-depth look at PTF’s tips and techniques on growing food and living sustainably.
