12th Annual Solar Picnic at the Somerville Community Growing Center
Celebrate the sun and another year's growth in the garden. Come and
join us for a solar picnic - no gas, wood or charcoal grills, just
solar cookers using the energy of the sun!
This event is a simple, traditional pot-luck picnic. No fire, just
solar ovens/cookers. We will have a few solar cookers and some space
available for you to bring your own. If you want to learn how to build
one or see how they work, this is your golden opportunity! For more
There will also be other solar devices demonstrated (of course, feel
free to bring your own) and a good chance to see old friends and meet
new ones. A great place for a picnic, the Somerville Community Growing
Center is an urban oasis that was designed and built by local
residents and is maintained by volunteers. http://www.thegrowingcenter.org
It's a recipe for a fine midsummer's day: friends, fun, food and the
sun! Relax, chat, learn and explore the gardens. And when the
delicious aroma of solar-cooked cuisine fills the air, come to the
table and feast!
