Building and Using a Solar Dehydrator

  • August 25, 2014
  • 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
  • 911 S. 7th Ave. Iowa City, IA
Do you want to learn how to stock up on dried fruits and vegetables without using any electricity? Join Jon Yagla and Landon Salsberry to discuss the practical use of solar dehydrators in the Midwest.

A dehydrator that was built with all salvaged materials will be on display. You will learn what makes this simple device work well for putting away food for the winter. We will also discuss the building process and the different styles that can be built or purchased.

The event is hosted by Backyard Abundance and is free and open to everyone. 

A potluck follows the event for those who would like to stay and talk about the joys and challenges of trying to become more self-sufficient in the urban setting. Please bring a dish to share.
