Catching some rays!

Green Sangha’s 2nd annual Solar Cooking demonstration & food offering, Sunday, Sep 2, 12-4 pm, 1257 Main St, Redwood City

Did you know that you can boil water, steam vegetables, and bake bread without fossil fuels?

  • See demonstrations of portable solar cookers, a solar water pasteurizer, and heat-retention cooking devices.
  •  Learn solar cooking’s many benefits for individuals and the environment, and see how easy it is.
  • Sample cookies, stew, and other solar-cooked foods.
  • Get instructions for making your own solar cooking device and tips on how to save money, water and energy in cooking.


Noon to 1 pm, we will set up cookers to preheat, then have a short meditation and discussion about a Green Sangha Peninsula Chapter.  If you have a solar cooker and/or are interested in Green Sangha, please arrive at noon.
1-4 pm, we will have our demo & food sharing — in the middle of the “Really, Really Free Market,” a monthly “Community Garage Sale” without price tags, where people bring their unused items and discarded-but-still-healthy fruits and vegetables to offer to anyone who wants them.  The Market happens in a mini-park near the end of Beech Street, from 1-5pm, and is organized by members of Occupy Redwood City as a means to promote local self-sufficiency and build stronger communities.  “If we share our resources we won’t need to buy as many new ones.  This uses fewer of the Earth’s resources, and fewer of our working hours, leaving us more time and money for things we enjoy!”

Sunlight – our ultimate renewable source of energy – free forever!
