Hey Michiganders, Ernie and Erica are coming to our georgous State to present a Rocket Mass Heater Extravaganza!

The dates are slated for August 17,18,19 and will be presented in the Central L.P. (very near Sleepy Hollow State Park & Campground).
We would love to see all of our Michigan Permies attend so I intend to keep the cost to attend as affordable as possible. I have a few kinks to work-out but I will post more details soon. Please let me know if you're interested in attending (it will help me estimate expenses).

Curious if any Michigan locals have explored permitting options for Rocket mass heaters in homes?

Any information is appreciated.

We are going to investigate and learn about RMH through the building an outdoor cooking area. There is, also, a possibility that we will be able to visit a scrap yard where Erica and Ernie will illustrate what to qualities to look for when choosing elements for use in RHMs.



We have room for camping on our property. There is room for a few trailers (no hook-ups). Otherwise, there is plenty of space for tents. If you would like something more private or with shower facilities, Sleepy Hollow State Park is within 10 miles of our location. They have a fantastic campground, beach and trails.



Our Clinic will be held on August 17,18,19.

Tuition: $225 for the entire weekend. Military discount does apply. Also, if financing is a problem, there is an opportunity for working something out (on a case by case basis). Either in-trade for items needed for the workshop or services to the clinic participants. We are of the philosophy that we would rather have people learning than waiting for the opportunity!

Hi Suzanne

Is there room at the rocket stove workshop in Sleepy Hollow?

Thanks,

Bruce

I have space available if anyone is interested in coming out to learn with Erica and Ernie. The workshop location is in Ovid, Michigan. A good central spot in a quiet farming community.

We had a wonderful time with the RMH Clinic this past weekend. For those of you who are still considering attending a clinic with Ernie and Erica, it is well worth the investment in both time and money. There will be another opportunity to join them this weekend in the Detroit area. If you can, attendance is highly recommended.

I would have come but this time of year we are busy with food production and back to school. Maybe someone will have a fall show of sorts.

The Wisner's will be heading back through the Michigan area sometime in October. If enough people, in the area (Great Lakes Region) are interested and committed to attending a workshop that would be the time. I do not think they will be back this way for another year or two after that. If this is something people would like to pursue, there is a chance we could work to host something at our Cabin in the Mecosta County Area (M66 between M20 and M10).
