Rocket Ovens – with Tim Barker

Tim Barker was the lead teacher for the Koanga Institute’s Permaculture Design Course that I completed in February.  Tim shared his enthusiasm and knowledge with us. Originally a car mechanic by trade, Tim is a natural inventor and fix it man. I spoke to him about the Rocket Oven that he made for the Institute. It employs wood powered rocket stove technology to heat an oven in about 15 minutes. Its super efficient and lovely to look at!
