Why spend money on an electric food dehydrator? In previous workshops, Barb Ford has touched on the basics of food drying using solar, and in this workshop, you will learn how to make one yourself out of a cardboard box (or more durable, readily available material) and there will be no electricity bills – this one works on power directly from the sun.
Barb will explain all about solar food drying, demonstrate a couple of designs, then it will be hands-on to make a small working model.
There is a full program of FREE workshops happening at the Gardens every second Saturday, as part of our Community Partnership under the ‘Living Smart’ Programme with Sunshine Coast Council.
All workshops commence at 9.30 am (unless otherwise indicated) and go for approx 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
These FREE workshops are open to everyone in the community, not just members and volunteers at the Gardens and there is no need to book a place - unless otherwise indicated for that particular workshop.
It is advisable to bring along a notepad and pen for taking notes, as well as a hat, sunscreen and your water bottle.
For more information or to be included on our mail-out list for workshop reminders, please contact us at -
