For more than a decade, Bart Orlando has volunteered at Humboldt State University's Campus Center for Appropriate Technology. He helps students build and utilize human-powered machines. He is also a long-time solar cook who frequently demonstrates solar cooking outside the Arcata Co-op in Arcata, California. He often shares the solar-cooked food with homeless people in the area. Orlando says his homemade parabolic solar cooker can cook over 100 servings of rice on a good day. [Excerpted from a September 2006 Eureka Reporter story.]
