The San Diego Solar Cooking Club was formed in summer 2007 as a way to spread the word about solar cooking in the San Diego area. We meet for cooking demonstrations, oven making workshops, potlucks, and tabling events. Our goal is to share information and to have fun. We recently participated in a cooking demonstration for the national conference of the Solar Energy Society, "Solar 2008", and tabled at the Balboa Park Earth Fair for Earth Day.
Members of our club use various types of homemade or commercially available solar cookers including: SCI's panel cooker design, basic box oven, Heaven's Flame box cooker, Sun Oven, Parvati Solar Cooker (personal favorite), Clear Dome Solar's Octagon Parabolic Cooker, large parabolic cooker made with mirrors in an old satellite dish, a member's design for a collapsible, adjustable box cooker made from corruplast, and several others. Our events can be accessed through our website, or http://Meetup.com/532, or our email list. We welcome new members with or without experience.
