work, she principally conducted workshops for new cooks; more recently she has
 
concentrated on training others to be the trainers of new solar cooks. A detailed outline
 
for a 5-day training course for trainers is available for leaders of scout groups and other
 
organizations. More recently, Ms.Pulliam (sometimes in concert with [[Rotary International | Rotary]] activities) has been promoting what is known as the "[[Integrated Cooking Method]]". The approach teaches households how to create a complete cooking system, using a fuel-efficient stove (for times of rain or darkness), a haybox or retained heat cooker, and a solar cooker. Ms. Pulliam is an energetic trainer whose training is always accompanied by songs and exercises, in good Scout tradition.
