Rocket Stove Workshop

Bardon Grange are running a Rocket stove building workshop in collaboration with Green Action! A hands on session, run by ex allotment coordinator Ben Milner. Participation is free. Learn about simple metal fabrication, theory of efficient combustion and the relevance of appropriate technologies.

A rocket stove is a super efficient wood burner that can burn small pieces of scrap wood to make lots of heat. They can be made from scrap metal easily found around the city. They are popular around Leeds with lots of people making them for various purposes from beer brewing to heating houses and cooking food. We have one on the allotment that was built at a previous workshop. It has been used to cook lots of food before. Unfortunately it has been left out and needs deconstructing and building again. This time we could build a shed to store it in too. 


Bardon Grange Film Night; Permaculture

Bardon Grange have started a monthly film night. Following the success of our first film night, a month has passed and it’s time for the next! Next week our film night we will be an introduction to permaculture.

Permaculture is “an innovative framework for creating sustainable ways of living … It tackles how to grow food, build houses and create communities, and minimise environmental impact at the same time. Its principles are being constantly developed and refined by people throughout the world in very different climates and cultural circumstances.” []


Come to the Common Room (ground floor of the University Union) for 8pm.

The next film night will be on Thursday 30th January, more info to follow.
