30-minute solar cooking virtual


15 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Mar 11, 2021

I can help you get started with low-cost easy to use solar cooking methods to save natural resources (especially time, money and fuel) and cook delicious meals with the sun! I will help you identify types of solar cookers to make or buy and 1-3 easy recipes to get started with. Solar cooking is great for camping or picnics and is low-cost and easy!

I am a published author regarding solar cooking and have been solar cooking my own food for more than 2 years. In fact, I do it so much that when we move into our off-grid house this winter, we have opted to not have an oven in our tiny house, as we will be relying mostly on our solar cooker for cooking.

We will start with a brief questionnaire of what your favorite meals are, to assess which types of meals you are most likely to cook in a solar cooker on a daily basis. Then we'll assess your pricepoint ($0 - up), the amount of space you have to store a solar cooker, and your daily habits and routines and I'll help you select a solar cooker that is right for you. I'll follow-up the next month for accountability and to see if you need any additional support getting started. I will also send supplementary videos, recipes and networking groups to support you on your journey to solar cooking.

Training & Qualifications

Ii have a Permaculture Design Certificate from Toby Hemenway, author of Gaia's Garden, the bestselling international permaculture book. I have been solar cooking for over 2 years and have taught numerous workshops and written articles for local media about solar cooking.

About Erin Axelrod

I am a holistic business designer. I help companies design comprehensive goal-setting, visioning, team-building, management, marketing, sales and operations systems. Ultimately, I work to help my clie...nt companies become vehicles for personal growth and development for all their employees and places where people get up inspired to come to work day after day, with a focus on justice, resilience and repair. I have a particular focus on ecological design and land stewardship and innovative business models to repair our relationship with each other and get out of the traps of individual wealth accumulation. I love supporting my Next Economy MBA participants around themes of creating equitable food systems and reimagining retirement (see The Next Egg Initiative for more). When not working, I love to plant trees, raise backyard chickens, milk goats and connect with ecosystems. show more
