Rocket Stoves

They are fuel efficient stoves which can be made from  a variety of substances from empty tin cans to metal piping to ceramics.  The most efficient designs make it possible to cook food with 1/3 or less of the wood normally used.  They help reduce deforestation, time spent gathering wood, and air pollution.
There is some information, diagrams, pictures, and efficiency information at the Aprovecho site:
If some of the community gardeners are interested in expanding their skills and want to grow some of their own cooking fuel, they could have fun with this.
