Down in apricot city

Nathan Edwards had quite a lot of apricots. I loaned him an electric dehydrator but at 1000W it chewed through Nathan’s off-grid solar too quickly. Nathan had been thinking about building a solar dehydrator for a few years. This week he made one using this design from Mother Earth News.

“Passive solar food dehydrator…scabbed the idea from Mother Earth News…you’re doing dried apricots by the power of the sun without one of those 1500W you know coal guzzlers…I’m pretty jazzed.”

When Nathan isn’t doing permaculture he is making music. You can check out his stuff here: thumbnailgreen.com
