Let’s make something at our next Workshop

19 Sep

I think it would be great to make a project for self-sufficiency at our next workshop. We could get materials for 2 projects and entrants could have fun making a useful item as well as a tour of all that is happening at Asheville Aquaponics.

    Good idea…. something useful to the individual they can take home, maybe build on from there. AA can be a focal point for many self-sufficiency endeavors!

    How about making a simple “can” light…. 12vdc of course, with a single 10mm LED, a recycled can, some wire and connections…. and there’s a light!

    One way to obtain 12v power is thru a solar panel. A really inexpensive 20w solar panel is sold by Sportsmansguide.com for $$69.99. Member price is $62.99. I have purchased five of these so far and they come with an 8amp charge controller, too! If you are really serious about buying one, I know a way to shavae another $10.00 off these; just post a reply asking.
