Oh my god I really want a solar dehydrator and putting it on your roof is a brilliant idea. We might make one when my husband gets back from overseas a few weeks time. I would love to see your setup.
Well, I thought I'd just give you a link to my post about the dehydrator... but it turns out I don't actually have one. That is, the one that features my dehydrator is about a slightly different topic. But take a look: https://steemit.com/permaculture/@stortebeker/permaculture-principles-obrain-a-yield-and-everything-gardens In the meantime I'll make a post specifically about my dehydrator. :-)
I knew there was more than that. There had to be, since I felt like I've exhausted all my urban permie setup topics. So here's another one where my dehydrator is featured, and of course it is tied in to another broader topic: https://steemit.com/permaculture/@stortebeker/the-power-of-convection-from-boiling-water-to-drying-fruit
