Charcoal Burn [CANCELLED]Family friendly - adult with child image.

People in communities around the world depend on wood and charcoal to cook their food and heat their homes. However, forests are disappearing and sources of firewood are becoming more scarce. During this activity, we will use a simple technology developed by D-Lab to make charcoal from farm waste like corn cobs and stalks. Be sure to stay clear of the fire!
