Household Messages

Please keep in mind that it is best to start your fires small. If you feel uncertain about how-to-best-light-the-oven, please ask your colleagues.
Light the fire as followed:
Stack 3 woodblocks next to each other in the oven (bark down!)
Then add 3 woodblocks on top in the other direction (bark down!)
Finish with 2 more (bark down). Again the the opposite direction.
And top it of with a little bit of small wood chips and a lit ‘aanmaakblokje’

We have a brand new heating system in the greenhouse. Everybody will get a workshop upcoming weeks. If you don't know how it works yet, please don't touch it! You will hurt yourself or even worse the brand new rocket stove!

Have a wonderful week, Christmas and New Years Eve!
