“Burn it Right” workshop

Sunday, Dec. 10, 3 – 4:30pm

SSI Public Library, free

Salt Spring Fire-Rescue and the Salt Spring Island Conservancy are co-sponsoring a timely public workshop,  “Burn It Right” on Sunday Dec. 10th from 3 to 4:30 pm at the Library.  This free event will outline best practices for using woodstoves and fireplaces, with the aim of increasing efficiency and heat provided, while reducing creosote build-up and air pollution.  Learn which kinds of wood are the best (and worst) to burn, how to build your fire, when and how to add more wood, and other tips to use wood-heat more cleanly, effectively and safely.
