drying food, Pacific Island, solar dryer
In less time than it took to develop this solar dryer and manual, the Pacific Island area has experienced several typhoons and tropical depressions followed by significant flooding and destruction of homes, properties and crops. It is in the interest of all people to become more self-reliant in times of need and to have the basic necessities available at a moment’s notice to sustain life until transportation, commerce, health care, agriculture, water, etc. can be restored to a more normal state. This work was done to enable the people of the Pacific islands to meet some of their food requirements in times of need by enabling them to preserve some of their indigenous crops for storage in times of emergency.
