The City of Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department invites outdoor enthusiasts of all ages to a free solar cooking class at Los Flores Ranch Park, 6271 Dominion Road. Learn introductory cooking techniques using solar energy on Saturday, September 18th from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required at


During class, participants can enjoy some food samples cooked on solar ovens provided by the instructor. Those in attendance will also receive a printed guide on how to make a personal solar oven at home.


Solar cooking benefits the environment by using clean, renewable, and readily available solar energy as fuel preserves natural resources by not requiring the use of wood or other biomass fuels to cook and it helps avoid dangerous emissions which pollute local environments that contribute to climate change.
