Welcome to EVOKE! Curious about how you're involved with Hexayurt - I hadn't heard about it until Josh Judkins mentioned it in one of his missions + it sounds really resourceful/useful. Look forward to your contributions!

Make them a better stove instead.)"This simple idea has two meanings. First, it shows that the injustice of poverty and instability does not have a cookie cutter answer.
