The Bread Oven at Sterling College

Organized by Heidi Wilson, our Garden Manager, and built by an enthusiastic group of our students along with Bread and Puppet’s Peter Schumann, our new wood fired bread oven sits just outside the kitchen window after being built a month ago. Currently stuffed with grass, twigs, wood, etc., we are waiting for it to cure properly before the first lighting.

Although I was hesitant in my regard how to utilize the oven for our bread and bakery items in such a face paced environment, Heidi’s enthusiasm is contagious and inspiring. She created a student held position to essentially manage the bread oven each semester and I’ve had more inquiries for this position than I know what to do with. Folks are excited! Tune in later for pictures and updates.

Alas, I am woefully ignorant of all the details of how this was built, but I can tell you this: It looked like a lot of hard work from where I was standing…
