New Pizza Oven
Something has been growing in the garden … and it’s not a plant … it’s right there next to the shed, protected with a plastic cover and orange fencing. Week by week this spring, you’ve seen it grow. A patch of ground that was once littered with chunks of concrete is being transformed into a wood-fired brick oven. And it’s nearing completion.
Why build an oven? In short, to build community. Communal ovens have a long history of bringing people together. We hope this oven will provide lots of opportunities in the coming years to bring people together to share food and experiences.
Who is doing this? A group of community gardeners, Waters parents, and other volunteers have helped build the oven. It’s taken a village. A sincere thank you to all who have helped. Special thanks to Bill Keller, Ron Dean, and Sergio Hernandez for their hours and hours of efforts.
How did you pay for it? Jason Kraus (Waters dad, Brezicrew Partners), solicited a huge chunk of donated material from Home Depot. Crawford Material Supply very generously donated firebrick and high heat mortar. WatersToday paid for insulation and some specialty materials. Thank you Jason, Brezicrew, Home Depot, Crawford, and WatersToday!
Who can use it? We want responsible people who have been introduced to proper oven start up and shut down to lead events. The oven will be locked when not in use. That being said, the potential uses are endless: Pizza during garden nights, bread baking weekends, Boy Scout events, fundraising events, back-to-school gatherings, 8th grade spring Pizza making …
How can I help?
We have a few more weeks of construction and curing before the oven is functional. We need help with mosaic and tiling projects this summer to beautify the oven. Garden insects (monarchs, ladybugs, bumblebees, etc) will be the theme unless someone dreams up something better.
We’re seeking donations:
• High quality, dry firewood
• Oven equipment (long pizza peels, copper brush, ash shovel, oven rake, bread pans, roasting pans, oven mitts, etc.).
If you’re interested in helping, please email Rick Bolliger.
We’ve saved some sequential construction photos so you can see the progress.
