Community Oven in Colorado
Here in Carbondale, Colorado, we will soon be building a community wood-fired bread oven, a noncommercial place for bread makers to bake together. We feel that it is a good alternative to having twenty or thirty individuals bake at home in their individual kitchens, especially in this town, where community spirit is very strong and where many people grow their own food. We would be interested in hearing from any of you who have experience with the community aspect of baking. Do you have any suggestions for us? Any pictures of your own community ovens, or ones located in other parts of the world? Public response to the idea has been overwhelmingly positive, and we can hardly wait to begin.
