How to grow your community in 3 steps: 1) Build an earth oven, 2) Host a potluck party of wood-fired foods, 3) Invite friends, family, and neighbors – it’s that simple! Our community earth oven has served us well for the last few years but it’s time for a rebuild.

Come join us for a one day natural building workshop on how to make a sand mold for the dome, stack the thermal layer around and construct the flue, then pile on the insulation before finishing with a scratch plaster coat. We’ll talk briefly about base construction, subfloor insulation and thermal layers and laying the hearth, but since we already have all that in place we won’t be building it again. We’ll also go over design strategies, the thermodynamics of earth ovens, and where to source materials. Please RSVP for this special event. Tea and Arizmendi baked goods included!
