The building of the bread oven would not have been possible without the generous support from the CtK Foundation and the dozens of volunteers who assisted in the construction of the oven and wood storage shelter. How might you play a part in this fun and meaningful ministry? Here are a few of the roles you might consider:
Bakers: This is the big one. The fun one. The tasty one. If you want to be notified of upcoming opportunities to mix dough, bake bread, throw pizza dough, or taste test, please let me know! If you have a bread recipe or sourdough starter you would like to share, we'd love to have it.
Firewood Collectors and/or Splitters: We need a team of a few people who could periodically be called upon to collect orphaned firewood for future use in the oven. Do you have a pick-up truck or trailer? Do you have a wood splitter we could borrow? Let us know if you'd be open to receiving periodic requests for assistance in wood collection.
Stokers: Do you like making fires? The oven needs to be stoked for many hours before it's ready for baking. Even if you can't commit to a shift of food preparation or cooking, we need a prep team who can light a fire and/or keep that fire going. Let me know if this sounds like something you'd love to do.
Other Needs: We would love a pathway for easier access to the oven in the wintertime. Some beautification of the grounds around the oven slab could be a fun springtime project.
