A Communal Loaf - The Revolution Will Be Baked (Scoop)

About this project

A Communal Loaf started with a few small crops of wheat planted at the current Cultivate Chch site. The idea is to showcase the cycle of growing wheat, to a loaf of bread all from a locally grown source.

As the wheat has grown, an oven has been built as a community project at the Phillipstown Community Hub. The first firing of the oven and initial loaves were baked about 8 months after the first planting.

Simon aims to continue to collaborate with local groups as the project evolves. Stay tuned to the facebook page for upcoming events!
