We built a cob oven!
Over a weekend full of sun and mud, a boisterous group of volunteers and “natural build” enthusiasts gathered at Forest Farm Peace Garden to build a “cob oven” made from clay , sand and straw. The result is a highly efficient and sustainably designed wood-fired oven.

We had lots of fun, and we’re looking forward to firing up the oven at World Music Day to make some delicious pizza!
