This website has been established as a resource and focal point for organizations that are interested in building a wood fired brick oven. Six years ago a large community oven was built here in the Minneapolis / St Paul area and by the end of 2015 there will be 9 community ovens here in Minnesota. This growth has come from the interest these organizations had to reach out to their communities, and provide a unique and fun way for people to interact with each other and develop new connections and friendships.
The presence of these ovens has continued to precipitate interest from organizations looking for information about how to build and manage a community oven. The organizations that have ovens here in the Minneapolis /St. Paul area have stayed connected with each other providing assistance and teaching experiences as they get their ovens up and running. We have learned from each other’s experiences and now with a website can share with other organizations that move forward and build an oven for their community.
The intent of this site is become the focal point for information about Community Ovens. Input and suggestions for the site will be solicited from those organizations that have ovens. It is also intended to to be a resource for people looking for Community Ovens in their areas and find out about up coming events scheduled at these ovens.
