Moor Street Community Garden




Thanks to Ellen Paul,  Mary Dunn and many others, we officially opened the Moor Street Community Garden in Waterville, Maine with brick oven pizza for all. The oven shown was put together with 100 red bricks and some angle iron. It took 30 minutes to assemble.

What a wonderful day and what wonderful pictures! Watching kids watering their gardens, picking carrots, and eating REAL pizza! Priceless! That's what it's all about, isn't it? Thanks Stu!

Thanks for the great class at the Kneading Conference! I was at the Bread Fair on Saturday and answered a lot of questions about the oven we made (it was still there).

This dry stack oven looks great. Where can you get angle irons? Is the oven 7 bricks wide and four bricks deep? Any venting in the back? Thanks for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm!

The portable, dry stack oven is seven bricks wide and four bricks deep. You can buy the angle iron at Home Depot. All the venting is in front. You can place a baked pizza on top to keep it hot and to crisp the bottom. It takes about 96 bricks to construct, and you can do it in about 20 minutes.
