Kitchen in the Park Project

Back in 2008 an idea to build a community oven came from the inspiration of a kiln that was in shambles at the Elora Pottery property. What to do with 2000 firebricks? A pitch to the Township of Centre Wellington backed by over 50 community members to build wood burning oven came alive. After many years of fundraising over $14,000 through the most interesting initiatives: a sewing circle which created over $4000 in what were know as 'kipp cuffs'. A benefit concert with Kevin Breit. A scrap metal collection. A Bunwich breakfast with donations of all the breakfast items by area farms. We also secured a $5000 donation from the Elora Lions Service Club.
