Eva Edleson, natural builder extraordinaire and co-author of Build Your Own Barrel Oven, will lead this weekend workshop at Jeans Urban Forest Farm. Participants will gain the theoretical and technical skill to build this advanced oven, including masonry work and plaster finishing. A lunch of rice, beans and farm greens will be provided each day and a celebratory cob oven pizza party will end the 2nd day (along with some barrel oven baking if it can be used b then!)

The barrel oven is a step closer to conventional oven from the popular cob oven design in that the cooking space heats more evenly and is not exposed to the smoke of the fire. Used by itself, this oven can meet most baking needs. Used in conjunction with a cob oven, there's not much that you can't bake!

Jeans Farm, operated by the 501(c)3 non-profit Learning Gardens Institute and co-managed with Mother Earth School, serves youth and children with on-site educational programs and field trips. This barrel oven build is the 3rd of five structures being built as part of the farm's outdoor kitchen renovation project. All workshop proceeds support LGI's completion of the kitchen. Also, don't forget to come and enjoy the farm at the annual Farm to Fork dinner benefit, where the new barrel oven will be put to use! Take a look at our menu HERE! Workshop participants will be offered admission to this $40 event free (and your support in food prep and serving would be great too!)

    It was fantastic. Eva was a courteous and informative teacher. I feel prepared to go and build my own Barrel Oven. And, Eva was gracious enough to open an invitation to all of us to stay in contact with her through our building projects for help and support along the way.

    Eva is an excellent teacher. She's listens and observes well, and she absolutely knows her subject matter. Thank you!

    This is the 2nd. class that Eva has taught, that I have attended. Both were great. A wealth of information, given in a fun manner. Prepare to get your hands dirty. These classes are mostly hands on. By the time you are done you will know how to proceed to build your own Barrel Oven. Cannot recommend Eva and her classes more highly.

    Hi everybody! Check your email for the logistics letter I sent you today. Gmail sorts your email now so you likely need to look under the "social" tab for this email. In short, yes, we'll provide a lunch. If you can't find the email, notify me at [masked] ASAP as the access info is very specific. Thanks!

    Hi all, I'm planning on bringing some seeds to exchange to this event. Just something I tend to do... I am particularly interested in Eleagnus spp. (Goumi and autumn Olive) and Honey Locust (Gleditsia triacanthos). If someone has some fruit/seed they'ed like to trade, that would be exciting to me. I'll have an assortment of perennial nitrogen fixing support trees/shrubs, some penalized vegetables (tree kale, collards, spinach, arugala...) multiheaded sunflowers, and a handful of other things we've been breeding on the land. Just thought I'd put it our there for anyone who is interested.... looking forward to the event!

    Hi all, We are arriving from Tacoma and just got the trip confirmed with my friend. I'm in the process of making lodging arrangements through airbnb. If anyone has suggestions, let us know. Thank you! We are looking forward to it.

    wondering if there is potential for overnight camping at Jean's farm. Enough space to set up a pup-tent?

    Hi, I'm a permaculture teacher and practitioner at the Windward Community (www.windward.org). We're looking to do more building with Cob, and create a few outdoor kitchen spaces for the community. I's super excited about this course! I encourage anyone looking at attending to look at Eva and Max's website: www.firespeaking.com It has a lot of background info on the ovens.
