Directions: Turn on to Don River Blvd. from Sheppard. Make your first right and into the Earl Bales Park parking lot (just to park) and then walk to the end of Don River Blvd. We'll be just inside the park on the left-hand side. On the map the letter 'A' will be where to park and the letter 'B' is where the event will be held.
TTC Information: Westbound: Travel to Sheppard Station. Go West to Don River Blvd. It's just before Bathurst Street. If there isn't a stop at Don River Blvd. then exit at Bathurst and walk east. You'll need to cross the street and get on the south side of Sheppard. See additional instructions below. Eastbound: From Sheppard Avenue travel east until the first stop after Bathurst street. The TTC stop number is 7272. See additional instructions below.
Once you've reached Don River Blvd. follow it to the very end. It's about a 20 minute walk. Ignore the park and signs for Earle Bales on your right. Keep going until you reach the entrance to West Don Parklands (past the residences). Enter the park and we'll be in the first clearing on your left.
This event is going to be all about making various breads. We’re literally going to grind grains and rice and make various types of breads from scratch. There will be some gluten-free varieties and you are encouraged to bring out your own grains if you wish to have them ground up and any other ingredients for your own bread making. There will be a few different stoves (Stovetec, Coleman) and we’ll also experiment over an open fire with a Dutch stove. We’ll also make some bannock on sticks over the fire.
A very basic bread recipe includes flour, salt sugar and water. We’ll experiment with additional ingredients like honey, raisins and seeds as well. In a scenario where yeast isn’t abundant or available then these types of breads will likely be somewhat similar to what you’ll be eating.
There will be plenty of food to go around at this event! From bannock to roti we'll experiment with various bread types.
Assist and learn the process, maintain the fire or simply show up for some fresh bread!
Fresh spring water will be available for everyone’s use. If you plan on participating you don’t need anything but if you could bring a cutting board then that would be great.
This event will be hosted by, Che, Organizer of The Ontario Prepper Survival Network.
