Bread Baking Workshop - Mar 26

Please join us on Thursday March 26 for a hands-on Bread Baking Workshop given by Fr. Peter, the local "Breadbaker par Excellence."

Baking bread is one of the most basic skills of our civilization. Yet many of us don't know how to do it! Learn how to knead a basic bread. You'll get a recipe and take home a small sample.

The bread baking workshop is part of our ongoing series of "reskilling" classes. In the past 50 or so years of energy surplus, we have eagerly outsourced many of the basic skills of everyday living. As we enter the post-petroleum age, we learn we will no longer be able to do this for a variety of reasons which range from economic constraints to transportation constraints under peak oil. We discover that we must quickly reacquire skills that our grandparents and great grandparents knew so well.

Bring an apron, or come dressed to work with flour. $5 materials fee, although no one will be turned away for lack of funds. We will be collecting canned goods for needy local families via LAX Food Pantry.

Since 3/26 is a harvest Thursday, Harvest Westchester will also be accepting backyard fruit. You may bring extra fruit from your home trees to share with others and donate (see details at ).
