On Tuesday, June 4 join Medomak Valley High School and the Waldoboro Public Library for “breaducation” where local bread, local seeds, and local pizza will be celebrated.

At 4:30 p.m., pizza will be served, baked in the high school’s new wood-fired earth oven. Suggested donation for pizza is $2 per slice, with funds going to support the Heirloom Seed Project Teen Agricultural Crew.

At 5:30 p.m., head to the Waldoboro Public Library to hear Ellen Mallory of the University of Maine speak about the revival of locally-grown wheat and grains in the Northeast. Mallory’s lecture will be followed by a panel of the entrepeneurs behind Harvest Moon Pizza (Bremen), The Good Shepherd’s Farm (Bremen), The Village Bakery & Cafe (Waldoboro), and Morgan’s Mills (Union).

On April 26-28, and throughout the month of May, the Medomak Valley High School Heirloom Seed Project enlisted Horticulture I, Horticulture II, and Ceramics students to construct an earthen oven on school grounds. It is located on a student-built patio near the Living History Arboretum, where raised beds are growing wheat and herbs. The project was generously supported by a grant from the Maine Commission for Community Service in celebration of Global Youth Service Day.
