Spend the day in our beautiful community garden learning how to construct earth ovens for outdoor, wood-fired cooking. The course is very hands-on and you’ll gain the skills you need to build your own earth oven at home.

Building earth ovens is as simple as making a loaf of bread – you just need five ingredients, mud, sand, straw, water, and of course, time. You’ll not only build an earth oven in a day, but you’ll get to see the existing earth oven at Martineau in action too. Lizzy is a great teacher with a wealth of experience, having built dozens of earth ovens for schools, community projects, and in people’s homes.

This course is delivered by Earth Oven artist Lizzy Bean at Martineau Gardens . It is not fully catered, refreshments and a few treats from the earth oven will be provided but please bring a packed lunch along to sustain you as it’s hungry work building an oven!

You will need to bring wellies for mixing cob and gardening/builders gloves or Marigold’s.

The course runs from 10am – 4pm.
