The Public Is Invited To Attend Our Grain To Oven Events At The Gardens Of S.E. NC In June 2023
The Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina is a non-profit botanical garden dedicated to improving lives, cultivating inspiration, offering a variety of experiences, and generating income for the community.
Have you ever made pizza from scratch? At Grain to Oven, you will not only make a delicious pizza, but harvest your own grain, mill it into flour, and make your own dough! Together, we have big plans for farm to oven experiences in Summer 2023! Join us for a tasty, fun, and educational experience you’ll never forget!
The Gardens of Southeastern North Carolina have planted over 3 acres of four different types of grain - wheat, barley, oats, and rye! During a Grain to Oven event, you will harvest, thresh, winnow and grind the grain into flour. Finally, with your freshly made flour, you will make a delicious pizza using provided toppings in our brick-fired oven! We want you to experience the satisfaction of creating healthy, nutrient rich foods right from the field. This is a great event for the whole family! All food toppings will be provided, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase during the event. Grain to Oven is open to adults and children of all ages! Please note, part of the experience is venturing out into the grain fields; please dress accordingly.
