Recent Sourdough Workshop

Participants learned the process of making sourdough bread at Moss Vale Community Garden recently.   Considering that many of the loaves got drenched with water when the irrigation inadvertently came on in the hothouse (oops!) whilst they were in there proving/raising, everyone still got to go home with a loaf baked in our pizza oven.

Thank you to all of our good-natured participants.  It was an enjoyable day.
