What is the Front Street community oven?

It is a warm and inviting community space for people to cook, eat, and gather together in the park. A firemaster lights the fire and heats the oven, and you arrive later in the day to cook and bake your food.

Head over to our Volunteer page to learn more about becoming a firemaster!

our guiding Values

Our values were prepared by our 8 founding board members based on what we heard in conversations with community members. Everything we do will be lead by our values.

Community

We strive to bring people together; generosity and gratitude are at the heart of what we do. We believe our web is stronger when we are connected. We aim to provide opportunities to share food and space, while slowing down and being present.

Inclusion and Diversity

We believe in wellness for all, including those who may feel under-served within our community. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend and participate at oven events. Our space is a place of kindness, respect, cooperation, and connection.

Accountability

We believe in being accountable to each other, those we serve, and those who support our efforts – from financial transparency to staying true to our values and principles. We strive for order, effectiveness, and efficiency, with clear communication and organization at all levels.

Lifelong Learning

Fun and adventure are intertwined with how we function as a community organization. We aim to provide opportunities for people of all ages to make and learn about food, so it can be incorporated into their daily lives. We value experimenting, expanding horizons, and trying new things; this can be exciting but also intimidating, so we’ve incorporated fun into all aspects of learning.

Inspiration for the Idea

This is the Park Avenue Community Oven in Dartmouth. Ours will be similar in that it’s in the park, but a different design. Our volunteer architect is working on it and we’re working with the Wolfville architectural committee to ensure it fits aesthetically with the town.

the backstory

This community oven started as a dream of Adam Barnett & Duncan Ebata, inspired by the magic of bringing people together to cook together, eat together, celebrate and share stories. Amazing volunteers and community support made the dream come true.
