Although it looks as if we are in the American Southwest, today's photo takes us to the back field of Guilford College. The above adobe oven is made from formed sand and perched on cinder blocks. It is available for people in the community to use in cooking. It was used this past Thursday for a pig-roasting event that was dubbed 'Serendipity's Meadow Fed'. The community-building event celebrated sustainable agriculture. There are plans to add another adobe oven, solar ovens, solar dehydrators, a parabolic solar oven, and more. Guilford College students Will Kimmel and Bennett Christian are responsible for designing, building, and implementing this sustainable kitchen. (See more photos here). Hats off to the Guilford College students for being socicially and environmentally conscious while they are getting a fabulous education. Surely, their parents are proud.
On Wednesday, we will feature another piece on the sustainable agriculture effort currently under way at Guilford College.
