Sweet wheat

Thanks to the Environmental Youth Alliance staff for hosting this fall frolic.

The wood fired oven is made from a reclaimed oil drum. Pizzas bake in just a few minutes.

Ta-da! Glorious whole grain treat.

Dough from freshly milled flour is formed into yummy creations.

The harvest celebration was a time for growers to pool their Vancouver grown grains. Wheat was processed and milled and presto! Wood fired pizzas were coming out of the oven faster then we could eat them. Thanks to everyone who pitched in and made this event such fun.

Folks pitch in to separate the grains from the wheat plant.

Yes, there are machines that do this. Doing it by hand brings new appreciation!
