This Sunday (21st) from 9am the finishing touches will be put on Veggie Village's Piadora Oven, in readiness for its launch, and an anticipated long life of shared wood-fired convivial meals.

During the working bee, the oven exterior will be sculpted with clay -- turning it into a work of art, and everyone is invited to lend a hand. At around 9.30am, Samantha Martin of Message Stick will perform an Aboriginal smoking ceremony and acknowledge the traditional owners; and Michael Butler will play his didgeridoo.

Veggie Village promotes sustainability and community participation through growing organic fruit and vegetables at Di Hurst Oval, Rufous St, Peregian Beach.

The Piadora oven is a combination pizza-tandoori oven and was brought into being at a hands on workshop in April with cob oven builder extraordinaire Bob Cameron of Rockcote.

Veggie Village President Bruce Molloy says that the Piadora oven will be a wonderful community focus, for sharing and enjoying good food is a fundamental way to connect with each other.

"After our inaugural pizza launch on July 5th, and we anticipate firing up the oven regularly so the people can come together, cook up their pizzas, bread or roasts, and enjoy our beautiful and productive community garden," said Bruce.
