Grow your own Pilgrims Pizza

- 24 Sep 2022
- 3:30pm - 6pm
At Rebel Farmer we know that the localising of our food is key to helping the planet and securing past and future Heritage for a regenerative food system.
Over two years of planning and development, we have been growing and harvesting heritage wheat, between lockdowns here in the protected landscape of the Kent Downs AONB.
With the help of Baker Chris Foster and the South East Grain Alliance, we have locally milled our own Millers Choice Heritage wheat. This is a diverse population of historic wheat that would have been a popular choice grown in Kent for centuries and eaten by past pilgrims before the mechanisation and hybridization we see today.
Over 100 hours of labour have been required to build our cob oven using local natural materials and salvage.
The toppings will also be predominantly from our plot using no-dig permaculture methods.
You will be able to tour the plot, learn about what we do and enjoy good social and excellent, hyper local sourdough pizza.
Starting at 3.30pm we will gather and take small parties on tours of the plot while others tuck into the first rounds of pizza. We will learn how we can grow abundance of food on a small scale while restoring our precious landscape. we will also gain lots of insight on growing wheat and creating sourdough. Meet some fellow pilgrims and some locals and enjoy the beauty of the Landscape until 6pm
£15 per person
Soft drinks will be available for sale BYOB
