One could say that Friday 13th of August was Archie’s birthday because he got finally completed! In a communal effort, stretching from 2 pm to about 9 pm, the last and final layer of the oven was built, with different people showing up and engaging their hands and feet in puddling, shaping bricks, and layering them on top of the insulation layer. No collapsing of the dome, everything is fine, and we can now impatiently wait and look forward to the official inauguration. After first experiments with firing it, the first public use will be 4th of September at dodo’s harvest feast, taking place around Archie’s corner, with veggies harvested from dodo’s vegetable garden from the other side of Kalasatama. Here the link to the Facebook-event:


Depending on weather and other factors, the “5”- food event series will have their kick-off happening at the same place, one day later, on a hopefully beautiful sunny late summer afternoon. Keep your eyes open for hints to the event! And welcome…!
