VPR Cafe: Community Oven Brings Town Together

Jan 5, 2018

Vermont is all about community and, in one Lamoille County town, that means something special and delicious. The Johnson Community Oven was fired up for its inaugural pizza-bake in October of last year, and locals have been loving it.

When VPR aired a story in 2014 about a community oven in Norwich, Vermont, it planted a seed for two long-time Johnson area residents to do the same. Their hope was to rekindle community gatherings around food.

Seven Days food contributor, Melissa Pasanen, spoke with some of the community members involved in creating the oven and securing its space for her story, "Johnson's Bread Oven Draws Community Together." Listen in as Pasanen shares highlights in this episode of The VPR Cafe.
