Students in The MASTERS Program refinished horno.

The MASTERS Program students refurbished the horno (adobe oven).

The MASTERS Program (TMP) students, who are in the Friday Dual Credit Controlled Environment Agriculture class are engaged in community service Friday afternoons at the culinary garden. The MASTERS Program is an Early College Charter high school based on the SFCC campus.

 Along with CEA Intern Joaquin Gomez, they are watering the orchard and re-establishing composting for the garden. They will plant a winter cover crop to rejuvenate the soil in some of the beds outside the garden boxes. On September 10, the group refinished the horno with a coat of adobe with assistance from the SFCC Adobe Construction program. They plan to test the oven before the Harvest Festival by baking bread with Chef Deaton so that the oven will be ready to make bread the day of the Harvest Festival.

Scott Voorhies, TMP teacher is overseeing the students.

Micaela Deaton, Charlie Shultz and Ondine Frauenglass were part of a class in traditional horno baking offered in July to the SFCC Culinary Garden staff and faculty by Norma Naranjo of Ohkay Owingeh
