This week in the Peace Corps: Brick to Bread ovens

July 23, 2018

Peace Corps Volunteer Collin traveled from his site in Talamanca, on Costa Rica’s southern Caribbean coast, all the way to the Northern Zone earlier this year to learn more about the functionality of a recently implemented Bricks to Bread oven.

He had so many positive things to say about his journey: “Visiting a sweet, hardworking, humble family in San Marcos has been a highlight in service thus far. As recipients of a Brick to Bread oven, they were showing me what it takes and providing insight on their bakery experience – in hopes that the women’s group in my community will soon be brick oven bakers themselves. We also had some fun as they showed me around their farm and pueblo.”
