LOVEns: Ovens Without Borders

LOVEns is a free, global online platform uniting “Ovens without Borders”: both traditional oven builders and the heritage of their knowledge, as well as places with community ovens (in parks, traditional neighborhoods, etc.), or bakeries with old wood-fired ovens around the world. The platform connects to our two other related global platforms: and, the second specifically uniting bakeries social enterprises that employ and help people from disadvantaged groups.

The vision, mission and hope is to find, preserve, and promote various traditions of wood-fired ovens construction and baking from across cultures, and to help revive traditional ovens or construct new community ovens around the world and to build community around them, in particular in marginalized areas.
