Johan Stapelberg – Master Sourdough Baker

“I have been involved in the baking sector and many baking projects for 45 years and decided to apply my mind and came up with the idea to erect wood fired ovens, also better known as Masonry ovens at strategic points within the various communities where there is hunger and hardship.

But, to make this project sustainable and give it substance, I shared my idea of community ovens with Leon de Bruin and the idea was born to approach the Reformed Church in Pretoria which they took an immediate interest in. It must be stated from the outset that the vision and reach of this Communal Oven project is to be implemented in all churches and communities across South Africa and adjacent countries.”
