Digger Bread Bakery
OPENeducation August 27, 2011
OPENrestaurant @ Berkeley Art Museum
In the mid-60s the Diggers in San Francisco proposed a form of ‘community anarchism’ in which they offered free food, medical care, and street performance. They also baked and gave away bread, and were rumored to have introduced whole-wheat flour into US counterculture. Steve Sullivan from Acme Bakery, James Whitehead from Fist of Flour, oven builder Quill Chase, and artist Chris Sollars bake Digger bread in cans while David Simpson and Jane Lapiner recount stories from their experience as Diggers.
Fresh honey was provided by Rob Keller's Napa Valley Bee Company.
