Watch Growing Grains in the City – kids learn to make bread

Ian Lai, a chef and urban agriculture consultant, has been teaching children how to make bread. But what is so unusual and especially in a city, is that all the grains used to make the bread are grown in the city. Wheat, barley, spelt, flax, buckwheat, amaranth, and quinoa are grown at the Terra Nova Garden site in Richmond.

Young students learn to winnow, crush, and grind the wheat to make their own loaves of bread. The other grains are added to the loaf to create a “multigrain’ loaf.
