2Up-Down/Homebaked: Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign

Date uploaded: December 10, 2012

Over the last 2 and half years, artist Jeanne van Heeswijk, commissioned by Liverpool Biennial, has been working with people from Anfield and Breckfield to rethink the future of their neighbourhood. The 2Up-2Down team are a group of Anfield residents have set up the Homebaked Community Land Trust and bakery co-operative, refurbished and re-opened their old bakery and now they need your support to start baking on site again!

They have set up a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise enough money for a new oven. Within 60 days they need to reach their goal of £13,000. This is a new challenge and they are asking for your help to achieve it. So please contribute what ever you can, because what is a Bakery without an oven? Click here to contribute now!

Homebaked will be much more than just a business. It will be a meeting place for people to come and learn about baking and good food. They will offer community baking sessions, apprenticeships and the use of the kitchen for micro-businesses. Homebaked will house a production and training kitchen with an apprenticeship programme, a traditional bakery shop front, a couple of tables to sit and have a coffee with your cake, and a hatch to serve food straight onto the street on match days. The bakery has already become a hub again, hosting board and community meetings, talks on a variety of topics from bread making to civic economy and its a place to meet for a cup of tea and a chat or even a bit of a singalong.
