WOONSOCKET, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island city is getting a new communal resource - a wood-fired bread oven available for public use.

The oven located in Woonsocket was made possible by a grant from the Rhode Island Foundation. The Call (https://bit.ly/2wbPUDA ) reports that the oven is another step in Woonsocket’s local economy encouraging food-focused entrepreneurship.

Joseph Garlick, director of NeighborWorks Blackstone River Valley, says the idea was inspired by outdoor bread ovens that once dotted the countryside of Quebec, Canada. It’s believed to be a first for Rhode Island.

A NeighborWorks spokeswoman says they are looking for an artist to design the oven and a qualified mason to build it.
