Go Sourdough - Mindful Baking

Ines Lanza By Ines Lanza

My idea is to create a space for social baking and tackle mental health problems through baking bread and creating sourdough starters. Studies demonstrated that baking helps feeling happier.

I'd like to create an opportunity to people to learn the basics about sourdough bread. From creating a sourdough starter, to feeding it and keeping it alive, to bake bread with that starter and enjoy the skills of baking conjoined with mindful and start therapeutically the enjoyment of baking. Could be done individually or in classes of 6/8 people. Could be used to make friends, feeling better socially, enjoy a skill and learn something new. Coudl bring joy and friends!

What we'll deliver:

  • Teaching skills to the community
  • Create a sense of wellbeing
  • Support mental health

Why it's a great idea:

I think that a sense of community is important for society. We are often taken by stress and anxiety, all the responsibilities and rushing are starting having an effect on the individual and society. Studies demonstrated that baking, in particular bread, bring a sense of achievement, well being, accomplishment and an overall sense of joy. Even better if learn how to bake sourdough bread is done in community spaces like community centres and bring people together.

Steps to get it done:

  • Mindful approach
  • Tackle Mental Health Problems
  • Bring community together
  • Feeling happier
  • Life skill

Could work for school projects, mental health, organizations that promote well being
