Supporting Our Community
Our love for baking is knotted tightly with our love for supporting our community. Learn more about how Bigwood Bread is helping people near and far by supporting the people that support us.
Save BaldyBaldy Restoration Project
In 2019 a community effort convened and facilitated by the National Forest Foundation came together to address concerns around forest health, fire risk, and insect outbreak issues on and around Bald Mountain (Baldy). Bigwood Bread stepped up to the plate and offered an unbelievable 10-1 match, resulting in $1,900,000 being raised!
The money will be used in a multi-year effort to remove existing standing dead and downed trees from the bark beetle infestation, deter new insect infestations, remove existing fuels to help prevent fires, and replant thousands of new trees to increase diversity.
We are so thankful to all who contributed to the $75,000 Bigwood Bread match, and thanks to all the residents of the valley who answered the call to save the mountain.
A special thank you goes to the National Forest Foundation who generously provided a special matching grant of $850,000 to help save our most important asset in the valley.
