The ancient story of Stone Soup is told in many communities throughout the world.
Every culture has their own version, but they all have the same premise: to bring community together to share resources and create a meal. The "Stone Soup – Fall Harvest for Preschoolers" class at 21 Acres follows that premise.
Preschoolers ages 2-4 years old, along with a parent or care-giver, will enjoy a trip to the 21 Acres Farm and Market to harvest or shop for soup ingredients, then help participate in the soup preparation.
Everyone will share this scrumptious soup and enjoy hearing the story of "Stone Soup."
The class is offered on two days, Saturday, October 19, and Tuesday, October 22, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Instructors are Maria Galvao (Maria’s Desserts) and Donna Hawkey, who met and found that both have mutual food values and philosophies.
They are beginning an adventure to spread the word to children that food is nourishing and fun, and to teach them that choosing what you eat is an important life skill that needs to be developed with a positive impact in our community and environment.
Fee for the class is $20 for parent/child; $15 for 21 Acres members and $10 for each additional child. Please note this class will not be able to accommodate food allergies or special dietary needs.
Weather appropriate clothing/shoes for a trip on the farm is suggested along with an apron or smock if desired.
As a special offer, all 21 Acres students receive a discount in the 21 Acres Farm Market the week after class.
