In 2008, Jim Wayman, a member of Concord’s Agricultural Committee, persuaded the town and a group of volunteers to host Concord’s first Stone Soup dinner. Jim loved the idea that a small town in Italy, Buonconvento, came together to “celebrate community, respect for the land and gratitude for what it provides.” He loved the idea of a dinner that stretched on long tables where neighbors came together to share dishes made from locally-grown food.
We’re pleased to announce that Stone Soup will celebrate its 5th year this year! It truly has become an annual town event.
Stone Soup will be held at Verrill Farm for the second straight year.
The date? Sunday, September 30th, 2012 at 4:00 for drinks and appetizers. 5:00 for dinner.
As in years past, the farms and food establishments of Concord will donate their produce and mouth-watering food. All “profits” from the sale of tickets will again go to help young farmers.
This collaborative effort truly celebrates Concord’s agricultural heritage. It connects us to the land that feeds us. We invite you to come eat deliciously for the food of the town.
