The many flavors of Stone Soup


Our days got a  lil’ more flavorful recently as we enjoyed the delicious goodness of fresh Orca Stone Soup. Y’all know the tale of Stone Soup? It’s an amazing folktale about sharing that has existed for decades.


It’s an annual tradition around here to gather the bounty of the garden and cook up some incredible soup. We also tell & retell the story through drawing and sharing while we eat. It’s all about combining science, food, and art. This is perfect tri-connection that hits home (and stomachs) nicely.


As students get older at Orca we progress this activity to explore the difference between a fresh, local, and organic soup AND your average soup can (see next post for info on that scientific foodiness).
