Chiseling away poverty: building stable lives.
Do you remember the fable? One traveler, some stones, one community.
The Stone Soup fable tells the story of a hungry traveler arriving at a town and starting a big pot of water boiling with a few stones. The traveler is hungry and no one has offered food. As people become intrigued with the boiling water, they begin to offer and add their own homegrown contributions. The soup soon becomes much richer. In the end there is enough nourishing soup for everyone and all have learned the magic of sharing and cooperation.
This is the founding ideal of Stone Soup Community.
