Our Stone Soup celebration this Fall was a ravishing success. Each child brought in their favorite veggies to add to the community pot – carrots, broccoli, carrots, potatoes, turnips, and yes, more carrots. But the real stars of the soup were the vegetables and herbs we grew from our very own garden. We planted, watered, watched and waited until the day came to pick. The herbs the children harvested were the perfect finishing touch to our stone soup.
Along with gardening our own vegetables, our preschoolers made their very own bread from scratch. We ground wheat berries into flour using a mortar and pestle -and it was SO hard! – so we switched to a french stone grinder.
From berries, to flour, to bread, and from seeds to vegetables, our preschoolers experienced a true farm to table meal – a yummy one too!
