STONE SOUP: A hungry traveller arrives in a village with no food or money. The villagers have no food to offer him. He produces a special stone and asks for a cookpot, and water. He fills the pot with water and the stone and places it on the fire. As the villagers gather around to see this strange stone soup, one asks if a bit of salt would help the flavor, and offers some. Another villager offers some turnips, and then another a sprig of rosemary. And so on. By the end of the evening the entire village gathers around the fire and shares in the large feast.
Bring something (vegetable, herbs, etc. to add to the soup (this will be a vegetarian soup).
Visit the Botanical Garden, visit with friends, old and new.
Donate to Axle Projects to support our programs (cash, check, credit cards).
Enjoy a bowl of soup & celebrate.
The cooking will begin at 3pm. The soup will be served around 4:00.
Entry to the Botanical Garden is free, as is a bowl of soup.

For over five years our mobile gallery, Axle Contemporary, has traveled the streets of Santa Fe creating great abundance that radiates from our humble aluminum step van. By engaging a wide group of artists and audiences, we manage to create experiences that are often greater than the sum of their parts.
Stone Soup is a fundraiser to support our 501(c)(3) non-profit, Axle Projects, Inc.
On this Sunday, November 1st, gather around a fire at the Santa Fe Botanical Garden on Museum Hill in Santa Fe. We will fill a cookpot with water and a magical stone. We invite our community to bring herbs, spices, and vegetables to contribute to an exquisite pot of soup. We also invite you to bring your cash, check, or credit card to contribute to Axle Projects, so that we may continue to provide our engaged and engaging art projects to our city.
If you are unable to make it to this event, you can still contribute to Axle Projects.
Special thanks to The Santa Fe Botanical Garden for hosting this special event!
