Join Stone Soup Café for the 18th Annual Harvest Supper Celebration on the Greenfield Town Common!
The Harvest Supper is always free and open to everyone in the community. Swing by for delicious food, music, face painting, story sharing, and a “Really Really Free Store.” Saturday, August 27 from 4PM to 7PM.
The rain date will be Sunday, August 28th at the same time.
Last year’s Harvest Supper was canceled last minute due to an impending hurricane, the previous year was in a ‘to-go” format to accommodate the restrictions from the pandemic. To protect our community, masks will still be strongly encouraged at this year’s event whenever possible. People are encouraged to bring their own plates, cups, and utensils to cut down on waste.
The Harvest Supper is an annual event celebrating local food, farms, and community. Every August, the town comes together to share the farmers’ bountiful harvest with the community. Farmers and talented chefs donate their time and produce to create an amazing meal that is served to 800+ people every year.
This year the event will take place in-person, with live music from local musicians like Ben Grosscup, Annie Hassett, Matt Goulet, Ashley Kramer, Musica Franklin, and Antenna Cloud Farm Experimental Institute.
The Harvest Supper was started in 2005 by Juanita Nelson, an ardent pacifist, war tax resister, civil rights activist, and supporter of local, organic agriculture. Nelson encouraged people to grow their own food and to support local farming as part of the local economy, which she said was an expression of nonviolence.
Stone Soup is looking for over 100 volunteers to help make the supper a success. You can sign up for a volunteer shift on Stone Soup’s website: www.thestonesoupcafe.org.
