Martin and Sylvia love the classic story so much that one morning, they are inspired to create their own stone soup experience — complete with stones, vegetables and the collaboration of neighborhood friends. At the heart of the stone soup story are the happy accidents of what people bring to the community meal — and though brother and sister have a plan, they are delighted and surprised with the results.
