Alamosa Elementary students spent the first part of the week making Stone Soup. The recipe for Stone Soup comes from a folktale about hungry travelers looking for something to eat in a village that doesn't want to share.
Elementary age students in Alamosa have carried on this tradition for 10 years to practice working as a community. Many of the soup's ingredients come from local farms and gardens and the students prepare all of the soup's vegetables.
About 500 students and community members ate together Wednesday afternoon.
