stone soup supper

Stone Soup Supper is a premiere soup competition that brings hundreds of people together for a good cause. Stone Soup is a folk story in which hungry strangers convince the people of a town to each share a small amount of their food in order to make a meal that everyone enjoys – with the moral being – the value of sharing.

tour d’ coop

Tour D’Coop was the East Coast’s largest chicken coop tour, raising more than $27,000 for Urban Ministries of Wake County in 2019. Participants enjoyed urban chicken coops, gardens, and beehives along the self-guided tour with food, music, and more!

After many years of working with a generous group of volunteers, coop hosts, and donors, the tough decision was made to no longer continue with Tour D’ Coop. All the supporters who made this event happen over the years are greatly appreciated!
