Stone Soup is a collaborative project of the Virginia Cooperative Extension and the GWCFEC, with funding from the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development through its grant to support agriculture, food processing, and workforce development training at the George Washington Carver Agriculture Center in Culpeper County. Further support for this training is provided by the Culpeper Department of Social Services, Rural Madison and Rappahannock Goodwill Industries. The first pilot in Culpeper finished on October 27, with the second finishing in Madison on December 14. Funding will be sought for making this a permanent training program for our region.
