Salida Soup 50 Winners S.A.V.E-ing Seeds for our Future
After a mildly disappointing August, the September crew came out in full effect for Salida Soup 50! High energy, free seeds, and a rap about Shakespeare were just some of the highlights. Each of the three presenting groups - S.A.V.E Salida Seed Library, elevateHER, and the Salida High School Drama Team - were prepared, full of creative spirit, and excited to be there. The Seed Library crew had wooden bowls of free, locally-grown and adapted seeds to share on tables; the elevateHER presenters donned equipment from their favorite activities and talked about the importance of supporting one another to make everyone stronger, and the Drama Team gave the Wu-Tang Clan a run for their money, rapping about the one-act Hamlet they want to bring to Denver in December.
Adding to the excitement was the news that Howl Mercantile & Coffee donated an extra $100 to September’s Soup pot, bringing the total raised to $850! Making yet another close decision, the diners chose the Seed Library as the winner.
Many thanks to all who participated! Stay tuned - Spooky Soup (Salida Soup 51) happens on October 17th! Come in costume for a special treat!
