Revitalizing Worcester from the Bottom-Up

Please consider donating all or a portion of your “economic stimulus” rebate to Stone Soup, a new community center that is truly revitalizing Worcester’s inner city.

Help support our work for true community improvement:

1. Stone Soup members are creating worker and housing cooperatives to provide secure jobs and to prevent future home foreclosures.

2. Volunteer-based sustainability projects for people and the planet at Stone Soup:

  • Earn-A-Bike promotes bicycling culture in Worcester
  • Worcester Roots Project helps create healthy green spaces for growing food
  • Ex-prisoners and Prisoners Organizing for Community Advancement (EPOCA) is developing a green-collar jobs program.
  • Stone Soup also strives to be an example of sustainability with roof-top gardens, recycling/composting and future plans for green building.
  • 3. Cultural projects and events. Stone Soup has hosted 16 cultural events since its inauguration in January of 2006. We just held the first “Encuentro Jíbaro de Primavera/Springtime Puerto Rican Musical Gathering” on April 20th, which was a great success.

    4. Incubator of new projects and community-based endeavors.

    We invite you to work together with us, building on our collective strengths towards a positive, sustainable future for all.

    We are currently fundraising for improvements to the space such as wheelchair accessibility, commercial kitchen, and insulation.
