"The soil is, as a matter of fact, full of live organisms. It is essential to conceive of it as something pulsating with life, not as a dead or inert mass."

Mary Trotochaud of Everyday Pottery in Belmont donated these bowls for the MOFGA-El Salvador Sistering Committee's April 30 Empty Bowl Supper in Belfast.

Beautiful Bowls, Savory Soup, Art, Music and Friends

MOFGA-El Salvador Sistering Committee Empty Bowl Supper

With music by Happytown and hands-on pottery demo by Russell Kahn

The April 30 Empty Bowl Supper in Belfast, a benefit for the MOFGA-El Salvador Sistering Committee's work, promises to be better than ever this year, with a celebration of 15 years of sistering and solidarity and with a chance to try your hand at making a clay pot.

The Sistering Committee, part of MOFGA, holds this fundraiser annually, thanks to the generosity of the Unitarian Universalist Church, which donates the space; to many Maine potters who donate their beautiful bowls; to the Back 40 Bakehouse, which donates bread; and to the Belfast Co-op Store, which donates drinks, butter and more.

Participants get to buy one of these handsome bowls and fill it with soup made by Cheryl Wixson of Cheryl Wixson's Kitchen and featuring Maine organic ingredients from MOFGA-certified organic Happytown Farm and Rabbit Hill Farm – all for just $15 ($35 maximum for families).
