Stone Soup Festival

The Bay Of Islands,
Like the Bay of Islands Centre (for Sustainable Rural Economic Development),
the Stone Soup Festival depends entirely on volunteers. The demographics
of our region are such that the pool of resident potential volunteer
helpers is rather limited. We therefore depend on your help, even if
you live some distance away.
