We cook and share whatever we create with those that help us build our home. We also give to young people and the elderly. Small entities we help by purchasing the foods and products they need to get started.
Like Miguel who is just starting out with his drum pan of goodies cooked foods he sells on the roadside to people at the market who need a nutritous meal to keep them going. We gave him callaloo, tomatoes, onions, seasonings, skellions, and scotch bonnet peppers; with this he can serve a really nutritous vegetarian meal to people like us.
Our motto is each one help one. By growing our own foods and sharing what we have we have been able to get an amazing painter, a terrific mason and some youngsters who are strong enough to lift some blocks and build a wall. Each day these guys are paid with a barter, we exchange what we have for the work they provide. All we need to get is the building materials.
The pictures posted are some of the foods we have shared, you will notice callaloo, cabbage with okra, fried fish, fried bread fruit, avocado, crispy cucumbers, ackee with macaroni, and boiled pumpkin, bananas and dumplings, just to name a few.
We cook here daily, so on any given day you will find a couple of guys at the back sitting outside anxiously awaiting the creation of the day, while they are preparing cement mixtures and carrying building supplies for wall preparations.
Our goal is to build a real kitchen, a outside shower, about 5 more bedrooms, a living room, a media/music room and a libraray. I love to read.
We currently have two rooms we use as bedrooms and a makeshift kitchen and another room filled with all our furniture waiting for the other rooms to be complete so we can set up shop and start living the life we dream free from outside interference to grow and learn whatever we desire and research.
