3 homo sapiens sapiens... a little family.
General News · 3rd April 2016
So far so good on a month of dinners for Anne and Sam and their new baby Gael Aleksandar. But we're almost out of volunteers... hoping to make it to the end of April. But no worries. It's all good. Just thought I'd throw out a reminder... Sign up online, or if the net ain't your thing, call Max 6336.

I'm posting a real picture of them this time. Lots of people thought we had gotten sloths up here on the farm. Sorry about that.

Wait, no sloths? What am I to do with this bannana-bamboo puree then?

After returning from our long stint in the hospital we to were brought meals, and I must say the kindness and generosity of those people was just as nourishing for us as the delicious meals they prepared.

I never thanked all those people the way I should have, but I look forward to repaying the kindness. Sort of what a community is all about I reckon.
Yes to supporting families with young children!

Hi Walker
My daughter is almost 13 now but I remember those first few weeks after she was born. Everyday someone in the community would bring by a meal, the whole thing orchestrated by a friend. Sometimes we would see who dropped by and they would come in to visit our new baby, and sometimes the meal would be left on the step. Since then, I have organized meals for other families, and have brought meals. It is a great way to participate in community, and make a positive expression of the saying, "it takes a village to raise a child" What a better way express this than by giving homemade food! Not because of "need" or out of judgement, more out of celebration and community! Hope this helps clear up this misunderstanding!

hi Walker. I think you misunderstand something. This is just a way that our community thought would be a nice way to show support for our new family, since we just got back home from the birth of our son Gael in town. It's not a permanent thing or a desperate situation. Just islanders being friends by cooking a meal for us in a transition time. If you are ever in a similar spot I promise I'll cook for you!

I don't get it ? Are these people disabled ? Are they broke ? Why are they even on Cortes if they have no resources to feed themselves ?
