Enrique won't be here this week, but the presentation at the Library is still on.

Lin­da & Mau­reen have been help­ing the folks with the Slow Food Project & the cool direc­tion that healthy eat­ing is going on the island (I love it! Have you eat­en at the high school late­ly? It rocks!) Here’s more from our friends:

Please see our lat­est update:

Enrique Cer­da, the truf­fle mak­er from the Kallari choco­late cooperative
who was to vis­it SJI won’t be here. The U.S. embassy in Ecuador has been
hold­ing up his pass­port and visa. (Con­tact info for the embassy is on our
web page).

His trans­la­tor and intern Bec­ca Roeb­ber, who also lives and works with
Kallari coop­er­a­tive in Ecuador, will have a choco­late tast­ing and
pre­sen­ta­tion about Ecuador, sus­tain­able farm­ing, indige­nous rights, the
very suc­cess­ful Kallari choco­late farm­ers’ coop­er­a­tive, and prob­a­bly a
lit­tle about the pol­i­tics that hold up visas. The pre­sen­ta­tion is called:

WED. 3/18 at the SJI LIBRARY MEETING ROOM from 3:15–4:45 pm.
1010 Guard St. Fri­day Har­bor 360–378-2798
Admis­sion is free, and the meet­ing room holds 35 people.

Bec­ca will bring a lot of Kallari choco­late — “the best choco­late on earth”.

The truf­fle class sched­uled for 3/18 was full, but is can­celed due to
Enrique’s absence. He hopes to vis­it next year…

Our Youth web page has pic­tures of some of our recent activ­i­ties. We’ll
post more pic­tures and sto­ries soon -‑1
