Henry at 4, when Chutney sales started

Henry sells his chutney at local farm stands as well as direct. If you’d like some please contact us on nanci@alqemi.co.uk and we’d be happy to deliver! He’s got two versions….the oriinal Hot & Spicy (his favourite) or Balsamic Onion (the latest addition). Buy a jar of chutney and it pays for a football and some socks for one of his friends in Guatemala.

Got a Worry?

Got a Worry?

The Mayan Legend of the Worry Doll is that if you tell your worry to the doll at night and place the doll under your pillow, by morning your worries will be gone. The dolls are clothed in traditional Mayan costumes and stand 1 to 2 inches tall. Guatemalan artisans bind pieces of wood together or twist together short lengths of wire to create a frame and fashion a torso, legs, arms, and head. By winding cloth and yarn around the frame, the artisans give the doll shape. They use scraps of traditional woven fabric to make the doll costumes in lovely bright colours.
