Soul Food's A.B.C
Buy yourself some fun
art magnets and display your art and photos on the fridge where you
can see your work every day. Put your goals up there as well. Magnets
make it so easy to change the display and no work will be damaged.
Community is important here at Soul Food and Riversleigh is the place where you will find lot of long term residents.
The Faraway Tree is in the Lemurian Golden Grove, quite close to Riversleigh Manor. If you climb the tree you will find lots of fascinating characters like Silky, Moonface, Dame Washalot, the Saucepan Man and Mr ChangeAbout.

Advent Calendar 2005
A highlight of 2005 was the creation of the Silk Road. A group of hardy travelers snapped up the opportunity to head off with le Enchanteur in search of the Amazon Queen's camp and the journey proved remarkable. It culminated with the creation of the 2005 Advent Calendar which was a joy to make.

Send Soul Food Chocolates

Childhood is a state or phase of imaginative existence, the phase in which the world of imagination is still a brave new world and yet reassuring and intelligible.
The strictly non-fat chocolate from the Soul Food Chocolate Box is full of projects and material to help us return to that wondrous kingdom where imagination and creativity rule. The special fillings focus on celebrating childhood joy, spontaneity and imagination.
