Much of the imagery we have of colonial Surinam was commissioned by officials and plantation owners, and as a consequence often left the slaves on which the plantation economy ran in the shadow and the background - quite literally in the case of this drawing, showing the sugar mill and cookhouse of a plantation near Jodensavanne, Surinam. Only when zooming in do we notice the woman and child talking to each other in the shadow of the mill. #suriname#slavery#jodensavanne#plantation#sugarmill

What Is Jojoba Oil?
Scientific Name – Simmondsia chinensis
Native – Arizona, Mexico, and California
Jojoba oil (pronounced as ho-ho-ba) is an odorless, golden liquid wax that is produced from the seeds of the jojoba plant. Derived from a desert shrub that is found in the arid regions of the Arizona, Mexico, and California, it is mainly extracted as liquid wax. This is later refined to the colorless and odorless jojoba oil.
Jojoba oil can be used alone or in combination with other essential oils to make it more beneficial. This ingredient gained importance due to its moisturizing and emollient properties. Its versatility has made it an indispensable part of the hair care and skin care industries. It restores the natural balance of the skin and hair by keeping them hydrated.
The Lombard House. A West Indian Plantation-style Creole manor on Chartres Street in the Bywater. Older photos are from the 1940’s from old-new-Orleans.com (highly recommend you check this site out) and Wiki. 💚
“A mile downriver from the French quarter stand this beautiful French Colonial-style manor house built in 1826 (possibly earlier) for Joseph Lombard on the former McCarty Plantation. The Lombard house embodies many rudimentary elements of early Louisiana architecture; double-pitched roof, center chimneys, dormer, French doors, no hall, gallery with wooden balustrade and colonettes, and a raised construction. In 1895 a florist’s garden and green house adjoined this property while the St. Mary’s Orphan Boy’s Asylum operates a block away on Mazant Street.” - New Orleans Then and Now
“The West Indian plantation home was most likely designed by Haitian Creole surveyor-architect Pilie. A raised house on pillars, in the 1950s the basement was filled in for rental units. The facade has plaster walls with five openings evenly spaced; the staircase in the center of the porch opens outwards to the yard and divides the six pillars supporting the overhangs. The roof is hipped with a central dormer on each elevation, it also has deep overhangs creating porches on the facade and the rear elevation.
The building has a raised basement, a main floor with five rooms, and an attic. The rooms on the main floor are a reception room, dining room seating twelve, small dining room for family use, salon, bedroom, and an office. The attic best represents the best Norman trussing in North America. 4 cypress vertical beams come down from the roof. Rectangular connections at the base of the roof redistribute the tension to the exterior walls. There are no support beams that connect the roof to the floor plate. Each beam was inscribed with roman numerals and connected to one another with a mortise and peg system.”

Greetings from Malawi! Located in East-Africa, Treedom has been operating there since 2012 with a project aimed at increasing agricultural productivity. Our trees have thus also been planted to create protective barriers around cultivated areas, to fend off animals and avoid harvest losses. #LetsGreenThePlanet
