Don Murray, chair of horticulture at the Eden Project comments:

"There is nothing more positive than seeing the Ballabu initiative coming together and visualising the positive effects it could have on the Gambian villages - it gives me real hope."

Visit to the Eden Project & Cornwall by Malang D K Jambang

Malang D K Jambang is the director of the Makasutu Wildlife Trust. Based in The Gambia, Malang is also the chief coordinator for the five Gambian schools so far participating in the Gardens for Life scheme.

In September 2008, Malang made a special visit to the Eden Project and Cornwall. The main purpose of Malang’s visit was to familiarise him with Eden Project in general, but more particularly, with the Gardens for Life programme in Cornwall.

Schools visits

Malang visited nine Cornish schools (actively participating in Gardens for Life) whilst in the UK in September 08. In most cases he was not only shown the gardening activity by staff and students, but was also able to sit with classes and groups of students to talk about Gambian schools, gardens and children. A big impression was made on both teachers and students, with two schools requesting links with Gambian schools as a result.

Media Coverage

Malang’s visit to St Stephen’s Primary School in Saltash was filmed, and featured prominently on BBC Spotlight, raising the profile of the Gardens for Life programme and highlighting the Eden Project’s blossoming relationship with The Gambia, as well as their new Gambia exhibit. Before leaving, Malang also gave a presentation to Friends of the Eden Project, as well as staff. Malang’s flight from The Gambia was sponsored by The Gambia Experience and he was accommodated by Ron Jordan, a Friend of Eden Project.
