The Botanical Gardens feature a wide variety of plant specimens from countries with a Mediterranean climate, showing the great similarity between the landscapes of California, Chile, South Africa and Australia, and the Mediterranean basin. Unlike other museums with collections of non-living materials, the Gardens are a constantly evolving, dynamic space. New species are grown every year in the nurseries and planted out in the grounds. The ones that fail to adapt to the climate or soil characteristics are removed from the collection.
The Botanical Gardens are home to some 1,350 species, although the eventual aim is to grow 4,000 Mediterranean species from around the world. The species are grouped together in a recreation of their natural ecosystems.
The Botanical Gardens were created to contribute to the ex-situ conservation of Mediterranean biodiversity, mainly focusing on species from Catalonia. The Gardens are the ideal place to grow and exhibit plant species that are under threat. They also disseminate knowledge about which species need protecting and the actions to be taken in order to achieve this aim.
The Abolicao Trust (UK registered charity 1111395) uses the Brazilian art-form Capoeira to support young people in rural South Africa. Through free classes, events and international exchanges, they can develop confidence, learn new skills in a safe environment and build hope for the future - engagement through capoeira.
The Gambia Permaculture Resource Centre
The Gambia Permaculture Resource Centre is a project initiated by the Ecotourism Society, the Gambia (the ESG), a group of passionate young Gambians focussed on promoting the role of Ecotourism as a key driver for sustainable development in the country.
The ESG recognises the importance of local, organic farming and are particularly keen to bring knowledge of permaculture to the country. They aim to launch the Gambia Permaculture Resource Centre in 2016, a place providing training and other resources as well as a meet-up point for people interested in permaculture both locally and internationally. The resource centre will also function as a guest house for people coming to collaborate on the project or for those wishing to have a permaculture holiday in the Gambia, organised by the ESG.
The ESG have already acquired premises for the Centre and have completed renovations and initial work on the garden.
The ESG now need some funds to cover additional resources for the centre including furniture, equipment, educational materials and wages for key staff.
The project will open to the public in the second half of 2016.
For more information, please contact or go to EcoGambia on facebook. The website www.ecogambia.com will launch in January 2016.
