Support with funding is currently sought to ensure the ongoing running and conservation of the nature garden, and for the building of an eco-friendly skills centre (see The Mission).
Costs for the running and development of the land are as follows —
Running costs – co-ordinator salary and general maintenance:
£5,100 per annum
Skills Centre development – line house building with office, workshop and classroom craft space, to include water, solar, electrics and composting toilets; and octagonal open-plan, roofed building for meetings, workshops and performance:
£7,750 total spend
(Costs accurate May 2017, with an exchange rate of 55 Gambian Dalasis to 1 GBP)
Building work on the skills centre will ideally commence at the end of October, in line with the end of rain season, with a view to opening our doors in January 2018.
A breakdown of costs and a copy of the site plan for the Skills Centre are available on request.
For any further information, please contact us. Visitors to the nature garden are always welcome.
