Details

  • Description

    Description

    It's a family land filled with fruit trees, then the place was abandoned before converted into a palm oil plantation.

    We want to rescue the plot of land to convert it into an educational garden where we can teach about sustainability. Currently we are running a small part of it as a coconut nursery.

    It's about 3 miles to the Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre and the Sunbear Conservation Centre.
