  • 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 and the benefits of a sustainable garden!

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