The Eden Project in Cornwall is hosting the award-winning Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED) African Garden.
The red earth garden, laden with edible crops and rich aromas, was opened in October in the warm temperate air of the Mediterranean Biome. The garden relates how CAMFED supports the most excluded girls and young women in rural sub-Saharan Africa to go to school, succeed, and become leaders and change-makers in their communities.
The garden attracted a great deal of attention at Chelsea, not only winning a gold medal but also the coveted BBC/RHS People’s Choice Award in the ‘Space to Grow’ category. It helped launch the international non-profit organisation’s #SeeGrowth campaign, through which CAMFED aims to support thousands more young women to establish climate-smart agricultural businesses.
