Today a Crowdfunding has started for the Sanctuary!
The aim: £7000 will train 5 young rural women in plant species conservation at the Gurukula Botanical Sanctuary, Western Ghats, India.
We need to raise £7000 to train five young rural women as ‘Ecosystem gardeners’. In a small corner of the Western Ghats, the Gurukula Botanicla Sanctuary has been conserving the herbaceous flora of the forests. This includes instruction and practice in the cultivation of endangered plants. Trainees are provided with meals, lodging, and a stipend. English language classes are available. Graduates of the one-year course would be expected to continue in fully-paid work at the Sanctuary for at least one more year.
We’ve got 60 days to raise the funds.
