July 2012: The garden in Maison de la Gare’s Saint Louis centre has made enormous strides since it was renewed in April.
The garden is very popular with the Talibé children who, with the help of team member Aladji Gaye, are doing work that would make a professional horticulturalist proud!
Thus, it is with great pride that the Maison de la Gare team, and in particular Aladji who is responsible for the garden, make ready for the first harvest.
The garden has a great variety of plants, with carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage, peppers (green and red), and a number of other vegetables.
The purpose of this gardening activity is nothing less than a way of combating the begging of the Talibé children.
Produce from the garden will serve to feed the children, but also to support them in developing skills that will help them to become financially self-sufficient in the future.
Congratulations to Aladji and his team for the amazing work that they have accomplished.
