An ugly grey area of wall below the Arfican Garden has now been brought to life by two of our volunteers. 

First we had Scott (3rd from left below), an artist from America, who came in December and painted most of our - 'International Tree'. You should be able to tell that each fruit on the tree represents a country of one of our volunteers. So far we have 21 countries on there. Here's the full list.

UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, Holland, Denmark, Singapore, Canada, Switzerland, Australia, Malaysia, Belgium, 
Bulgaria, USA, South Africa, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Japan

Then Yuam, from Korea / USA came recently, touched up the tree and then created the rest which shows some of the plants and animals from our land and surrounding area. There are wild boar, millipedes, bamboo, racoons, giant crows, and more.

We still have half the wall empty for a future artist to cover. 

Thanks to Scott and Yuam
