  • 'Views of Barns Centre', by "A.S.", Baobab Young person

    "I really enjoyed the holiday. I will never forget the beautiful garden. It was big and there were many trees and this reminded me of the Oromo tree the Oda tree. The Oda tree has a story that people have to respect all trees and not cut them down or burn them. They have to look after the tree. The tree smells very good and if you eat the fruit you get iron from the fruit.


    "I love trees and I loved the retreat and I hope we can come next year again. I am AS and I love the Baobab group..."
