Akwamu Hills Community Forest Project (Ghana)
Wellspring prepared an overall site Masterplan for the extensive conservation, tourism and community project along with Masterplans for the Botanical Gardens and Eternal Colour Garden components. The Botanic Gardens plans showcase local species and accommodate a range of tourism, research and educational facilities. Designs respond to the dramatic hilly site next to the Volta River and are inspired by traditional cultural motifs and the flag of Ghana. The project has significant potential to conserve endangered bird and plant species, boost tourism, create educational opportunities and local employment, while reintroducing natural forest species.
