Since AAVB (Agence pour l’Aménagement de la Vallée du Bouregreg) and FUNCI signed an agreement in 2014 in order to create the “Gardening School Med O Med – Boureberg” in the city of Salé, the project has made many progress. The architectural project, carried out by the architecture firm Yvars y Mangera in cooperation with the Moroccan architect Hakim Jaafri is in its final phase.
On the other hand the landscape project, which will turn the four hectares that constitute the ancient landfill site of Oulja into a big nursery, a cultural park and a Garden Centre and in which the school will be located, is carried out by the landscapist Mikel García de Eulate and its team Lasuma, from Bilbao.
The recruitment and training program, which form the soul of this social project targeted at groups at risk of social exclusion, is being carried out by the University of Sevilla’s professor Alberto Juan y Seva, through an agreement signed by FUNCI with this university.The degree of this non formal training school is recognized by Morocco’s Ministry of National Education and Professional Training. This school is set to become not only a social reference point for Morocco, but also an environmental and touristic example.
