July 1999: Gardeners at Trumpington Allotments, Cambridge, welcome Malian visitors Youssouf Konate and Siramory Diarra.

'On the Line' is a project which aims to establish friendships between communities who share our time zone. Through communication, visits, exchanges, events, and celebrations, it links people in eight countries along the meridian line.

Cambridge is part of this after Christian Aid put local allotment holders in touch with Malian market gardeners. A link has been established with the village Wdi in the Dogon Plateau. The contrasts between these communities are huge, but both groups hope to learn more about each other. Here's a diary of the link.

Browse these pages to find out more about our Dogon friends and their amazing horticulture.
