As part of Michelle Obama’s trip to Oxford, school girls from the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson school in London, which is championed by the First Lady, visited the Ghost Forest on a tour organised by the White House and Oxford University. The 37 students were taking part in a programme – arranged at the suggestion of Mrs Obama – to inspire them to study for a degree. The girls, who first met the First Lady in 2009, were reunited with her at Christ Church College where they presented her with a slice of the 300-year-old Denya from the Ghost Forest. The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson schoolgirls will now become ‘student ambassadors’ of the Ghost Forest project.
