Hello everybody thank you for clicking on this link and visiting the Bahrija Blog spot.
Just to give you an update and fill you in with all that has been happening on the Oasis and share with you relevant links to let you know we are still going strong and the Permaculture Research Foundation Malta is growing. Bahrija Oasis is still evolving and serving as a wonderful Oasis for people to learn, grow and evolve.
So here are the relevant links so you can continue the journey with us.
We have a wide selection of Courses you can take to further your knowledge of Permaculture design: We are also delighted to tell you that you can get these courses funded through the EU - Gruntvig scheme http://www.permaculturemalta.org/courses/
We also now hold retreats for people coming from abroad. These are great opportunities to make your holiday not only an opportunity to visit a beautiful Island but also to learn, grow and evolve through Permaculture design. Permaculture is a way of life; it’s not just about farming.
So that’s all for now. We hope you will come and visit the links above and support the research by sharing with friends and coming to explore the Oasis. Permaculture is about community and community is about the people and nature.
Together we create new systems which make the old that don't serve us anymore obsolete.
Sunsets are never a bore, even if we experience them daily.
As the dates to the exciting upcoming permaculture courses draw nearer,we are kept busy with activities happening at the Oasis... Volunteers and permaculturists are working together to cultivate and expand further the establishment of rural sustainable design. The pictures that follow, show some clips of the recent activities. For the upcoming courses please visit www.permaculturemalta.org/courses/ One of our bell tents is comfortably sitting near the carob tree while hosting friends who stay with us for some time and help out with the chores of an organic permaculture farm.
The view on our coast is breathtaking and we have enjoyed countless sunsets among the giant rocks that make up the characteristics of our earthly paradise.
Giorgia and Stefano from Milan stayed with us for a few weeks. in this picture, Giorgia is busy with her newly acquired skill of using reeds as a natural material for creativity at the oasis. Reeds are carefully traditionally coppiced once a year. They are annual and thus they regrow each year. Thus they are classified as a renewable material.
Spiru is a young permaculture apprentice who is enjoying keeping free range chicken. He is keen on improving the farm with integrative elements and is always helping out with new ideas...however radical they may seem.
