Green Drinks goes Permaculture - 29th November 2008

We will be meeting on Saturday 29th November at 7pm at L'Isle Adam Band Club in Rabat. We will have a short introduction about Permaculture in Malta by Peppi Gauci and then we will show the film around 7.30pm.

The Film
The excellent film called 'The Power of Community' tells the story of how Cuba survived the peak oil crisis. Basically the film/doc is 53 mins and documents how during a synthetic peak oil crisis, Cuba has managed to survive through reducing its energy uses and implementing Permaculture techniques.

After the film, we will spend some time together at the Band Club which is an architectural jewel and you can experience the kazin culture. Drinks are at reasonable prices and Jonathan also promised us that he will have some lovely home made food to sell.

Join Us!
If you would like to apply for this event, kindly send an email to with your name, surname, telephone number and email address. As we have limited seating for the film, we encourage you to apply asap!

This is a free event.

Love and peace
The Green Drinks Team

What is Permaculture ?

"Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted & thoughtful observation rather than protracted & thoughtless labour; of looking at plants & animals in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single-product system."
Bill Mollison (from the website)

In Permaculture ,rather than exploiting the resources and landscape around us , damaging the delicate balance between different parts of the ecosystem, we work with what we have already available ,using nature as an example . By observing how nature solves its problems, how it conserves energy and recycles it's waste, we are able to get the most of our land without damaging our environment.
The subject is vast so for more information visit-link
