Youth Initiative in Permaculture in Malta

An increasing interest on the subject is currently building momentum. A number of youths are interested in getting a deeper understanding of this design science and how it can be implemented in daily life to bring on positive changes.

I am therefore working together with a few of their ideas. These ideas will lead to a number of workshops and also an intesive 'Introduction to Permaculture course' which will include viewing interesting documentaries and voluntary work on Bahrija oasis project. The course will be a three day camp based event and will also have the potential to bring a few like minded individuals who have a common interest. So far there is no stipulated date, however we will have the first activity round April 09. Anyone who is interested in being part of this upcoming event can write to and state why you are interested, what you expect from the experience, and what you will contribute to the group.

Unfortunately, there is only a number of youths that can fit in a group that can be accomodated comfortably, so if you are seriously interested, please email as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
