Sharing seeds of hope in our Social Permaculture seminar

Over 50 participants joined us on Thursday 16 May for a Seminar on Social Permaculture, held at Il-Kappella tal-Madonna tal-Anġli, Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq. The seminar was organised for people working with vulnerable adults, from people with mental or physical disabilities, to migrants, elderly people and people with drug or alcohol addiction. Participants learned about social permaculture principles and practices to create resilient and sustainable communities. Social Permaculture involves more than natural ecosystems and agricultural or gardening practices. Its ethics and principles can also be applied to other aspects of human life, such as education, health, buildings and governance.

Press Release: EU Parliament votes to leave the climate-wrecking Energy Charter Treaty

Today, the European Parliament adopted the EU’s proposal to leave the controversial Energy Charter Treaty (ECT), an international trade agreement protecting fossil fuel investments. The Energy Charter Treaty is a significant obstacle to enacting national policies to combat climate change.  After years of campaigning for an exit, Friends of the Earth Europe and climate justice activists across Europe celebrate this victory for the environment and the climate.

A look back at our Community Garden session with Social Permaculture workshop

Let’s take a look back at last Saturday’s Community Garden session, which featured a Social Permaculture workshop this time, as it was the multiplier event for the Social PEAS project. Thanks to the 35 amazing participants who joined us in our community garden. Together, we dove into the heart of sustainability and connection.
We prepared soil mix with recycled coconut coir and mushroom peat, sourced locally from farmers. Then, we planted different fruit trees to be able to grow and harvest a variety of fruits in the future, as well as seasonal veggies.
