As part of the Erasmus+ Growing Together project, Friends of the Earth Malta together with Peppi Gauci from Permaculture Malta will be hosting 12 youths at his Bahrija Oasis for 3 hands-on, immersive sessions on the 27th April, 11th May and 18th May 2019. These sessions are 3 hours long and will all begin at 10am sharp and end at 1pm.
This is a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about sustainable agriculture from an expert in the field. We have a total of 12 spots available for booking (for all 3 sessions) and you must be between the ages of 13 to 30.
Topics you will learn through this 3-session experience with Peppi:
- Observation is rule number 1: what are we looking at, and what is Nature saying!
- Basic permaculture principles
- Introduction to Permaculture design
- Design for your site (climate, space and adaptation)
- Sprouting and germinating your seed. Watering and creating the right micro climate for your plants
- Composting just about everything. Human manure composting, processes and design
- Weeds are us. The weeds that we love and those that we need to look out for
- Weeding and mulching
- Drip irrigation and design
- Creating cyclic design processes that are the most efficient for us. Efficiency is key.
- Thinking in systems
If you are between the age of 13-30 and are interested in participating, kindly fill in the form below. Spaces are limited so make sure to book ASAP. For any queries email Mandy at firstname.lastname@example.org
