The EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030

Friends of the Earth Malta welcomes the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 and especially its targets for restoration and its focus on agroecology in the hope that this can provide a turning point for nature protection and reverse some of the damage done after years of spiralling degradation both on land and at sea and affecting the planet’s climate. See some aspects we would like to see highlighted and read about Maltese context in this article.


In February, delicious Beetroots are in season !

Beetroot juice may be helpful to maintain blood pressure, improve athletic performance⁠, digestion, and lower the risk of diabetes. The most commonly known colour of beetroot is purple, however, it can be white or golden as well. Beetroot with the greens still attached can be stored for up to four days in the fridge, but when the greens are cut off they can last up to four weeks. Raw beets do not freeze well since they tend to become soft on thawing. Freezing cooked beetroot is fine as it retains its flavour and texture.


Every donation, no matter how small, is an invaluable contribution towards Friends of the Earth Malta's work.
