Organic Grove & Sunset

Organic Grove & Sunset

Join us for a lovely event where we will be spending some quality time, away from the stress and hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Saturday 12th April at 5pm at the Gaia Foundation in Għajn Tuffieħa.

We will start off with an introduction about the Clean Food Movement, followed by a  talk about the indigenous and the endemic plants.  We will then take a walk along the cliffs towards Għajn Tuffieħa tower.  After taking in the beautiful panorama we will visit the olive grove and taste the organic olive oil.

All the above for a donation of €3.

The event will conclude with a plate of Penne Provencale (onions, courgettes, mushrooms and peppers finished off with some parmesan) & a glass of wine/juice at Gaia while watching sunset.  The donation for this is €5.

A bar will be available.

Please book until Friday 11th of April NOON on info@greendrinksmalta.org.  Let us know if you wish to book the tour or the tour & dinner.

Looking forward to see you

UPCYCLE


Wednesday 9th April 2014 Bottegin Palazzo Xara in St. Paul’s Street, Rabat Malta 6.30pm - 8pm


Maria Ida will be sharing with us her passion for UPCYCLING.  Items that we usually throw away can be transformed into pretty artistic and useful pieces of art and thus giving them a new life.

This event is lovely for people of all ages!

We will have some material but we ask you to bring with you some items like toilet paper carton, other bit of carton, plastic bottle tops, beer / soda can tabs, coloured ribbon, scissors, glue, coloured paper etc.  Just put all on a bag and bring with you and we see what art can be created!

This event is organised by Green Drinks Malta as part of the Let’s Do It! Malta (national clean-up campaign – Campaign Values are HERE).  We would like to thank Maria Ida for her time and Jonathan Pace for hosting us.

This is a free event.  Email us to reserve your place on info@greendrinksmalta.org

Bottegin Palazzo Xara will be open before and after the event just in case you wish a nice hot chocolate before and something to eat afterwards.

Organic Farm Walkabout with Louis - Pesticide Action Week 2014

The feedback was really good and so happy that the initiative was well received.  One of the comments we received was from Christine, who with great dedication coordinates The Vegetarian Society of Malta:

As you know, Grace and myself attended the farm walkabout and it was a great experience! It was so good to have the opportunity to to go around such a beautiful farm and ask questions directly to the farmer. It was a great learning experience and it was so nice to meet a farmer like Louis who is so dedicated and who has so much passion for what he does. He is truly an inspiration! 

A huge thanks to all for this great initiative! 

Regards,
Christine
