It is amazing to see how permaculture is gaining momentum in many places around the world. It is not a marginal subculture anymore as it used to be even some years ago. By now it is a strong and legitimate movement that makes an awful lot of sense. Social, environmental and economic rationale proved that permaculture is one of THE answers to many environmental and social challenges and crises humanity is facing in the present times. Joining the movement St Joan Antide Primary School in Malta initiated an Erasmus+ project called: School Permaculture Garden. It is a two-year-old project with partnering schools from Macedonia, Croatia, Iceland. Continue reading “Primary school permaculture in Malta”→

I met Kinga when I wanted to purchase organic worms to set up a School Wormery. Kinga was willing to supply our school, St. Paul’s Missionary College, in Rabat, with worms to start off our wormeries. She offered to deliver a programme about vermiculture and support the boys with any questions they may have about these organic worms. She delivered a short presentation during assembly and gave the children the opportunity to handle the worms and the fertile soil that they produced. Following this, she visited the classes to speak with the children and help them set up their wormeries.
Kinga impressed the teachers and Senior Management Team with her expertise in delivering such an educational workshop with these young children. She captivated their interest and motivated them to become involved in the caring of these fascinating creatures. She is very knowledgeable of the subject and was able to deliver an informative programme in such a professional manner.
