Rambling in Bahrija + Permaculture site visit! 
Youth Ramblers Malta will be opening the forthcoming walk season by organising a ramble to Bahrija and its environs, in collaboration with Greenhouse Malta. Besides the beautiful scenery, which will include the majestic view at Fomm ir-Rih, we shall also have the opportunity to visit the Permaculture site at Bahrija, called 'Bahrija Oasis' (

Day of the Walk: Saturday 15th October 2011
Meeting time and place: 1400hrs in front of the Bahrija Church

The following is some information about 'Bahrija Oasis' and Permaculture:

The Bahrija Oasis is the first Permaculture farm set up in Malta, started by Peppi Gauci, who is a professional Permaculturalist. Permaculture is a holistic design philosophy which involves creating community eco-systems in which plants, animals, human beings, and all forms of ecological diversity interact to produce a prolific, ecologically-sound, and regenerative system that can support itself indefinitely. The project has now now matured, leading to the setting up of the Permaculture Research Foundation which aims to promote this life philosophy with the Maltese public.
