Supported by the Creative Communities Fund

Friends of the Earth Malta

A project built around the use of creative methods within the community to learn about nature and food production. The children were involved in artistic workshops with a focus on nature, with the aim of exploring the natural world in an alternative way, and providing teachers with further ideas on how to utilise the community edible garden and reading area for learning opportunities. The ultimate goal for the garden is to create a multisensory area where all members of the community can visit and experience nature through all the senses.

Ġnien Naqra Qatra was organised by Friends of the Earth Malta and Maria Regina College Mosta Primary A School – Kindergarden Annexe, in collaboration with the Local Council of Mosta. The project falls under the Schools of Sustainability EU-wide Project; organised with the financial assistance of the Creative Communities fund (managed by Arts Council Malta) and the European Union. The Schools of Sustainability Project in Malta is co-financed by the Ministry for Social Dialogue, Consumer Affairs and Civil Liberties.
