Bee in Nature at Fawwara 


CEER and Greenhouse Malta organised another open day at the Fawwara premises on the 22nd November, in collaboration with Friends of the Earth (Malta) and Slow Food Malta.  Around 50 people showed up on the day. The day started with a number of volunteers doing a little hands-on gardening work at the CEER Centre. This included weeding, preparing the soil for the upcoming sowing season and a general clean up. This was followed by a communal vegetarian meal in the sun.

For the second half the theme of the day was Bees. John Portelli from Slow Food Malta and Vince Caruana from CEER introduced the day, followed by Paul de Zylva from Friends of the Earth England Wales and Northern Ireland, who gave a short talk about the current UK BEE Campaign as well as the importance, ecology and biology of bees. Afterwards the volunteers split into two groups and were given a tour of an apiary nearby, followed by a tasting of two types of honey. Wild Thyme Honey used in this apiary was recently given Presidia status in the Slow Food Movement). The event is co-financed by the European Union and MSDC.

If you would like to attend future open days please contact Vincent Caruana or Greenhouse Malta
