Event Details

For the second consecutive year, the park is organising a course on sustainable gardening. Just like last year, the course will be conducted by Peter Gatt. This time round, the course will be spread on 10 Saturdays and will be divided into 5 sub-courses of 2 sessions each (2 hours per session). Participants will have the option of either attending the whole course or any sub-course which might interest them more.

All sessions will be held at Il-Majjistral Park Visitor Centre and will start at 10:00. The fee to attend each sub-course is € 20 per sub-course but the fee for those who book to attend the whole course is only € 80 (€ 20 euro discount).
