When it comes to fresh water, Malta admits it is living off its savings, not its income, and that always ends badly.

Cecilia Macaulay (thats me) invites her go-getter new friends in Malta (thats you) you to come see her presentation on people who decided to Think Different.

These trail-blazers decided it WAS possible to grow food gardens that caught their own water, grew their own fertiliser and pest protection, gardens that give more than they cost, forever.
See how they defied conventional wisdom, and made things happen, from the deserts of Jordan to rural Japan, to Inner city Sydney and more. Beautiful, independent and full of 'friends', thats the kind of gardens they are.

- Learn the Four 'S' method of keeping rainy-season water out of the drains, and stored in your soil, ready for use in the dry season.

- Get a glimpse into the secret life of soil. There is a whole city of creatures beneath our feet. The good news is, they are on our side.
Learn their 3 needs, and get motivated to help them help you.

- Now what? Help the other people in the room find do-able, desirable ways to re-design the water in their life, for a future that is delicious, self-maintaing, and full of choices, not constraints.

Even if you don't have or want a garden, this presentation will give you a new way of looking at the world, proof that Life is on the side of Life, health and connection, and that with a few small, strategic changes, every area in your life can start to go right, all by itself.

"While the problems of the world become increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple"
Bill Mollison

About Cecilia:
Cecilia Macaulay, the Permaculture Fairy, gets around.
Her work includes lecturing at design universities in Japan, in Japanese.
Her customers include Richard Branson, who had her draw up an self-maintaing garden design for his Caribbean home, Necker Island, along with Permaculture Designer Mark Garratt.
She is currently holidaying in Malta, and decided this event would be a fun way to meet like-minded people, and see what path the inspiration takes.

Thank you to Entrepreneur Angelo Xuereb, for sponsoring this event, and being a constant inspiration.
