Proġett Ħwawar u Fjuri and Majjistral Nature and History Park are hosting a visit of the Park on the 26th of April through the rich landscape of Malta’s first natural National park. The walk starts at 09:30 and ends around 12:00. It goes along a circular route about 5 km long, so to have a pleasant time please wear adequate walking shoes for slightly rugged terrain.
To join us for the visit please make advanced booking of your participation by email to Annalise Falzon, the Park Guide, on firstname.lastname@example.org. Every participant is required to pay 5 euro that will go to Majjistral Park. The group visit is limited to 35 people so booking are made on a first come first serve basis. Booking are closed by the 22nd of April. The walk is open to everyone and is guided by Annalise Falzon.
The Park is the first natural National park of the Maltese islands, and is home to a rich variety of endemic flora. Our walk will take us through the scenic landscape of the northwest of Malta, where we will be able to experience some of the 430 different plant species that are hosted in the park. The Proġett Ħwawar u Fjuri through this walk hopes that participants will openly share their stories and experiences, in line with the project’s narrative method, as they walk around the flora and landscape of the National park.
‘Ħwawar u Fjuri’ aims to create a space were Maltese nationals and migrants can meet each other and share experiences through narration of stories on the use of herbs and flowers in their own country and culture of origin.
Proġett Ħwawar u Fjuri is a project run by Integra Foundation in collaboration with the Carmelite Priory in Mdina with funds awarded under the President’s Creativity Award.
