About Green Living

Green Living represents a simple, alternative, creative and sustainable way of life. Amongst the hustle of our daily schedules, we understand how easy it can be to lose track of underlying obligations like eating healthy and enjoying the finer things in life. Green Living was created with the purpose of spreading awareness around the benefits of living a healthy life within a natural environment.

We need to spend more of our time away from our screens and find ways to let nature balance our lives. Spending valuable time in nature will help increase feelings of well-being and a creative frame of mind.

In the Woods

A summer club program that gets kids outside and connects them with nature! Our nature club takes place entirely outdoors. Time outside in real nature is the motivation behind everything we do. Our aim is to encourage kids to connect with their wild selves and investigate the world of nature. The Green Living Summer Club will run from 1st week of July to 2nd week of September between Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm.

An Exclusive and Unique Opportunity

Our Summer Club allows children to explore in nature and offers just the right mix of fun and hands-on learning. It will be a long lasting education experience and will give the children chance to view their worlds and their life in a much more positive, healthy and responsible way.

Ages 3-5

Every day promises new nature adventures filled with hands-on experiences, with traditional activities such as games, crafts, cookery and drama.  Each week has a unique theme to encourage learning and exploration of outdoors.  Our program aims to encourage curiosity and discovery in the natural environment.

Nadine

Hi I am Nadine Davies, founder of Green Living Malta. A mother of 2 boys aged 15 and 2 years old. It was always my dream to get kids back out in nature while at the same time create awareness to all of the benefits nature itself has to offer. Even though I missed the occasion to create this for my older son, life gave me another opportunity to pursue this ambition with my 2 year old. As a parent, I have observed that when my children play outside they are happier, more relaxed, more cooperative, more imaginative and sleep better!

After finishing school I started working in an office as a PA however at the age of 22 I was involved in an accident which left me with serious disabilities. Then 4 years after my accident, my sister died. She was my mentor and I was her shadow. When she died my world died with her. Keeping a positive approach to life and after years of exhausting the best traditional treatments, instead of giving up I sought and found new life through alternative therapy. It was a long journey however along the way I learnt that it is the simple things in life that bring healing and good health. I now live each day filled with energy, optimism and joy and I wish that through my experience I can be an example of what it takes to forge a personal path to your best health.

It all started when I received my first plant at the tender age of six. From then onwards, my love for plants took me to making over yards, balconies, roof gardens and house gardens too!
Leaving a senior management career behind, all I wanted to do is garden, and show others how to garden using simple tools and natural methods without the use of harmful chemicals.
So far, I was able to help both local farmers and also families with my ambition to continue doing just that!

Green Living Malta Clarissa

Clarissa Xuereb

My name is Clarissa Xuereb and I’m a mother of 13 and 9 year old girls. I started kickboxing just after I gave birth to my second daughter. I had always tried to keep active but I used to get bored at the gym, so when my sister came up with this idea to go to kickboxing lessons I just joined with no hesitation. We where lucky to have one of the best teachers on the island Master Sylvio Camilleri who patiently followed each and every step we did. Kickboxing, for me, wasn’t about training to be slim, it became part of my life. I never took Kickboxing to a competitive level, mainly due to the fact that I had two very young girls to take care of, but, I did gain my Black Belt and also my Instructor certificate. Since then I do sessions to groups of ladies and also Workshops with teenage kids. Ladies sessions are cardio sessions where kickboxing moves and techniques are used for body posture and conditioning. Once one masters the technique, this is practiced on punch bags or against an opponent wearing protective gear or holding pads. Now-a-days there are many women practicing kickboxing and other forms of marshal arts. It is also being thought to children. With teenagers, contact is kept to the minimum and sessions are focused on cardio and technique. Kickboxing is sometimes considered to be considered as a violent kind of sport but this is not totally true. There are preset rules to practice this discipline which have to be followed for safety. Teenagers are taught to respect their opponent and to be disciplined. Kickboxing also builds the self esteem.

The exercise program she is hosting for kids and teens offers a large range of benefits to children. Improved posture and spinal alignment are realized as exercises increase the strength and flexibility of the abdominal and inner muscles of the body (the core or trunk). It promotes toned, sleek bodies and improves athletic performance. Through Pilates, children can gain awareness of their body, and learn how to move efficiently and gracefully.

Berit Wolff Roed

My name is Berit, I am a qualified midwife from Copenhagen since January 2010. Ever since my time as a midwife student, I have been passionate about the part of my profession that deals with information and preparation.
My great love for preparing women for what it means to be pregnant and giving birth, and what it does to their body, was the reason why I broke up with the public system and left my safe job as a midwife at Roskilde Hospital in March 2017.
For more than 10 years, I have helped pregnant women find peace and security in their pregnancy as well as preparing for the upcoming birth and upcoming mother role.
Do you want to control the concerns and thoughts? Do you dream of getting a great pregnancy and birth? Would you like help feeling confident in the role of motherhood?
