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.

Our activities, both for school children and adults are held at Vincent’s Eco Estate in Mġarr – a unique natural estate that offers the best outdoor experience for you and your child.

Together, through our summer and winter eco programmes, we will do numerous creative crafts under trees, understand the benefits of nature and how we can use these at home and participate in educational workshops.

Our summer club program gets kids outside and connects them with nature! It 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.

Nadine

Hi I am Nadine Davies, the founder of Green Living. I am a mother of two boys aged 17 and 4 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.
After finishing school I worked as a PA in an office of auditors however at the age of 22 I was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident which left me with serious disabilities. Following this incident, three years later my sister died tragically. She was my mentor and I was her shadow. When my sister died, my world died with her as I lost my zest for life and to make matters worse I later also developed fibromyalgia (a rheumatic disorder that causes muscle tenderness, pain and fatigue). Keeping a positive approach to life and after having exhausting years of traditional treatments, instead of giving up I sought and found new life through alternative therapy, such as practicing Yoga, following a more healthy and balanced diet, while also being creative in my spare time, (as when you are being creative you are using the right side of your brain which helps promote intuition). It was a long tough ride and thanks to this journey I found the discovery of Eco Therapy (spending more time in nature) to be the most beneficial and this is what led me to be inspired with the creation of Green Living.
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.

Nadia Cassar

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!

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.

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 practised on punch bags or against an opponent wearing protective gear or holding pads. Now-a-days there are many women practising 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.

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?
