July Showers Bring Eco Powers!

20/07/13 – Environmental Ambassadors
Heaps of rain in ’Dry’ season is not the only fresh thing happening in Bali these days!  This month also greets 4 new Environmental Ambassadors at R.O.L.E Foundation’s Island Sustainability Education Center (ISEC)!

For the past three weeks our students have been busy as bees, studying Permaculture under the guidance of recently graduated second semester students I Ketut Karang and Ni Wayan Sapen, and our support interns.

As part of the program, our students are also excited to be leading this term’s  series of community-based Permacultre Workshops, offered every Saturday from 1:00-4:00 pm.

The sessions always relate to the week’s subject of study, are children-friendly, and provide the opportunity for our students to flex their mental muscles while teaching what they have learned during the week.

Last Saturday focused on the 3 R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – and oversaw the construction of “Project Nursery Boat” – a  new seedling nursery which we built out of an old wooden canoe using all recycled materials!

This Saturday, July 20th, we are proud to be hosting a lecture from Paola of Eco-Bali Recycling and will using patterns found in nature to inspire a crafting session before hand! The cost is 150 000 Rp/Adult, half price for Indonesian Nationals, and by donation for children!
