Qattan Foundation in Ramallah, Palestine. Learn how to heal and cleanse the land by seed bombing the soil, with seed balls formed of clay, compost and seeds.
A partnership between Shubbak Festival and The Mosaic Rooms, this workshop will explore childrens’ understanding of solidarity in The Mosaic Rooms’ Garden.
Mohammed Saleh is a Permaculture designer, activist and educator who holds two degrees in both Psychology and Musicology. He has been working in the field of sustainability for about a decade. During his five-year stay in Turkey, Mohammed operated and managed an off-the-grid ecological educational centre in the Ide Mountains of Çanakkale which lit his passion for self-sufficient living. As soon as he came back to Palestine, he founded, Mostadam Eco Design, an eco-social enterprise that provides ecological solutions through implementation, education, design, and consultancies tailored to fit the local culture, climate and challenges.
In the last years, Mostadam has brought innovative methods in greening the urban environment, bringing nature back to the city, and hearts of the people, using various techniques like vertical gardens, the Top Pot, small food forests, edible landscaping and Aquaponics (soil-less farming) both to schools and the private sector.
