The Cliffs Interpretation Centre welcomed members from SPERO, a specialised training and activity centre for blind and visually impaired persons on Thursday 30th March. This recreational outing was focused on creating more environmental awareness on the natural heritage of Dingli Cliffs and the surroundings.
An explanation of the varying local produce that is currently found in season was followed by a short walk to St. Mary Magdalene Chapel. Whilst enjoying the fresh air of Dingli Cliffs, the participants who took part in the walk could appreciate the touch and smell of certain wild plants and their valuable use for cooking or medicinal purposes.
Upon visiting the countryside, especially during this time of the year it is clear that Dingli Cliffs cannot only be enjoyed solely with the sense of sight…Smelling and touching wild plants continue to remind us of the importance of appreciating the countryside even more. The Free tours organised by The Cliffs Interpretation Centre offer a unique local experience of the unique blend of ecology, history, culture and local produce of Dingli Cliffs.
