On Sunday 10th April, Maisha opened Maisha Garden, home of Maisha Film Lab for the past 12 years, to the public.
Maisha Garden is a nature archive of African film-makers, masters and students, who have walked its paths.
“We are excited to share our oasis of tranquility and inspiration with the community at large.”
Overlooking Lake Victoria, the Garden is designed as a series of open classrooms in nature to foster discussion, learning and contemplation.
The Garden offers yoga classes, nature walks, creative education programs for neighbouring schools, and is open to the public on Sundays and Mondays for a nominal fee.
“Our unique monthly series of events, MAISHA MOTO, shall offer a spectrum of thinkers, entertainers, gardeners and artists in conversation,” the organisation said in a statement.
Maisha Moto will take place once a month on a Saturday afternoon in the Maisha Kund.
Entrance to Maisha is UGX 5000/-. Children 12 years and under are free.
Yoga classes in the garden began on Sunday, April 10th at 8am in the gorgeous open amphitheater, taught by the renowned teacher, Alex Ochom.
The first class of every month shall be free and from thereafter classes shall be UGX 20,000/- per student.
