The latter we have produced our own topsoil which is based on the experience we had in the gardening department and laboratory analyzes, it is of exceptional quality, he points out.

The preferences of the people at this time are for outdoor plants for yards and balconies, while for indoor are cacti and succulents.

We try to have traditional plants, explains Ms. Migirou, who have acclimatized to the Mediterranean climate, thus avoiding possible diseases or infestations that are often brought by foreign plants and of course the positive thing is that whoever comes here can give him advice, concerning either in choosing the right plant or in the care it requires.

At this time the people who come here know a lot, he added, ie he has wasted enough time to read, and he comes very informed, so I think it all worked very psychotherapeutically, but anyway the employment with plants is in programs in schools and in Institutions with children with special needs in the context of their psychotherapeutic programs, that is, it is an occupation that helps a lot in this part.

We have children from the association of people with special needs <I Elpida>, ten years now he stressed. They know a lot of things now, they have specific roles and they help us, and we give them the opportunity for creative and psychomotor employment.
We make plant donations to schools and institutions, upon their request. In fact, in the past, when we had a larger staff in some institutions, we offered free transplants and landscaping. Donations continue, with priority given to these social groups and schools that have environmental programs.

It also functions as a training place for both students for their internship, as well as university graduates, with a permanent or seasonal employment contract.

We continue and produce organically grown wines from our vineyard in Spata, there are three types of white wines, Malagouzia with Athiri, Assyrtiko and Savvatiano, with the brand name <Knowledge>, which apart from here, are also sold in some Super Market, concludes Ms. Migirou.
