For all of us, the National Garden has been the ideal place for a break from everyday life or for a walk among the lush vegetation. Bodossaki Foundation helps this green heart in the centre of Athens to keep beating, and supports the operation of the National Garden by covering part of its operating expenses.
In their own words:
“The National Garden is a great monument of our city, an important historical garden with numerous functions and special features. One of its most important characteristics is certainly its biodiversity, and the trees are the most important organisms of this small and clearly delimited ecosystem.
The contribution by Bodossaki Foundation to our effort to ensure the longevity and protection of the trees of the National Garden and the safety of its visitors and workers, is therefore very important.”
Kostas Bakoyannis, Mayor of Athens
“With the grant from Bodossaki Foundation, we were able to assess in detail the condition of 440 selected trees of the National Garden. Our collaboration with the specialist team of Italian tree growers has contributed decisively to the transfer of know-how and has strengthened our knowledge about modern methods of tree management in urban areas.”
