Έλλοβος Community Garden

Aiming for self-sufficiency and a sustainable society

A group of people came together with a common concern for the future: aiming to create a self-sufficient and sustainable society. Located in Nicosia, Έλλοβος seeks the presevation of goods of the land, tastes, smells, beneficial qualities and cultural values in order to deliver them it to future generations.

The interaction, communication, shared knowledge, experience and cordiality are the main interests of this initiative. They base their activities on respect for others, starting with respecting ourselves in order to obtain collective action and promote participation among the community. They believe that harmonious coexistence between people and their surrounding nature will encourage participation. Creativity, critical views and conscious thoughts gather in their meetings creating new ways to share the community garden. They learn together the necessary knowledge to manage both the natural resources and what the land offers to them.
