GROL Garden started as a small garden growing cucumbers and sunflowers mid-summer 2012.
While researching information about organic gardening, I came across Permaculture. I stumbled across a video of Quail Springs.
I checked out their website and discovered that they had an upcoming PDC, which I enrolled in along with my friend.
I returned to Cyprus in January 2013 and developed a plan to take the Garden in a serious direction. Since then, our Garden Project has taken on a few managers and hosted over 100 volunteers from around the world.
Our project is still quite young, but growing rapidly. We produce herbs, micro greens, a wide variety of vegetables.
Our team currently consists of 4 permanent managers and a steady stream of international volunteers.
In 2015, we hope to host educational hands-on workshops and permaculture internships as we build our eco-village and set up a food-forest.
