2011: (March 4th) Municipality of Oreokastro, Thessaloniki Peripheral Unit, Central Macedonia Periphery
Oreokastro Municipality, March – April 2011
In the greater area of the Municipality of Oreokastro, near Thessaloniki, 4.000 saplings were planted during the months of March and April 2011. The initial phase of a much larger campaign for the Municipality of Oreokastro, which is being implemented with funds from “Plant Your Roots in Greece”, took place on the 19th and 20th of March. The planting activities at the Municipal Community of Oreokastro (in the Asprovrysi area, near to the exit to Melissohori), were carried out with the participation of members of the Hunting Association of Ampelokipi, local volunteers, town councilors and municipal staff, students and even young children. They all enthusiastically chimed in with the message: “We are planting our Roots”.
