Our activities so far
Community of Trees (Hellenic name Κοινωνία των Δέντρων) was founded in September 2012 under the form of a non-profit company whose main purpose is the development of environmental and cultural projects.
CoT‘s first project was the participation in the Eleonora’s Falcon Project in the island of Andros (dates), subsidized by the European funding program “LIFE”.
In 2015 CoT started the Koumas Project, the creation of a Forest-Park ecosystem at the heart of Patmos that will include exclusively indigenous trees. The same project includes the repurposing of the old Koumas stone-quarry and the rehabilitation of its surrounding land.
In Spring 2016 a team of scientists from the Institute for the Mediterranean Forest Ecosystems – a division of the Ministry of Agriculture – visited Patmos for site surveillance, soil analysis and listing of the native trees. In Autumn 2016 they delivered to CoT the fruits of their work in an elaborated pre-study which constitutes a very important basis for the Koumas Project. More info can be found –> here.
In Summer 2018 CoT organized a piano recital for pianist Emily Mesko, at the Apocalypse Amphitheatre of Patmos. A CD album was also produced by CoT.
In Winter 2018 CoT submitted the Koumas file at the Municipality of Patmos for approval and rental of the land.
