Hippocrates Garden, respecting the environment and wildlife, participates in voluntary programs of all environmental organizations in Greece. We are a member of sea turtle Careta-Careta protection Organization.
We also co-operate with the association Anima for the Protection and Welfare of Wildlife. Furthermore, through our programs in schools, we had encouraged recycling, and by now we have managed to recycle 1 tone of materials!
We would like to thank the pupils of Antimachia’s schools for their support and cooperation to this program and their sensitivity for a clean environment!
Pottery is one of the oldest crafts, used by primitive people in everyday life. Numerous excavation findings (household items, decorative objects etc) prove that clay, being the primary material found in abundance, led men to use it in many ways. Fired earth was a discovery of immense value. The creativity and imagination of man with the use of hands and four elements of nature Soil – Water – Air – Fire, resulted in the birth of the art of pottery.
The term “Ceramic” means objects made from clay, stood in various ways, dried and finally became stable and unchanged under the influence of fire. The Pottery was one of the most famous arts in Greece because of its usefulness in everyday life.
