A garden in the urban landscape of the municipality of Papagou-Holargos was created and since last week it produces beauty and action from the people who work it. And these people are people with disabilities working with specialists and volunteers.

The Municipal Authority utilized the free space that exists just outside the Social Grocery and Pharmacy and together with the Association "Equalact Social, Action for Social Equality-Disabled", aim both at promoting the social and professional integration of people with disabilities, as well as and in promoting volunteerism and environmental awareness.

The "Urban Garden - BIOHABILITY", as it was named, was inaugurated last Sunday and is addressed to adults with disabilities up to 25 years old, who live in the municipality. There are now plantings and crops, while there will be a plant bazaar, the proceeds of which will be used for the needs of the program and the beneficiary growers.

"It is a new project of our municipality, which aims at the social and professional integration of people with disabilities. A program, which is implemented by the municipality in collaboration with the Equalact Social Association and with the support of valuable volunteers, such as psychologist, social worker, biologist, etc. ", says the mayor Elias Apostolopoulos to APE-MPE and then reports :

"Our goal through its creation is employment, the cultivation of skills, the strengthening of ties with the wider community, the fight against social prejudices, as well as the promotion of volunteerism and environmental awareness. The Urban Garden - Biohability, of which we are very proud, is a small paradise, entering which, the first thing you see, is the joy and satisfaction, painted on the faces of those who participate in the program. In any democratic and healthy society, all citizens have the right to autonomous and equal access and participation in all its areas of activity. "Disability should in no case be a deterrent to the personal, professional and social development and action of the person who carries it and this is clearly proven in the garden of our municipality, which has already borne fruit."

And Mr. Apostolopoulos concludes by saying: "All the work in the area, which includes artistic interventions, was done by volunteers and by the beneficiaries of the program, under the supervision of the municipal councilor Maria Dimitriadou-Karasimopoulou and we will gladly accept those "Our fellow citizens want to join this great group of people, either as beneficiaries or as volunteers."
