What about Horticulture experience in Turkey?

This spring in Turkey will be awesome again! What about taking a journey along Turkish history and culture through its horticulture, gardens and botany? If yes, we recommend you to check out the itinerary of the “Horticulture & Culture Tour of Turkey with Gursan Ergil” between 25 April and 11 May, 2014.

 

 

Istanbul, Edirne, Canakkale, Ayvalik, Ephesus, Kutahya and Bursa… This 17-day horticulture tour will take you through; Historical Parks & Gardens, Lectures, Private Landscapes, Arboretums, Nature walks for wild flowers, Organic Farms, Vineyards, Artist Studios, Botanic Gardens, Nurseries and Authentic Local Life while paying a visit to beautiful towns and cities along our way.

.. and our tour leader: Gursan Ergil

Gursan Ergil spent six years living in the United States and studying landscape design, history, and preservation at Harvard University’s Arnold Arboretum, where he later lectured on Islamic Gardens for two years. Ergil currently works as landscape curator at Prince’s Island Museum in Istanbul and he is the author of the book ‘Gardens of Princes Islands’.

 

We Love Nature

Unison Turkey supports protection of green and nature, especially nowadays while Turkish people are in unity and solidarity claiming protection of the green areas. In our opinion, gardens full of trees and plants are crucial for big cities like Istanbul. We love green, we love trees, we love nature.

Here’s a frame from our Garden & Horticulture Tour group in front of a 2000 year-old monumental cedarwood.. It was exciting!
