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!
