Its founder aims to demonstrate that sustainable living can be functional and affordable. The site also houses the Solar Electric Club which promotes a range of services to support the entire solar electric ecosystem.


Symbeeosis HQ's Garden: The Hippocratic Botanical Garden of Symbeeosis, which includes over 500 species of plants, reflects the philosophy of its founders; Out of respect for the rich Greek biodiversity and the preservation of the natural environment, the natural topography remains in much of the Garden and blends perfectly with the flowerbeds. The species cultivated in the Garden using regenerative farming methods are in harmony with the rich native flora that exists on the estate. In the context of a holistic view of the function of nature, in the Garden, the flowering plants live in harmony with the bees that are hosted here and together they ensure its sustainability.

The Symbeeosis Hippocrates Botanical Garden is a place of knowledge, aesthetic pleasure, and unique experiential experiences.
