Within the scope of the "Community Based Greenhouse" project implemented in the city by Şanlıurfa Metropolitan Municipality and UNHCR, 1.5 million flowers such as Tagetes, Petunia, Vinca, pansies and violets were produced.
1.5 million flowers produced within the scope of the "Community-Based Greenhouse Project" carried out jointly by Şanlıurfa Metropolitan Municipality Disaster Affairs and Immigration Services Department, Parks and Gardens Department and UNHCR will decorate the streets of Şanlıurfa.
The opening of the Community Based Greenhouse project was made by Şanlıurfa Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Zeynel Abidin Beyazgül, Akçakale Mayor Mehmet Yalçınkaya, and UNHCR Southeastern Regional Representative Veton Orana. After the opening, Mayor Beyazgül and his entourage examined the flowers produced by women in the greenhouse area.
Stating that 1.5 million flowers were produced in the greenhouse within the scope of the project developed for disadvantaged families and immigrant guests, Şanlıurfa Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Zeynel Abidin Beyazgül said, "Our Şanlıurfa Metropolitan Municipality is not alone. Our immigrant guests are not alone either. Hope-giving hands, beautiful hands in the world reach here and provide support. The project is very meaningful and very beautiful. Everything about green is very beautiful in the world, we need areas very much due to both drought and climate change. We call it a Community Based production. While our flower production continues here, on the other hand, it has enabled people to work here and employment has been created, which is very important. Violets and other flowers produced in greenhouses will adorn Şanlıurfa and our districts. They will create a beautiful view on the main artery, median strips, parks and gardens. This is very important for the city. It is very important to continue these projects, which serve production, employment and nature and the climate. The continuation of this cooperation is also very important for our Metropolitan Municipality. We will all be happy about this. Our Şanlıurfa will be happy. UNHCR, which makes this investment, will see that it has made the right investment. "We will take the necessary steps together, not for Şanlıurfa, but for the humanity of the world," he said.
UNHCR Southeastern Regional Representative Veton Orana stated that the project was very beautiful and that they were pleased to be in Şanlıurfa, and that the growth of flowers was a fruit of the partnership.
Within the scope of the Community Based Greenhouse project, where disadvantaged local and immigrant guests living in Şanlıurfa are employed, 9 women are employed in 40 greenhouse areas. In addition to flower production, the nursery also produces shrubs, coniferous pines and deciduous tree species in an area of 220 decares.
Flowers and roses grown in different types such as Tagetes, Petunia, Vinca and pansies are passed through various stages and made ready for planting by being watered with modern irrigation techniques in the established greenhouses.
