"As an agricultural scientist, I have been working with farmers for over 15 years. I have observed the use of fertilisers and pesticides for many years. At some point, I felt the need to change something. So in 2017, I started growing my own herbs." Christos Thanopoulos and his family live in the port city of Patras. His fields are situated at the foot of Mount Erimanthos. "The climate and soil here are remarkably well suited for producing aromatic herbs. I often take my children along to the fields on weekends so that they can foster a relationship with nature. I want them to see, touch and smell the plants."
