The Founder: My name is Sophia Antonopoulou and I am a law consultant for women victims of violence in the Municipality of Halandri. I have also been a teacher for persons with disabilities, teaching the subject “Disability Law”.

The beginning of the website: During the years 2012 and 2013, I participated in the educational programs of the Institute of Agricultural Sciences in Athens and I met different professionals involved directly or indirectly with Aromatic and Medicinal Plants. It was found that most of them faced difficulties and uncertainties, like:
• “Well worth the effort?
• Will we find buyers for our products in Greece or abroad?
• How could we find partners in order to reduce our production costs?
• What are the requirements for being accepted into a cooperative?
• How can we be certified organic?
• How can we make our products competitive and innovative?”

What is Aromafarm: Aromafarm is a Network Community, inspired by the function of essential oils in Aromatic and Medicinal Plants. Essential oil is a mixture of volatile compounds produced by plants to attract bees and protect them from potential enemies. The impressive function we refer to is a natural phenomenon called synergism. Synergism is the harmonious cooperation of hundreds of substances contained in essential oils, which leads to a single result! This interactive and cumulative effect is multiple of the individual action of each substance separately! The synergistic action proves that nothing is gained only by personal effort. Cooperation is the prerequisite for success. So, Aromafarm aspires to bring them all together and make their collaboration easy!

Our country, Greece, the most "Mediterranean" country, which represents the "Mediterranean" dream, with an amazing diversity of ecosystems, is the second country in the world in biodiversity of native aromatic and medicinal plants, with species found nowhere else! So, we should take advantage of this privilege!
