      • Gardening in Crete :: From Succulents to other Mediterranean plants
      • From growing succulents to how to create raised garden beds and the challenges of fragrant rose gardening, raising olives and planning for plants and trees that fit the Mediterranean climate.  Horticulaturists and family hobbyists enjoy the climate challenges at sea level,  very hot and dry along the South coast akin to North Africa; then along the Northern Coast lowlands with colder winter winds and the more fickle  weather in the interior mountain ranges - Dikti (Lassithi), the Ida - Psiloritis (Heraklion-Rethymnon) then the White Mountains (Lefka Ori) in Chania. #Crete all over while challenging is essentially easy place to grow your own veggies and flowers, plus Med staples such as citrus, olives and fig trees; with apples and pears on the plateaus. Check out fellow expats at  local gardening clubs.

      • Make Crete Greener
      • Perhaps #Crete has always been eco friendly!  You see, Cretan landscapes today include both alternative energy generation by wind farms and solar panel stations. But did you know that one of the most important contributions to modern society: urban water supply and flushing toilets were actually first used in the  Minoan Civilization. The Minoans inhabited today's Island of Crete and those in the Aegean in the Bronze Age period from c. 3000 BC to around 1100 BC.

      • The Lighter Side! Ελληνικά Ανέκδοτα
      • The Ancient Greeks are responsible for so much we value in common culture today. Take the term, "Humour" (British English), the definition is: the tendency of experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. The term Ανέκδοτα (anecdote) comes from the humeral medicine of the ancient Greeks. In their wisdom they taught that the balance of fluids in the human body is known as humors in Latin. This body fluid controls human health and emotion, then as now. Having a Laugh.... from the Greeks so if you like the posts below then - here is more.

      • Words and Music
      • Crete has a rich culture and heritage. Much of its history has been chronicled down the ages through Cretan Mandinadas - the art of stories told in song.  In modern times, three Cretans became giants in their respective fields. In Music, symphonic composer, Mikis Theodorakis (b. Chios 1925 -), claimed by Crete through his father's Chania family. He is known as a man of peace, having always mixed music with politics.  In Literature, author and poet, Nikos Kazantzakis (b.Heraklion lived 1883-1957) known for Zorba the Greek. And in Public Speaking, Eletherios Venizelos (b. Mournies 1864-1936) regarded as the most prominent Greek politician rising to be Greek Prime Minister 5 times. Please post messages here in the Crete Forum of your favourite music, poems, quotations etc you enjoy from #Crete.
