Ginkgo Labyrinth

Trees for the future

We create a natural landmark – the Labyrinth Park in the shape of ‘endless knot’ symbol to host 10.000 Ginkgo biloba trees.

We unite people sharing our ideas to promote environmental friendliness, conservation and reforestation of wild forests, relict and endangered plants so that together we could find ways to live in harmony with the ecosystem of our environment.

We develop a green space for children and adults and plan to establish a free educational online-platform on environmental literacy basics and tree planting skills.

We create a nursery to grow thousands of seedlings of these relict trees. Our hope is to encourage the come-back of Ginkgo biloba to these areas, the most ancient and marvellous trees on the planet. They can live as long as 3,000 years even in adverse conditions and in a distant future will help Belarusian forests survive in a rapidly changing climate.

We are the people who support the project:

partners, participants, co-thinkers, sponsors and volunteers of

ecological, educational and social Ginkgo Labyrinth.

You are welcome to join us! It is our joint and united effort that can change the world.

GINKGO BILOBA

 

The choice for our nursery was the relict tree that survived from the Mesozoic Era into our times dating back 250 million years. Gingko biloba managed to outlive ancient dinosaurs that fed on its fruits. Ginkgo’s unique properties is what we assume to be project’s many prospects.

THE AUSPICIOUS SHAPE

 

Ginkgo Labyrinth Park has the ‘endless knot’ shape – one of the most important traditional auspicious symbols in Ancient Egypt and Tibet. The endless knot (Sanskrit: śrīvatsa) is symbolic of the interaction of all the events and creatures in the Universe. Thus, the Park will grow into an extraordinary sight drawing visitors because of its unique trees and outstanding shape.
