Since the Medieval times, mastic has been the trademark of Chios. This resin in the shape of teardrop that comes from the bark of the mastic trees has been an important source of wealth for the island for many centuries now.
The Municipality of Kardamilia, on Chios, and the organization MESOGEIOS SOS organize an environmental festival to inform pimary and high school students on the situation of the environment today and what we can do to protect it.
The plan to create a Mastic Museum will be discussed in the three-day conference of the mastic producers, October 17-19. The museum will be built near Pyrgi area and will be financed by the European Union.
