Maria Komini has been working the Greek land since 1986, being a modern "empirical botanist".
After noticing that sage naturally grows in the mountains of Thesprotia, she decided in 2012 to start the first organic cultivation of sage in Thesprotia.
The cultivation takes place in an area of about 40 acres, where she also grows wild mint, thyme, oregano, honeysuckle, mountain tea, calendula and chamomile.
Sage blooms from April to July, and the best time for harvest is shortly before the plant's flowering.
During the collection, the part of the plant above the junction of the first shoots is removed.
After collection, the sage leaves and stems are transferred to the KORRES Extraction Laboratory.
