In the greenest month of the year, April, we celebrate Forest Week – home, source of life and wealth for thousands of plant and animal species. It has been celebrated in our country every first full week of April since April 12, 1925, when the Ministry of Public Education and the Ministry of Agriculture officially regulated the “Holiday of Afforestation” and it later became “Forest Week” “. On this day, there is a prayer service in the temple-monument “St. Alexander Nevsky” for citizens, teachers, students, who then reforest 420,000 forest saplings and 20 kg of seeds in the parks and outskirts of Sofia. The afforestation festival was established by the Forestry Act passed in the same year.
During all these years, the days of the holiday have been dedicated to mass reforestation, involving thousands of people from all over the country.
Happy holiday to the foresters and to all who love the forest and take care of it!
