The word “Oregano” comes from the Greek words oros, for “mountain,” and ganos, for “joy” meaning “ joy of the mountains”. Since Oregano was originally grown in Greece, it was first used by the Greeks. They believed that this herb was created by the Goddess Aphrodite. She wanted it to be a symbol of joy growing in her garden.
Oregano has become a replacement crop in Turkey to move from Tobacco farms to Organic Oregano farms. These farms grow oregano rurally in the Aegean Region. They are harvested by hand, and dried naturally. The farms contribute to economic prosperity and social well-being, while protecting natural resources such as soil, water and biodiversity.
