Cartu Foundation plans to arrange a botanical garden on 83.5 hectare land plot in the village of Ganmukhuri, the Zugdidi Municipality of the Samegrelo-Zemo Svaneti Region.
On June 21 the Zugdidi Municipality voted the issue of issuing a due permission and set up a legal entity of public law – Ganmukhuri Botanical Garden.
Lasha Gogia, head of the Zugdidi Municipality Council, noted:
“There is marshland on the project place. The project is being developed. However, timeframes for the botanical garden creation has not been determined yet. The project investment volume will be specified later”.
The mentioned territory was registered on the balance of the Economy ministry, but later it was transmitted to the Zugdidi Municipality by decision of the National Agency of State Property.
