In the Sakhalin Region, employees of the Eastern Mining Company (VGK) laid the “Garden of Generations” in Shakhtersk. They planted 40 blossoming apple trees on the eve of the 76th anniversary of Victory Day.

According to the press service of the Supreme Command, the new garden was laid in memory of those who died during the Great Patriotic War. Deputy Mayor of Uglegorsk Andrey Serov, Deputy of the Regional Duma Alexander Bolotnikov, Chairman of the Council of Veterans of Uglegork Nadezhda Skorobogatova, employees of the Solntsevsky coal mine and the coal seaport of Shakhtersk and their families took part in planting trees.

As Andrey Serov noted, this is the first apple orchard in the Sakhalin Region. In the future, residents will be able to walk among the flowering trees and remember those who gave them a peaceful sky. Alexander Bolotnikov stressed that with every tree planted, we honor the memory of our heroic ancestors and pay tribute to them. 

In total, about 100 people took part in the landings. Two unique apple tree species, Rudolph and Preriefire varieties, will grow in the garden. They will bloom every spring in white, pink and burgundy flowers and in autumn they will give bright red fruits. In order for all the seedlings to take root, the plantings were supervised by the specialists of the Sakhalin plant nursery.

As the director of the Solntsevsky coal strip mine Alexei Sharabarin noted, the VGK, like all Uglegorsk residents, is interested in the prosperity of the region. The company always supports and develops social partnership initiatives to make the life of the area better together. It is noteworthy that it was on the day of the action that the corporate social partnership program "BETTER" was launched, within the framework of which a variety of social projects are being implemented. And the first of them was "BETTER. ECOLOGY".
