1. Aleppo: The Town Council of Aleppo has assigned a 2,500- metre plot to the Islamic Culture Foundation within the 42-acre Assabil Public Park, which dates from the times of the French Protectorate, to create a garden with landscaping and botany of Andalusí inspiration fitting in harmoniously with its surroundings.
2. Jerusalem Andalusí Botanic Garden: The city of Jerusalem is creating the Jerusalem Andalusí Botanic Garden. This garden will re-create the collections, philosophy, morphology and traditional irrigation systems of traditional Andalusí gardens, focusing on the conservation of Mediterranean, and particularly Palestinian, flora.
