The history of the lands and settlements that are part of the Tairove Community is interesting, varied and moving. Many farms appeared in this area during the time of the Cossacks. Sea coast, steppe air, a warm summer and a short winter, picturesque landscapes, fertile soil. And there is an estuary nearby, which was called Sukhy (meaning dry) by the Cossacks because it often dried up as a result of the summer heat.
Every year on October 14, i.e. on the Holiday of the Intercession of the Holy Mother of God and the Defender of Ukraine Day, Tairove – the administrative centre of the united territorial community – celebrates its birthday. The date of its foundation is 1909. It was then that outstanding winemaker Vasyl Tairov established an experimental farm on the eastern shore of the Sukhy Estuary and the southern outskirts of Odesa. Currently, it is the National Scientific Centre “V. Ye. Tairov Institute of Winemaking and Viticulture”.
The rapid development of and construction in the territories began after Ukraine regained its independence. This happened, first of all, due to global trends regarding the expansion of the market for the construction of suburban individual housing.
Economy and Welfare
The economy of the community mainly consists of trade and production activities. The agricultural sector specializes in the cultivation of cereals, technical crops and grapes. Also the most promising branches of the community’s economic life include construction and production of building materials, food and processing industry.
It is a recognized scientific research centre for viticulture, cultivation of new grape varieties and winemaking, which started its activities back in 1905. Its close location to the tourist centre of the city of Odesa makes it possible to join the system of enogastronomic tourist and recreational routes “Roads of Wine and Taste of Ukrainian Bessarabia”.
Festivals are traditionally held every year at the institute to promote the products of viticulture and winemaking: in the spring – the festival “Live Wine of Ukraine”, in the summer – the festival of table grapes “Grape Kaleidoscope”; moreover, a museum of the history of viticulture and winemaking of Ukraine was created there to promote and help people learn more about the Odesa area, about the wine industry, in order to develop the culture of wine consumption.
The Tairove Arboretum horticultural art park was created In December 2021.
The presence in the territory of the community of the sea coast, sources of mineral water, healing mud, salt, oil creates conditions for declaring this recreational and tourist zone a climatic and balneological resort.
There is one preschool education institution, two general secondary education institutions, and one out-of-school education institution in the territory of the Tairove Community. At the same time, the community’s network of educational institutions needs expansion given the number of residents and the rapid development of the community’s settlements.
One of the main principles of the work of educational institutions is the discovery of children’s giftedness in the learning process.
By order of the head of the Tairove Settlement Council, gifted and talented children of the Tairove educational institution receive monthly scholarships.
The Tairove Art School conducts training in various artistic and musical areas. The community also has the Culture and Leisure Centre, which organizes cultural and educational events.
The pupils attending the centre regularly participate in Ukrainian national and international festivals, contests and win prizes there.
Considerable attention is also paid to sports education of youth. The community runs the Tairove Sports Club, where children practice various sports, including rowing, athletics, and martial arts.
