  • Description


    I'm Jorge, i'm 35 years old, but i have already forgotten this .. :)
    i'm a Greek guy and I live in Komotini.
    Αt the region of Rodopi, North Eastern Greece, close to Turkey and Bulgaria.

    i believe i am and open minded person, flexible and understanding.
    i prefer alternative way of living, thinking, and generally facing life and every of its aspects..
    i am a pescetarian at the moment.. but gradually i am leaving the known as healthy way of food.

    Workaway for me is not just finding helpers at farm's works..

    Helping each other
    Meeting new people
    Making new friends
    the rest is just LOVE

    i like reading, visiting nature, go for camping, spending time on learning and observing..

    I came in touch with seeds and organic cultivation less than ten years ago.. through Peliti (an alternative community for the preservation of traditional seed and the sustainability of mother nature, peliti.gr for more info.)
    but i will always be a pupil at this lifetime lesson..
    I live at a farm, not very far from the city (3 km) .

    My aim is, my self sufficiency, using environmental friendly ways of cultivation.
    I'm positive with the idea of voluntarism and meeting new people, exchanging ideas ways and thoughts...

    Komotini is located in a distance of 2 hours from Thessaloniki (Greece), 4 hours from Sofia (Bulgaria) and 5 hours from Constantinople (Turkey).

    Can be approached by bus and train or hitchhiking :) !!
