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 :) !!
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
i think hospitality and humanity are such enough in my place.. that can verify my words.
Greek food, entertainment, positive and educative conversations.. and of course the mother of every language Greek !
My free time is not stable and surely not enough !
I mostly need help in gardening and weeding.
But a farm is not only the garden and the vegetables . .
Each one will help at the part that can do it better no matter the knowledge
Greek, English, Spanish
There is a shared room for volunteers.
Food is included and of course you can cook anything you want ;)
There is a big market in a 300m distance for any of your personal needs.
5 hours work/day 5 days/week.
The house is located close (500m.) to the east entrance of the highway for Istanbul,
at 200m. from the nearest road, so it's a quiet enough place.
There is a big garden/yard
Since there are trees and large place for this.
Thrace, is a very beautiful part of Greek region.
Rivers, mountains, sea, ancient places, in a 30min. distance from the city center.
A good variety of places in the city for coffee and having a cosy time...
