This is Andreas, Peggy, and our three year old Dimitra, we live in our six-acre farm in harmony, enjoying the beauty and the presents of natural life.We care to share what is going on here with other people. If you would like to visit our home please READ CAREFULLY THE WHOLE TEXT and ask yourself
- if you understand what is going on here and
- if you find all of it attractive to you
This way you will only spend 10 minutes of your time and not the two weeks of the minimum visit that we accept
Our house is a Caravan. Around that there are an open living room - kitchen, a geodesic dome toolhouse, a chicken coop, apiary, nursery, kitchen gardens, water harvesting systems, composting systems, and the land is full of young trees and wild cereal field areas
The farm is equipped with a 200lt solar water heater for hot water all year long, outdoor composting toilet, solar panels for power autonomy in 12V, bicycle for visits to the nearest village or rides around the area,
The nearest village (2km) is called Arla. It has a mini market, a bakery, grill house, 3 café restaurants with free wifi, a pharmacy and a tool shop. The nearest city with a full market is Kato Achaia (8 km). Even though the farm is relatively close to the sea there is no sea view. However from here, one can see the beautiful mountains of Peloponnese, Erymanthos, Santameri, Mazaraki, and Movri.
Here, we work on:
Natural Farming, Permaculture, Natural Building, Chicken Breeding, Apiary, Tree nursing, Eco-Community, Ecology, Autonomy and non-monetary management, Mycology, Upcycling, Music, folk art and crafts.
We need people that after reading the above will feel like spending some of their time here in order to interact with us and with the farm’s elements.
We as administrators of the farm ask for:
-RESPECT for all kinds of life that cohabit in the farm
-Respect for all infrastructures and means and tools that have been made or obtained with a lot of effort and are absolutely vital for our survival here.
-Human interaction away from the logic of transaction (monetary or non-monetary) for us every egg, every drop of honey and every piece of knowledge, experience, infrastructure and means that we will share with you has incalculable value. However, we value incalculably every second that you, our guest will devote through your heart to deal with preserving, upgrading, building and supporting our farm and its causes. We believe that useful knowledge is like compost. Useless unless you disperse it.
So we are really looking forward to placing YOU in our everyday activities. Be it watering the garden, feeding the chickens, building a dome, cooking, playing music, making a long conversation on how to change the world, we want to work together, interact, teach and learn with you.
Establishing mutually beneficial relationships (that lead to universally beneficial relationships) is the ultimate cause of all our efforts. We strongly believe that mutually beneficial relationships once established will be proven by far better than the common mutual exploitation relationships that we are familiar with in our modern society.
Thus we are expecting you, great people, to build together with us the new narrative of mutually beneficial relationships and post it for the next to find and upgrade
P.S. We cohabit with five cats and a dog that are absolutely friendly with children and other pets. Children and pets with similar behavior are always more than welcome to the farm.

Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten
Travelers will be taught traditional and modern organic gardening techniques, permaculture and natural building, meet new people. Moreover Apiary, nursery,tree care and guidelines to observe the nature with its patterns and miracles. The options for (perma)cultural exchange are too many to mention here provided that the Travellers have an appetite for it. Please refer to our description for more.
*****AFTER ONE YEAR IN WORKAWAY It has been proved to us that the BEST HELP we can receive is from people that want to LEARN THROUGH DOING or BE PRODUCTIVE FOR THEIR OWN REASONS BY DOING and the WORST HELP that we desperetaly WANT TO AVOID is from people that need a place to stay and are willing to offer help as an exchange for hosting .In this case their work has created double or triple the effort and the worries that we would have if we did the task ourselves.
Also we realized that we can't offer a schedule of 3-5 hours of work per day as we are NOT A COMMERCIAL FARM and we dont have a constant daily workflow. The visitor here will probably be asked to visit the chicken coop three times a day ,feed the cats for another 5 minutes, participate another 20 minutes in preparing a meal or washing vegetables and dishes, collect flowers if it is a flower collecting day, dig and plant trees if it is a tree planting day, chill out when we all chill out, and to connect with our everyday habbits and schedule as much as possible.
As a general approach we ask for about 4hours of help for six days per week (max. 25 hours per week) but we can be flexible and adjust that according to everyones needs. Apart from that we ask for participation in table setup, maybe in salad cutting or other meal preparation assistance, in bread making and baking, and defenatelly in the washup and cleanup after meals.
So we are really looking forward to placing YOU in our everyday activities. Be it watering the garden, feeding the chicken, cooking, playing music, making a long conversation on how to change the world, we want to work together, interact, teach and learn with you. The tasks are just the excuse for getting closer to each other under a common cause.
Dieser Gastgeber bietet Sprachaustausch an
We have developed a two hour course to teach the Greek alphabet. Greek language is phonetic. Which means that all the information one needs to pronounce a greek text is in the text itself. You only need to learn the sound that every letter produces. We are very proud to share this knowledge with every visitor and have succeded to do so with a few so far.
For the moment hosting can be provided during the dry season (summer, half spring and half autumn) in tents.Mobile homes RVs and Caravans are more than welcome too. The guests can use the infrastructures and means of the farm (toilet, kitchen, shower, outdoor living room, bicycle, tent area) taking up the responsibility of their personal safety and proper use of them. As for food we follow the old Greek moto "where four people can eat, six can eat as well" which means that we will provide portions of our own meals (three a day). We are mainly vegetarians but not strictly. Eggs and vegetables are usually enough and we shop responsibly on our way to autonomy step by step. You are always welcome to cook something different or extra using up whatever available, or shop yourselves something from the village. However we will have to guide and supervise you through our kitchen tools.

Considering you talk about exchange in two ways, maybe you have to ask yourself what you didn't achieve or understand. Sometimes humans relations are more complicated than a "feedback" in a digital network. This reflects your less of courage and your arrogance.
