    Hello everybody!

    We're a Greek-Italian couple that after living around Europe for several years, decided to move back to the South, close to the warm breeze of the dear Mediterranean sea. Come to help us and to enjoy our ecological family farm!
    We are located in the western part of Halkidiki (50 km South of Thessaloniki).
    Check below the details!

  • Arbeit


    We are currently working on the guest part of our house, we chose to work with rather natural materials & techniques. Here you may find, briefly, some of the next tasks we'll be working on the next months:

    - internal plastering
    - small adobe bricks constructions (ex. cob sofa, internal walls)
    - earthen floor
    - tadelakt


    Beware: it is a repetitive work, which can be tiring. But it is also fun and definitely satisfying!

    Bring clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.



    Beside our worksite, we planted quite a lot of trees and a small vegetables garden on our land, we try to grow them following the permaculture idea.
    We also work and help maintaining the olive fields of Yiannis' family (not permaculture based), from March until November lots of different works needs to get done there.
    (Olives collection: from September to November)

  • Unterkunft


    SLEEPING: You will be sleeping on the field where the house is located (you can plant your tent - we can give you our tent & all necessary bedding as well if you prefer - or park your motor-home).
    Vanessa works from home (from 10am until 7pm, Monday to Friday, more or less) so it is not possible to host digital nomads or share the space in the house during her working hours.

    WATER AND ENERGY: There is running water, a home made basic shower and a compost toilet.
    There is electricity (off grid with solar panels and batteries) to charge your devices, just during cloudy days we will have to be a bit careful with the consumption.
    The data plan with the internet provider is limited so wi-fi is not available for the moment.
    For the laundry, you can hand wash your clothes in a bucket (we can provide washing product). We share a washing machine with the family in a house in the nearby village (so we make around 2 laundries per month), when the time comes, you can put your clothes together with ours.

    FOOD: We are going to share meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and the food is going to be homemade, seasonal and mostly vegetarian (meat and fish only occasionally). For the days off, if you stay around, we can provide a cold simple meal (ex. bread, cheese and olives). No help is needed for cooking.

    ANIMALS: We have a dog (Junam) always staying at the field/ worksite, she's very friendly and loves company. She does not get along well with other dogs so unfortunately it's not possible to host volunteers with pets.
