    May 2022
    OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE FOR A COUPLE OR TWO FRIENDS
    Working in gardens and vineyards for the month of May.
    Your help involves help in (organic) spraying, weeding and watering. Working knowledge (or willingness to learn) of a weed whacker is appreciated. We are looking for a couple of helpers that aren't afraid of hard work and really want to be on a beautiful Greek island at the best time of year. There are great hikes and beaches to enjoy on days off and afternoons.
    Accommodation will be at both the Red Tractor Farm guesthouse near the port of Korissia and at a stone cottage near the capitol town of Ioulida
    Meals are provided. Because spring is a VERY busy time, if there are days where we have had no time for cooking meals, all expenses for groceries and supplies will be paid for.
    Thank you!

Looking for self motivated individuals for this unique opportunity. Climbing trees not necessary but certainly a plus.
