  • Description

    Description

    We are a small community living amongst the villages of Limenaria and Kastro on Thasos Island.
    Currently we are developing a natural farm on a plateau over 50 hectares large. In the area there are centurion wild fruit trees, huge pine trees and lots of oak trees.
    The earth has been untouched for the past 80 years and we have plans to create a primal ecosystem of a great variety of both wild and not wild plants and trees, planted with seed balls, with Fukuoka's natural farming method.
    Along with our efforts to work together towards a new vision of what a wholesome lifestyle means to us, we try to maintain a peaceful and meditative lifestyle.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you will learn the ins and outs of natural farming which will be useful in creating your own natural farm elsewhere!
    Our chief gardener has started 4 farms from the ground up in both Greece and Costa Rica.
    By contributing to what we are currently creating is not only getting your hands dirty, but also developing your own creative abilities.

    Help

    We require people that enjoy doing creative work and being happy!
    This means that our Workawayers are encouraged to give their time to the project, as well as to take time to themselves, enjoying all the pleasures our island has to offer.
    Basic tasks on the farm are:
    making a fence, light construction with wood, planting, making seed balls, preparing land for subsequent planting, making compost and installing an irrigation system.
    Anyone with knowledge about basic construction and building maintenance would also be an asset.

    Accommodation

    We live with the basics. We provide tents. We are vegans. Meals are strictly vegetarian.
    You will be given the choice to either prepare your own meals (ingredients provided) or to eat what we cook.
    we are off the grid, so no fridge. Only enough cells for charging mobiles etc.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    To go back and forth from the farm we will give you ride but only when absolutely needed as it is 14 km.
    We enjoy being around people that are focused on living mindfully, which coincides with the natural farming philosophy.
    So, we kindly ask that while you are with us to refrain from the use of drugs, tobacco, and excessive alcohol.
