  • Description

    Description

    Many years ago I realized I wanted to change life, I started looking for alternative ways of life to become more eco-friendly and as much self-sufficient as I could. The journey began with learning natural building techniques in which I mastered Tandelakt plastering and other ancient techniques of building. I also produce extra virgin organic olive oil.

    I traveled a lot to learn about farming and now I am practicing organic farming in 1 1/2 acres in Northern Greece outside of a small city called Chalkidona.

    In the farm I'm producing lots of organic food with the goal of being self-sufficient but also sell some of it so the farm works smoothly. There are many natural building projects in progress in which I need help.

    I'll be happy to host passionate workawayers and teach them as much knowledge and skills as I learned from my masters.

    NB. Any automatic message will not be answered. Please read the profile carefully and then send me a message and I am not close to Sea. When you answer my message many many days later everything we speak is cancelled.

    Accommodation

    There are two types of accommodation in the farm.
    1) One is in tents.
    2) The other is in the house.
    It depends on how many workawayers I will host at the same time.
