    Description

    Hey there!
    My name is Petros and i live in Greece, on a beautiful island called Evia. Me and my father decided to move out from the city and create a farm. We've already made chicken and rabbit nests, planted olive trees, grapes, blackberries, raspberries and many more. We got 4 beehives, We have a permaculture garden, too!!
    We would love to be as much self sustained as possible (no electricity, water, heat depended), so any person with that kind of experience is more than welcome.
    We have some projects we want to be done with cement like a pizza oven, a fireplace and plaster, repair, paint the outside surface of the house.
    We plant seeds and trees all year long
    We look for organic matter in the forest or gather mushrooms, wild fruit or herbs
    We gather fruit for sustaining them for winter, olives for olive oil in November, grapes for wine in September, figs in August
    Gather and chop wood for the stove
    We create raised beds for planting organic seeds
    Make compost!
    Also vermiculture is an experiment for me right now
    My interests except from these are:
    Cycling, yoga, rock climbing, the sea, chinese medicine, cooking
    Work here, may be hard, but will be funny, educative and rewarding as well
    The goal is to create a FOOD FOREST !! !! !!
