  • Description


    We are a greek russian family with one 14 years old daughter. We lived in the countryside of Laconia, southern Peloponnese, for 6 years since we moved from the big citylife. We now moved to Athens but we like to spend as much time as possible in our country house. We enjoy company of friends with kids and we have been travelling in Europe as well. We maintain an olive grove with 700 trees and we welcome some help during harvest season (December- January). We welcome anybody with the right skills and with a positive intention to offer some help.
    We initiated a multipurpose space and founded the Porto Grana Hub, which aims to stand as a melting pot to all worldschoolers and homeschooling families travelling the world and visiting Greece. We need extra help from educators to facilitate workshops,with an open mind, to allow kids to freely follow their own choices when it comes to learning and playing.

    We also run the first bike lending club in Greece and we always need that extra hand to help us with the maintenance of the bicycles.

    We rely exclusively on a plant based diet (mostly vegan)
