Our Ecovillage welcomes new volunteers!
We are a small project in Northern Greece, trying to build a community! We know, it is a pioneering task and it requires strong hands and will for cooperation together with a warm heart!
We attempt to form and accomplish an ecological friendly way of living, in many levels: through natural farming and healthy nutrition, bioclimatic architecture, taking care of the water resources and using compost toilets, solar energy etc. Our life is a daily school, where we try to be conscious in the human interactions and the communication.
- How can we build trust through our way of living together?
- What does it mean solidarity and cooperation?
- What does it mean to live close to nature and to our inner self?
An Ecovillage can be a vibrant and open social proposal - not a theoretical one but a living example - which can be an alternative to the conventional structures of competition and fear.
We are located in a protected green area, on the edge of a beautiful oak forest, next to a gorge. The goerge is available for short excursions. The city of Thessaloniki is 45 km away and the beaches of Chalkidiki area are an alternative for the summer season.

Help with Eco Projects
Generally, the life in an Ecovillage offers many learning experiences on areas of: Natural Farming, healthy nutrition, Natural building, Water retention landscape etc. Also the volunteers have the possibility to learn several social tools for team work. The volunteers can come closer and get to know deeper each other, both in between the volunteers themselves and with the members of the eco-village.
During each week, there are “sharing circles” or “deep listening circles”, which is an opportunity to know us better, to communicate, to listen and be listened. Such circles is the core of our community and we invite you take part!
The volunteers are invited to participate in tasks according to the needs of each season of the year: Gardening, farming, seeding, construction of paths, maintenance of the infrastructure, natural building, construction of a lake, processing of fruits and vegetables, cleaning, making art, etc.
We have the possibility to host up to 4-5 volunteers each time either in our wooden houses or in tents, in closer contact with the nature. We confirm that tents and bedding will be provided to each volunteers.
Volunteering is in exchange base, the volunteers offers work 5 hours per day and we offer 3 meals per day and accommodation. Personal expenses are not covered.
We will accept only those volunteers who wish to cooperate with us for at least 2-3 weeks and get to know our work deeper.
Our Ecovillage is located 40 km S.E. from the city of Thessaloniki, a very beautiful, alive and old city. There are buses from Thessaloniki to the village we are living and the city is connected with the world via train, buses and airplanes. The famous beaches of Chalkidiki are only one hour away by car! Also the canyon with the small river hides a lot of surprises!
