    Description

    (November)


    I have an organic garden and small olive grove. Helpers are needed for general up-keep of organic garden with vegetables, for maintenance of land, preparation work for the olive harvest and for olive harvesting and for odd jobs.
    In the months of July and August it is too hot to work, so I can only host at the cottage, self catering in exchange for few jobs.
    The olive harvesting season is between end of October and middle of November.

    The olive grove with a cottage (1min. from the beach) is 18 km from my house in a small village (Alissos).
    We have about 50 olive trees and some citrus trees there.
    We go there by car. People can also stay at the cottage. There is a train and bus service.
    Hiking, beaches, coffee shops all within the area.

    All our production is for personal use.
