    Description

    We are owners of fields with olive, citrus and other trees and we would like the help of volunteers. In addition, they can help us with various farm tasks, such as gardening, clearing fields, pruning. Also some housekeeping would be welcomed!!!!
    All fruits or goods we are collecting from our fields or gardens are used only for our family's consumption and we are not selling them.

    Accommodation is in Volissos, in an apartment fully equipped for all needs (kitchen, bathroom, with towels and sheets). We offer accommodation, breakfast, fruit, snacks for coffee break and one meal a day. The transfer from the city of Chios (port or airport) can be done either by public bus or by arrangement between a host-volunteer. The transfer to the fields is done by our car. It should be noted that the work offered by the volunteers is not at a professional basis. It is for our family needs only. The fields are located in the northwest of Chios Island. Around the area, there are small picturesque villages and the largest of them is Volissos (old medieval village with about 300 inhabitants). There is a doctor's office, pharmacy, post office, ATM, mini market. In the surrounding area, there are many beautiful trails for those who love nature exploration, historical medieval monuments with a long history and the place where the volunteers are hosted is near to the sea. In Chios Island in general a volunteer can learn and see many things (history through the ages, wine and mastic cultivation, museums e.t.c. We can also accept couples of volunteers. We accept dogs but not cats. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL WORKAWAYERS WE WILL HOST HAVE TO HAVE VACCINATION CERTIFICATE OR COVID19 DISEASE CERTIFICATE OR RECENT NEGATIVE RAPID TEST!!!

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    First of all, they travel to a large island in Greece, which is not known for the entertainment of tourists, but mainly for gaining experiences and knowledge about its history, culture, traditions and lifestyle of the inhabitants. For those interested there are many historical monuments, also special local cuisine. The history and cultivation of mastic (visit Museum for Mastic) and also of the famous Chios wine (visit winery). Also, those who love hiking can enjoy exploration of some traditional paths around the area. On the other hand, we also want to know about life in the countries where the volunteers come from, their customs and daily habits (their food, their jobs, their history, their music).
