  • Description


    Establishing a special haven in Crete with organic produce, and a refuge for health and healing.
    A brand new startup. Refurbishing old dilapidated homes, sheds and stables into exciting new habitations.
    Not to mention our intent to plant all sorts of exotic plants and mushrooms to make traditional and original remedies.

    The Mediterranean a short walk away, the mountains which saw the beginning of civilization, infused with the aroma of a million therapeutic fragrant herbs looking proudly down from behind. Our intention is to be a beacon of light and hope, and we invite you to join and support us in this mission, adding your own personal touch.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will be immersed in the age old Greek traditions and ways of living, about planting and the joys of rural living. We hope to inspire our volunteers to become evangelists (not religious) of a new way of living, for their own benefit and the benefit of all. Needless to say is decent accommodation and the world famous Cretan country food, wine, and raki.

  • Help


    Olive picking is over. Planting out vegetables, aloes and other plants and erecting fence around fields. We are also looking at bee keeping. Some building and maintenance skills would be strongly needed.
