  • Description


    This is an agritourism destination in the south of Albania near to Corfu and the land border of Greece. We just finished our busy season with tourists and now with the weather cooling off its time to plant trees, winter garden, tackle some building projects for the animals and other landscaping.

    We ask our volunteers to stay for three weeks to get a feeling of a good team and the pride of seeing projects finished, for you to leave with a good feeling of accomplishment.

    We provide a shared room and a staff kitchen with basic pantry items included for self-cooking.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We spent a combined 40 years working in Los Angeles Entertainment Industry so we can share many stories with you. We are artists and artists always learn from each other. I also ran a successful NGO in Animal Welfare in the states. We speak pretty good English and are currently learning Shqip (that's Albanian in Albanian) and can study together out in the field. As new ex-pats we have a unique view on changing and committing to a new lifestyle. Side trips can be arranged to visit unique local Albanian villages hidden away from the touritsy areas and engage directly with the traditional Albanian culture. We hope to inspire you in one way or another to follow your dreams.
