    Description

    We are soon to be opening an agrotourism farm in Southern Albania. You can be a part of the plan from the beginning by joining the workaway now! My husband and I came to Albania two years ago and fell in love with the country, we are sure you will too! We recently bought our land and are slowly working on creating a beautiful eco- friendly tourist dream destination. This year we will be focusing on shaping, cultivating and fertilzing the 6 hectares of land prior to the construction phase. We will be identifying natural outcropings, shaping hiking paths, starting terrace walls, planning orchards, and creating vegetable gardens.
    Because the land is currently open and natural, you will be housed in town at a fabulous, friendly hostel. If the weather is unkind you can stay at the hostel and provide assistance to their growing indoor garden or new community space. There is plenty to do, but plenty of time to make new friends, see new places and explore a new culture.
    The land is located just 10 km for the bustling tourist town of Sarande with its beaches and clear blue water. Sarande is close to TWO UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Butrint Archeological Park, and Gjirocaster along with the Blue Eye, Ksamil, and the Greek Island of Corfu.
    Whether you fall in love with the seaside or the countryside we are certain that you, like us, will fall in love with the Albanian people, the friendliest we have even encountered. We hope you will join us on this exciting adventure!

    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.

    We are looking for people who love the outdoors, enjoy gardening and getting dirty. Light building skills are appreciated but not necessary. If you are eco-minded and have knowledge of carbon neutral living come and share it with us! Farm experience will be met with awe and reverence! Most important is the desire to work with others and a positive attitude. Learning on the job is ok. We will be!
