  • Description

    Description

    I am located in the north west of the Cretan island of Greece. I am looking for one or two persons who love nature and working in the fields for two weeks or more. The farm has about 200 olives trees to harvest(November-December), clean, burn branches and trimm.
    There is also an Organic garden to take care and look after as well as cleaning the place from bushes and grass. I have some chicken for the eggs .
    I also have a mongolian yurt, a small house with kitchen , bath and toilets and a caravan for the volunteers . There is enough space to set a tent as one's wish for housing. This is a place I have been preparing since 10 years ago and there is a lot of small things to do , to make it even better. Good hand workers are welcomed.
    This site is located in the wonderful countryside of Crete, 25kms from Chania (as well as a few kilometers of small typical villages). We have a great view of the White Mountains of Crete just in front of the place and a very green landscape all around.
    Our summers are very hot so we need to start working outdoor very early around 6am. We usely stop working at 11 or 12 am .
    I broke my leg 4 times during the past 20 years , so to be able to live my dream in the middle of the nature , I imperatively need help because after all this fractures, my leg developed a painful osteoarthritis.
    I am not handicap but am no longer able to do everything I did before . For the winter , I need responsible and experimented people , handyman or woman and able to make decisions .
    With a group of friends , we do for the full moon a beautiful ceremony .
    If someone wants to stay long and there is compatibility of character and ideas, he or she will be more than welcome .Because of animal abuse, I am now a vegetarian.
