There are olive trees and 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 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 helpers 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 doing tasks outdoor very early around 6am. We usely stop working at 11 or 12 am .
Every year, I need 4 people for the olive picking from November 15th to December 15th.
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 only one person ( it rain a lot ) 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 and for the new moon , we gather to sing hymns from ancient Greece .
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.
