  • Description

    Description

    We are a Permaculture Farm, Eco-Culture Educational Center. We are active in the fields of Permaculture systems maintenance and monitoring.We focus on education in Permaculture, Natural Building and Construction woodwork and artistic practices. We run Educational Retreats. Our time is spent in the Maintenance of our food plant nursery with associated gardening within a sustainable system. We maintain a vegetable garden and fruit areas, gathering of our harvest and preparing and conserving it.We educate on the collection and drying of Herbs, preparing natural soaps and disinfectants. Also soil building through composting using various methods. We educate on Therapeutic Nutrition. We tend our animals which include chicken, ducks and our Donkey.
    The estate is 6000 square meter and is located in Northern Peloponnese, 750 m above sea level, right next to the wild forest and 20 minutes from the sea by car. A large variety of fruit trees, vegetables and herbs are currently the main food production, however chicken, ducks, and our beautiful donkey named Maya are also part of our farm (plan to get more animals shortly). We are a young couple two dogs and three cats with the vision to be self sufficient by regenerative and biodynamic agriculture. Different seminars and workshops are held almost weekly that attract people from Greece as well as from abroad.

We want help in the following areas. Collection of our harvest of Fruits and the conserving of it. Collection and drying of Herbs. Soil building through composting and wormeries. Feeding of livestock (chicken, ducks and our Donkey). Cooking abilities and a Driving license would be helpful. We usually ask people to stay for a minimum of 1 month, but what we are also searching for people that would like to stay with us long term up to a year. Note: Apart from the all-around helpers we are currently looking for (1) people with natural building and construction experience since we have quite a few building projects running at this time and (2) people with cooking experience that could help with the preparation of the daily meals for the group. We do ask our helpers to stay for a minimum of one month as we think it is the least time required for this exchange to be worthwhile for both parties.
