  • Description


    Join us to create a permaculture food forest on our property on the wild and magical island of Samothraki. We are Symose a Musician-Percussionist and Andriana a Shiatsu and Sound Therapist. We are grateful of being able to live in this beautiful place surrounded by nature. We bought the property, which is about 3000 sqm, 4 years ago, renovated the old house and are currently preparing the garden. Since the property is located on a slope and the top soil washes away with every rainfall we created swales to retain the rainwater and planted fruit trees along them. Besides our big project we love to cook and share a good meal with beautiful people.
