  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 6
    Ariel, Reiki master, Tai chi and chi gung practitioner and sustainable developer.
    Einav, interior designer and yoga practitioner
    Bar, Nur and Yahel our 3 older sons who no longer live in the farm
    Ella Emanuel our youngest daughter.
    In 2016 we decided to follow our hearts & our dreams, we sold our house and went to travel in Europe and southeast Asia. After 2 years of amazing experiences we decided to settle in the beautiful area of Messinia, Greece and to start building our eco health farm.
    We are currently at the early stages of development of the land and building.
    We have an organic olive grove and vegetable garden and a place for our chickens, bunnies and geese.
    We have an off grid yurt for our volunteers to stay in while they are with us.
    Our eco farm is in a sechluded area with amazing sea views and surrounded with beautiful nature and it's off grid yet it's only 3 km from the beach and the village of Petalidi where you can find local tavernas, cafes, supermarkets, pharmacies and anything you may need.
    We are 15 minutes drive from the beautiful polylimnio waterfalls and 30 minutes from the city of Kalamata and there is much to do and see in our area from beautiful beaches to ancient Greek sites.

    There is a lot of work in our farm and the work changes according to the seasons.
    At the moment we are focusing on setting up our other yurts, a house and the infastructure.

    We love the combination of a good day of work with good people, good food and a good time.

    We are still not living in the land but our house is just a few minutes drive away...
