  • Description

    Description

    This is a newborn social cooperative made by people who live and produce in mountainous areas. Our goal is to succeed in a "Worthliving Development" scheme in mountainous areas. Workawayers for us is a great way for reviving our villages, meeting new people, exchanging ideas, having feasts, and cooperating with our visitors. 

    Our members are farmers, livestock farmers, beekeepers, but also carpenters, artists and makers. 

    So, depending on your wants and our availability you can be hosted in three different mountainous villages from Tzoumerka to Zagori and have the opportunity to see different places and people occupied in a great spectrum of activities.
