  • Description

    Description

    Everything are relevant because of the moving free scedule so have no certainties .

    While staying in my village, the traveler can get to know the village , the scene of Athens nearby that you can visit anytime and do some activities together.
    Help would be appreciated in order to maintain the house and the garden. Also any projects, like any diy, etc. to make the house and the living more sustainable, could be with your help! Gardening, construction, paint jobs, farming, etc. would be great!
    I spend most of my time in the property, with just some short trips to athens..

    We consume what we produce and provide to you for free. Also we exchange with other friends in the village. Work is not our priority . I m interested mostly for the cultural excange of every country traditions also because there is no time left for traveling ..

    There are several farming and constructions tasks.
    The main task is cooperate at the basic daily needs of every individual. So thats the most important. Its one have to sustain himself . The work is not the main issue for cooperating but the personal needs we have each of us.

    Furthermore

    Some examples of things that you may meet during your visit here are the following:

    Take care the grain ,chickpeas , lentils , fava beans , white beans ,( κουκια greek) olive oil ,olives , vegetables . We also have chickens , a dog and a cat ;) .So we can gother olives and cut the brunches , we plant beans and trees , we cut the grass in spring , we feed the chickens and take the eggs , we plant and water vegetables sometimes. take care the vineyard, dig the ground ,plant olives , paint and construct the houses ,
    carrie heavy bags with legumes of 20 kg ,make table olives , 🫒 , we constuct things so more people can be hosted in my place .
    Its of it can take 5 minutes a day or 5 hours a day .
    And more ...
    . The work always not important as said.
    And more if you are in the mood...

    For me it's easy to host one person , but if you take care for your own food i can host more than one at the same time .
    . We are located at a greek village that anyone who would like to chill can find his own way live at peacefull countryside place with no distraction except my dog and maybe from the old grannies of my neighbourhoud.



    Ps (comes first):

    1. with new prices of electricity on the winter months for heating will be 5 times more expensive so i can't afford to host more than one person for December, January and February on this planet).
    2 And also ..boredomness and impolite politeness is needed. ))

    Help

    You are helping only if you are waking up happy in the morning !
    We can always have a cultural exchange which is the most important reason for me here .

    But also for example:
    We can clean the house.
    We can clean the garden.
    We can help our neighbors.

    Or
    We can plant olives . Gother olives . Plant chickpeas , lentils , fava beans , κουκια , cut the bad plants also.
    We cut the brunches bad or good.
    We can constract new parts of the house so we have more place for more people to stay and help.
    Or more seasonal example:
    September we gather pomegranates in the garden. Plow the field. Pick grapes.
    October until December we gather olives.
    Lop off the trees and clean the garden. Prune the olive trees. Carrie legumes. Carrie and plant barley one day. Gather eggs. Feed the chickens. Pomegranades.. almonds..
    Plant lentils.
    January we sit in the fireplace:) and some extras also.
    February plant chickpeas. Plant olives.
    March and April cut the grass in the legumes.
    In the summer we harvest.. clean spare legumes.. Water olives..

    Or more daily example:
    Prepare your own food and then...
    its up on you only fully and only:))

    The winter is hard because of the cold and expensive so think better before requesting )).

    there are always things to do if you like to keep yourself busy and lend a helping hand .
