    Description

    I need help immediately!! :)

    I WOULD LIKE YOU TELLING ME, THE DURATION AND THE DATE OF YOUR VISIT WHEN YOU REQUEST TO COME.

    The last 7 months i have hosted more than 45 persons.. and totally more that 60 in general that last years.
    I like being in contact with people from other countries, cultures, continents.
    People that carry something unique in their heart, as everyone of us !

    I also host people even for just one night, through the couch platform...
    you can find me with the same name : jorge pescador
    you can verify the references in both sides ..
    that would ensure you more on what kind of persos i am.

    so....


    Hello fellow travellers of the planet bus!

    I'm Jorge, I am a single and free 36 years old Greek guy,
    but i have already forgotten this .. :)
    I live in Komotini.
    Αt the region of Rodopi, North Eastern Greece, close to Turkey and Bulgaria.

    i believe, i am and open minded person, flexible and understanding.
    i prefer alternative way of living, thinking, and generally facing life and every of its aspects..
    i am a vegetarian and gradually i am leaving the known as healthy way of food.

    Workaway for me is not just finding helpers at farm's works..

    Helping each other
    Meeting new people
    Making new friends
    the rest is just LOVE

    I like reading, visiting nature, go for camping, spending time on learning and observing..

    I came in touch with seeds and organic cultivation less than ten years ago.. through Peliti (an alternative community for the preservation of traditional seed and the sustainability of mother nature, peliti.gr for more info.)
    but i will always be a pupil at this lifetime lesson..
    I live at a farm, not very far from the city (3 km) .

    My aim is, my self sufficiency, using environmental friendly ways of cultivation.
    I'm positive with the idea of voluntarism and meeting new people, exchanging ideas ways and thoughts...

    Komotini is located in a distance of 2 hours from Thessaloniki (Greece), 4 hours from Sofia (Bulgaria) and 5 hours from Constantinople (Turkey).

    Can be approached by bus and train or hitchhiking :) !!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I think hospitality and humanity
    are such enough in my place..
    that can verify my words.
    Greek food, entertainment,
    positive and educative conversations..
    and of course the mother of every language Greek !

  • Help

    Help

    My free time is not stable and surely not enough!
    Thus i need help
    I need help in weeding at the garden. and a hand with the house works.
    But a farm is not only the garden and the vegetables . .
    Everybody will help in any task, no matter the knowledge he has.
    We are here to learn and to be taught..

    I also want you, to respect the place you will come, and appreciate the efforts that, i and the previous workawayers have already done to keep this place at that level and to bring to a better one..

    it's very important to follow the tasks you are being asked. in the garden and the house rules generally.
    Thus we will have a very positive and productive flow!
