  • Descripción


    A small  organic farm (4.000 sq. meters) situated on the north west of the island of Chios, where a great variety of vegetables is grown. There are also trees (Olive trees, orange, lemon, Chios tangerine, apricot, plum, loquat, pear, apple, fig, pomegranate, walnut, etc).

    The farm has recently turned into a small animal shelter. One needs to be an animal lover to come here and have some knowledge of how to handle them. All dogs are well behaved and easy to handle. A number of cats finds refuge here too.

    I have a small flower garden and multiply and grow flowers.

    The Volissos area is great for nature walks and the sea offers great swimming during summer. A botanist’s paradise during spring. We are about 1 km away from the village of Volissos. in a very little inhabited area, 800 m away from Managros beach and 40 km away from the main town of the island, Chios.

    The production of the vegetable garden is for friends and family, and a part is sold locally.

    There is WI-FI internet access at the house.

    MINIMUM stay: 2 months

    Profile of volunteer: over 20

    Accommodation type: Two room apartment with kitchen and bathroom on 1st floor of the cottage, with separate entrance

    I am semi-vegetarian (I eat fish occasionally), but I do not have a problem with people who eat meat. I do not provide it though. I provide basic ingredients (extra fresh vegetables from the garden, milk, cheese, oil, bread, eggs etc).

    Specific helping and/or living rules
    I am looking for volunteers who after a period of 2 weeks of learning the basics and routine of the farm, can take care of it (animals and plants), while I go away for 2 months to work elsewhere.

    Committed and responsible people and mature volunteers are welcome. A car will be provided. Driver's licence necessary. Pets are welcome.

    This is a drug and excessive alcohol free farm. A minimum stay of 2.5 months is required

    Months Needed: All year round

    Chios is a beautiful island with lots of history and fortlike villages. It is the only place in the world where the gum mastic is produced. There are lots of nature walks around the area, lots of wild flowers for the flora enthusiasts mainly during winter and spring.
