Hi to all workawayers.
I own a small but busy organic farm (only vegetables) on the Greek island of Chios, Greece, close to the Turkish border. I am a nature and animal lover.
The farm also serves as an animal rescue center with 60 cats and dogs, all at the moment 16 dogs soon to be 15 as one was adopted and will leave soon. Both dogs and cats were abandoned or neglected. They are all well behaved and crave for love and hugs. For some of these animals I try and find good homes. Others that are too old or sick will always stay with me.
I am also passionate about flowers and gardening and collect, grow and multiply flowers and plants.
The farm has Wi-Fi and it is situated in an unspoilt area of Chios in the North West of the island, with the beautiful village of Volissos with its Venetian castle perched on a hill and overlooking the Aegean Sea, a stronghold against the pirates during Medieval times .
The farm is about 1000 metres from the village, 700 metres from the beach.
Winters are mild. Summers are hot.
I provide accommodation and vegetarian food.
Volunteers should have some experience with dogs
IMPORTANT: Volunteering here includes dog poo cleaning.
Unfortunately, due to the fact that I belong to the high risk group, I cannot accept volunteers who have not been vaccinated.
Volunteers need to be vaccinated at least one month before they reach the farm

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, lots of wild flowers for the flora enthusiasts mainly during winter and spring, and various classes offered for free from the cultural society of the village (not during the COVID-19 epidemic)
