I have been travelling and living at Eco Projects for the last few years. Most of the projects I have been involved in revolve around Permaculture.
My true passion lies with Natural Building and that's mainly what I have been doing with my extra time. I now have the opportunity to tend to my own land here in North Euboea.
The plan is to set up a small farm based on Permaculture Principles and using Keyline Design. I am at the very beginning of this endeavor but confident of its success. Backed by years of careful planning and experience, I believe the project will flourish into a functional profitable farm. It will host students and enthusiasts looking to learn about regenerative agricultural techniques and demonstrate a clear transparent example of how to live in a healthy, profitable, self-sustaining habitat.

You will learn about the local culture as there will be day trips to the sites of the area.
You will learn how to prune an olive tree which is considered an art form.
You will learn about olives in general. Their varieties, their care and uses. The production process.
I have just taken over my grandfathers fields which contain about 170 olive trees. They have been neglected for a few years and I am now in the process of bringing them to a productive condition. The work I need help with will consist of pruning the trees (considered an art form) and picking the olives to make olive oil. The work is not necessarily too labor intensive but can be quiet tedious.
You will be set up in a comfortable private room with a shared bathroom with hot water. This was my grandfathers house in the village that has just been renovated with all the comforts of a modern abode. Kitchen fully functional and accessible. All meals are provided. Full WiFi coverage.
The village life is pretty typical. Work in the morning hours and Tsipuro (the local spirit) from lunch time onwards. The area is surrounded by nature. Vast forests stretching down to beautiful beaches and peppered with waterfalls and mountainous peaks.
