    Born raised in Canada, [ 1966 ] worked as a professional musician and now I am living in Ikaria for about 8 months of the year. The other 4 months I do a little travel myself & visit my family in Canada.

    I am now 52, like the quiet life, good food, good wine, good music and I absolutely LOVE my little bamboo forest.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    The workawayer will benefit from staying in our unique village / island and begin to understand why people from Ikaria island live long. Healthy food and fabulous pure wines from everyone's gardens. People here work as much as they need to survive. They don't live to work.

    Ikarians are very family oriented & social people. Talking with the locals you can learn about how people used to exist with very little and how little you actually need to survive.

    The opportunity for someone to learn is here. You will learn and experience as much as you care to. The light 4 hour morning help in my little bamboo forest ends and I will introduce you to various people and show you a few towns.

    In Kampos Ikaria I have a property which I am turning into a bamboo forest

    My little bamboo forest needs maintenance work. It's about 30 x 4 [metres ] . Removing weeds so the forest floor is clean. Planting new bamboo seeds and removing any old / dry branches. It needs watering daily if we are in the summer months.

    So basically, we will see where we need to add more bamboo roots and plant them. We will walk through the little bamboo forest and remove weeds so the forest floor is clear. Then we will use a special tool to create little puddles and paths for the water to flow through all parts of the little bamboo forest. The ultimate goal is to leave the water hose in one location and let the water run to all parts of the bamboo forest.

    It's easy help but it need love and care.
