I am located in the north west of the Cretan island of Greece. I am looking for one or two persons who love nature and working in the fields for two weeks or more. The farm has about 200 olives trees to harvest(November-December), clean, burn branches and trimm.
There is also an Organic garden to take care and look after as well as cleaning the place from bushes and grass. Actually I have a donkey helping in the farm and some chicken.
I also have a mongolian yurt, a caravan for the volunteers and a small house with bath and toilets. There is enough space to set a tent as one's wish for housing. This is a place I have been preparing since six years ago and there is a lot of small things to do , to make it even better. Good hand workers are welcomed.
This site is located in the wonderful countryside of Crete, 25kms from Chania (as well as a few kilometers of small typical villages). We have a great view of the White Mountains of Crete just in front of the place and a very green landscape all around.
Our summers are very hot so we need to start working outdoor very early around 6AM. We usely stop working at 11 or 12 pm .
I host a great african musician which also helps in the field , I broke my knee 2 times last year , so I am not able yet to do many things so I need responsible people and able to make decisions .
We have 2 times a month , with a group of friends, a meditation for the new and full moon.

I had a landslide because of torrential rains, 1 month ago, the plumber put a pipe and now we have to fill this place with terraces , this is the work that needs to be done for the moment . If you are interested, I would be delighted to welcome you .

If someone wants to stay long and there is compatibility of character and ideas, he or she will be more than welcome .
