Hello. We are a couple (thirties yo) living in the village Kato Gatzea of Pelion, next to the sea.

We rent a field of 0.6 hectares (6.000 sq. m.) 3km far where we practice organic farming. We also rent a workshop 0.5km far. We grow tomatoes for paste. We need help for 2 phases:

1) In August: We need help for collecting the tomatoes and make them paste. What we do is to start early in the morning for the collection and then move the tomatoes to the workshop for the paste making. There is a break in midday for swimming because the temperatures are too hot to do anything. In the afternoon we start again. Total working hours are 7-8 per day. We need help for 2 weeks period, when the tomatoes will be red! After we finish, you can stay 1 week more if you like. Or stay for the next phase.

2) In September: For 1+ week period we need help to remove summer vegetables and start winter vegetables for 6 hours per day.

You can stay in our home or in our small home garden with tent. You can even, if you prefer, stay in the field (compost toilette) or in the workshop. One of us is vegetarian so there is always a vegetarian plate.
