Hello to all volunteers. I own a small farm (only vegetables) on the Greek island of Chios. Greece, close to the Turkish border. I am a nature and animal lover, I have 25 cats all rescued and 10 rescued dogs. The family keeps on growing as I inevitably fall on orphaned animals that need a family and home. I am also passionate about flowers and gardening and collect, grow and multiply flowers and plants.
On the farm everything is organically grown.

The farm may be small but we are never short of work. So I need help with the vegetable cultivation and various jobs around the farm mainly but also help with work around the house and the garden.

Accommodation during summer is only in comfortable camping tents. During winter volunteers may stay at another lovely little cottage further away which is normally rented out to tourists during the tourist season.

Max number of volunteers at all times: 2-3.

Min stay 4 weeks.

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 spring, and pilates classes. In the farm volunteers will learn organic vegetable growing technics, tips and flower cultivation. They can also participate and help with minor projects under guidance.

Commited and helpful people are welcome.
