I currently own 2000 olive trees of which I implement organic and sustainable growing techniques. In the spring volunteers will be pruning the trees, cleaning the field after our winter harvest, and clearing new growth. During the harvest months volunteers will collect the olives as they become ripe enough to send them to be processed to become oil.

Other work includes helping around the house, cooking and cleaning with me, and general chores and exchange of knowledge.

I am also looking for people who have experience in the fields of plumbing and general building. I am doing some minor renovations to prepare the house for use as an Air BnB host and have some painting, plumbing, carpentry and general maintenance to do before it gets started. If you have experience in this area please contact me for more details on what the jobs would be.

The town of Martino is situated in the middle of many of Greece's great sites. Delphi is 70km away, the beach is 15 km, and we have hot springs of Thermopiles (Thermopylae) is 70km too. Its beautiful!

Guests will stay in the house with me with their own separate bedroom, but we will share a bathroom and kitchen where we will cook and eat together. Volunteers will have the opportunity to eat traditional Greek food and enjoy living in a traditional Greek village away from the mainstream of the big cities. After work we can go to the sea for a swim to cool off or we can visit the hotsprings. I love to explain the many historical areas around where I live, we can even visit where the 300 Spartans held off the Persian army!
