I am Melina & have a big rose garden near Aigio of 6000 plants. It is a special variety called rosa damascena, an interesting & uncommon product with various uses, for jam, cosmetics, perfums, farmacy & spirits.

I need help for harvest season in May.
This is not a work but mostly fun. No need skills or strength to gather roses & separate petals. It is a very easy & light work, under unique conditions & marvelous aroma!!!
Even kids can do it!!!
All the prosedure takes place inside beautiful nature. We start every morning early 7:00.
You will get the knowledge of the gathering & processing of the flowers.
If someone is willing to know more we are open to show the full farming of the rose.

For 5 hours of help per day, 6 days a week, you get a small cottage in the farm which may host 4 persons. Facilities there, are just the basic, but gives you the opportunity to embrace nature.
I also provide a guest house at my home full equipped that may host also 4 persons. In both cases linen is provided.
If someone has a motorhome can stay at an organised camper stop we own, for free, which is on the beach.
Breakfast, snack & 1 meal with wine per day.

Minimum stay 2 weeks

Aigio nearby is a small nice city with many beaches & many small villages around. You can enjoy swimming in your free time or explore the surrounding area.
