We are a family living in the South of Crete, near Matala. It is a place of spectacular natural beauty, overlooking the Lybian sea and mountain Idis on the foot of Asterousia mountain. It is also a place of an olive tree monoculture, with very unsustainable water management and massive agrochemical use. We are cultivating Mariza's grandfather's olive groves since 2014 using little if any water, permaculture and biodynamic agriculture. In 2018 our olive oil received the Olympia golden award for its high concentration in phenols and thus its health protective properties.

There is still lot of work to do, and we need a couple of helping hands.

The need is greater during late October to early December, when we collect olives and prepare the new olive oil.
