Program Details

At the mome is the olive season, so we need help for the picking and to experience the making of olive oil.
We are looking for people, not necessarily expert to help and that would like to experience the "Vendemmia"
We offer a place to sleep in the house situated 12 km from the farm. We go to the farm by car or depend on the task to do there, we are camping at the farm.
The camping at the farm is in progress, at moment we have tent, camping shower, cooking place and a lot of space, we are in the process to build a toilet too. We are looking for people with great ideas to build, suggest and help to make the camping the more comfortable possible :)!

When we are staying in the house at the seaside there is the possibility to give some help in the house for painting, building, etc.
If you have some special skills or projects that you like to propose and start, you are very welcome to do it.


Rules

PS: At this time, we can offer just accommodation. When we are at the farm we stay in a tent, you can have your own tent for short stay under 2 weeks, for stay 3 weeks or more we can provide a tent.

There is an apartment that is possible to use every 10-15 day in turns to wash clothes, have a proper bed and hot water shower.

The apartment is to share with the other volunteers, is a big open space, there is separation to have privacy with curtains.

The hours of work per day are flexible, we can discuss and arrange it together.

We can discuss everything and find the right balance and find the best solution for everyone.

Usually even in the farm season we are very relaxing, because the task has to be fun :)
