Volunteers 2016

Dear new and old Skala Ecovillage’s friends,

WE THANK all volunteers, who have honored us with their working time, with their smile, their heart, and their inspiration and helped us to create more harmony, community and beauty in our ecovillage!

We are happy to announce that we attend to continue the volunteering program till the end of October 2016 and we want to invite you to join our Community Activities.

There is a possibility to accommodate 4 people each time unter roof, in sharing rooms, for two women and two men each. Of course you can also stay in tents enjoying the closer contact with nature.

Normally the day starts with a breakfast (sometimes also with yoga) and a “tuning in” meeting from 8:00 to 8:45am. Then it is time to get into work, in the vegetable garden, in the kitchen, cleaning the common spaces or in specific projects, as maintenance of existing infrastructure and helping in buildings: a tree house, a ferrocement water tank, finishing the biogas station, seeding etc. Lunch is served round 14:00 in the common house and it follows siesta. In the evening, depending on what are the projects in evolution and on the group’s energy, we may continue some works or take time for other creations, as art and sports. Dinner is serving at 20:00 and then we are open for celebration, music, talks, good company…

Everybody is invited to make their proposals and share their knowledge and abilities. Once or twice a week we aim to get in “heart sharing circles”, a good opportunity to get to know each other better, to communicate and to listen to whatever is on stage. The circles of sharing are the core of our community and you are very welcome to join us!

The volunteer work is on exchange basis, where the volunteer has covered the costs of food and accommodation and offers his work, six hours a day, six days/week. Accommodations will be either in caravan, either in the common house (in both of cases, sharing it with one other person). Other personal expenses are their own responsibility to cover. We accept only volunteers who want to get to know us better and are interested to stay and work with us longer than 2-3 weeks.

If interested, please come in contact with us telling the days you would like to come.

Looking forward for all the possibilities this exchange may bring,

Anna Filippou

in name of Skala Ecovillage.
