With the arrival of Helen, Reka, Mandy, Cassandra and Antoine, things are starting to get form here in Paliomylos.
The weekend before their arrival, a greek group with interest in ecovillages organised a meeting in Athens. It was a great opportunity to meet people already making a similar effort or others that just have the dream to start something, an opportunity to talk about very interesting varied issues through the method Open-Spaces and get the first seeds of interest, (ex)change and of the salad of this coming summer!
So back in Rovies we have been:
Preparing the down garden for this summer
and a herb spiral
planting trees and making many seed nurseries
making our own olives, jams, picking and drying local herbs.
There are many thanks to be given and I might forget a name, so a future post will be dedicated to all those that give a helping hand to this effort. Thanks for all the seeds, trees, compost, manure, recycled material and your time, I hope soon to be able to exchange it back !
