This is a family inheritance from several generations ago, the land is for agriculture and used to be used to graze sheep in the 19th Century.

Now it remains largely unused. It is a massive bit of land just outside from the main town of Astakos.

We are open to ideas and proposals for the land though neither of us has plans to live in that area, on the west coast of Greece, though it is nice.

    I have just spent the last 3 years starting and running a small democratic free school in the South Of Spain. We are situated in an off grid community in the mountains. I am now working towards passing this project on and moving onwards myself. I anticipate this taking about a year from now. I am considering working towards starting a similar project to help unaccompanied minors. Obviously a huge and complex undertaking but for sure a worthwhile one. Would this be something you would be interested in exploring?

    If you’re not living or planning to live there, IMO it would be hard to get anything going, easiest would be to rent it out to a local farmer.
    If you’re willing to invest time and some money you could go in the Permaculture direction, no till, self sustaining, but this will always require some presence at certain times, so it depends on how often you can attend to it, or if you can find someone to do it for you.

    I’m looking for some help designing/creating my Permaculture Paradise near Thessaloniki, where/how can i contact you?

    Hi Luke, no one is living there at the moment, it has a water source. It was originally grazing land for sheep, but during the last century was converted into agricultural land and has some irrigation systems existing.

    Sounds fantastic. Is there a water supply? Are you established there at the present time?
