Our meeting point is on one of our Orchards. Your experience starts under our big Walnut tree for introductions. We will take a small tour of the orchard as we discuss the micro-climate and geological conditions that gave rise to this unique Natura-protected ecosystem. Pick any available fruits for a quick and healthy energy boost. It's time for some herb hunting. Our routes will be on average around 10 kilometers,including the return. We will track and identify as many possible indigenous plants, herbs and flowers as we walk through stunning landscapes. We will make stops for photographs and of course at the top of our route we will make some freshly cut herbal tea to enjoy along with the view. We will head back to the orchard for any questions about plants, permaculture,organic farming, beekeeping or whatever else you have in mind.
I am an organic farmer and beekeeper based in Rhodes. Through my work i was amazed by the native and indigenous plants of my beautiful island so i started the journey of herb hunting.What started as simple curiosity evolved into a way of living.For me a walk on the mountain is now an every day activity that includes nature observation,mushroom hunting,wild fruit harvests or even just creative-talking walks depending on the time of the year.
You are welcome to pick any fruit from our organic farm.
We offer water and coffee through the hunting and of course a cup of freshly cutted herbal tea
