Dio Pigadia Farm

What is Dio Pigadia?

Dio Pigadia is an Eco-farm established 4 years ago in southern Greece, inspired by the philosophy of permaculture.

Permaculture doesn’t focus on food production, it covers a wide range of aspects such as energy and resource management or social life.

It refers to the need to design our way of living in an efficient and sustainable way. It promotes creativity and a global approach to solve problems that are interconnected.

At Dio Pigadia we aim for sustainability and autonomy.

We intend to regenerate the soil destroyed by conventional agriculture. The soil is the base of the ecosystem and deserves care. Biodiversity is the key here.

But it is not only the soil that is destroyed and needs healing, we need to regenerate the human substrate, the link between people.

Dio Pigadia is an experimental space for people with a common dream for a better future.

Here we learn how to live and work together for a sustainable world.

Come visit us, enjoy delicious vegetables, fruits, olive oil… See what is possible if we think and do things differently!

Support us by spreading the word: together we will make it!

    I spent 3 days as volunteer at Dio Pigadia and it was a memorable experience! It’s amazing how the community runs the farm, educate the newcomers and are … More able to sustain the landscape and all its beauty products in such a nurturing way. The people on the farm are super warm and welcoming, the space is clean, the homemade meals are amazing and everybody is kind in educating about how the farm is operating. Can’t wait to come back!

    Amazing place where you can explore sustainable practices including composting, mulching, wood work, lacto-fermentation, low-technologies... in an interacting … More community.

    My daughter and I only wanted to visit Dio Pigadia for one afternoon but we ended up staying three weeks. It was a truly great experience for us and we … More both enjoyed taking care of the animals, gardens and veggies on the farm and fell in love with this little paradise. We ate daily together with the other volunteers amazing fresh meals with very tasty vegetables from the garden, helped out at a beach clean up event and even went sailing together.
    Saying goodbye was a hard one here but we both know for sure we want to come back, so it's only bye for now and thank you for everything Jules.

    What a great place! We came across Dio Pegidda online and Jules took all the time to show us around and answer our questions. It’s a community based ecological … More farm that really takes care of the land. We visited more projects in and around Greece and at Dio Peggida they realized a lot in just 6 years. Thanks Jules for the inspiring afternoon and we’re curious to return in a couple of years to see the progress!

    We’ve stayed for a week in dio pigadia with my family as active guests. Our stay was beyond expectations. Stunning and comfortable place while it brings … More you back to basics. Thanks to the amazing staff and volunteers, we very fast felt part of the community. We highly recommend for a special experience in Peloponnese. All the family will take away something and reconnect with the essential laws of nature.

    Joke and I had a holiday on the Pelopenesos. We stayed in Pylos and did some hiking and visiting archeological sites. Since our daughter and son in-law … More have a biodynamic vegetable farm in the Netherlands we googled on bio-farm. We had a hit for Dio Pigadia Farm. Perma-culture was the key word here. Since we know something about the filosofie of permaculture we made contact with Jules. We visited the place for a few hours. Warmly welcomed we had a tour around the property with a lot of information and explanation. A really inspiring place where you can really dive into sustainable living in every aspect. Great respect for the people there, who have founded a nucleus with great potency and expectation. Good luck and thank you for your dedication.
