  • As Active Guest: This is for guests who want to participate to the farm/community life on a free will basis. During low season we can give lower renting price for those participating in community tasks. This is perfect for Digital Nomads who want to need more time for themselves but still want a taste of the community permaculture lifestyle! Contact us for more info!
  • As Visitor: Dio Pigadia is a public place where visitors are always welcome. Please let us know in advance for visits, so me make sure we are available to receive you and hopefully give you a tour. During summer we will have visits on Tuesday afternoon only! We always try to be available for those passing by and interested and we live to share our passion and actions. Donations welcome!
  • As Community Volunteer (min. 8 weeks). The full Dio Pigadia experience! Community volunteers are the backbone of Dio Pigadia. You will experience first-hand the community and permaculture lifestyle, become fully part of the family. You will participate in all the activities, rotations and tasks. You will benefit from the knowledge and guidance of the permanent members but are more than welcome to share your knowledge, take responsibility, help in the decision making. Check out the Volunteer section for more info!
  • As Short Term Volunteer. In specific situations we accept short term volunteers. This is when there is availability and for specific times when we need extra muscle. This is so people who want to be volunteering but can’t stay the whole 8 weeks get a chance. We will ask for a participation of 10e a day. Contact us if interested.
  • As Workshop Participant. In spring and autumn seasons we will offer thrilling workshops! Participants will benefit from the experience and skills of the Pigadians and other invited specialists. This will be an intensive knowledge exchange experience. Check out the Workshops section for more info!
  • As a Pigadian. Pigadians are the permanent members of the community. They are specialised in an activity and involve themselves all year long on site. We are always growing and opportunities will arise. Stay tuned!

    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.

    Such a lovely place! We stayed for three nights and felt home, the atmosphere is peaceful and welcoming, we were invited to help ourselves with everything … More the farm yields - vegetables, greens and eggs. the volunteers were friendly, and Jules hosted us so nicely, he showed us around the farm and kindly explained about the ways he operate the farm and the permaculture approach, he gave us so much knowledge with such a big smile, it was a pleasure!

    I spent approximately 2 months alongside Jules and many other volunteers and it was for me one of my deepest experience I've never had. You live, … More learn, practice as if it was your family, your shared project that you support, a return to a sober living.
    Thank you for all, I'll never forget. Kiss

    Had an amazing time at Dio Pigadia volunteering for 6 weeks. It was great to learn about gardening and permaculture, and to be part of such a welcoming … More community !

    A magical place with amazing people, Dio Pigadia feels like a second home, and I can’t wait to be back!

    A little paradise and a source of creativity. This place has a beautiful spirit as well as awesome human beings and animals. You have to visit it!

    What an incredible place where nature and humans work in collaboration to enable sustainable living and agriculture.
    Not only is Dio Pigadia in gorgeous
    … More setting, in the hills between Pylos and Methani, the people there are also really nice. A must visit whether you're a volunteer or visiting the area (they do hope evenings on Fridays!).
    They also have rental cottages (Nectar Pylos) which are a gem to stay in if you're visiting.

    Truly a special place. There's a lot to learn from this place, a bunch of warm people and many great ideas of how to live together in a sustainable … More (ecological & social) way. I really liked volunteering during the olive harvest, I still often think about the feeling of waking up and feeding the animals first thing in the morning before having breakfast and starting the day together with everyone. Greetings from Bonn :)

    I've worked as a volunteer last autumn (sorry Jules it took me a long time to write a little review, but better late than never:-) It's a unique … More place in which you will be able to help a common project that makes so much sense nowadays and be part of a family. If you are curious, motivated, eager to exchange and share experiences/knowledge and you want to add a little be of you in this amazing project then go for it. You will discover the pleasure of living the slow life and go back to the essential. I wish with all my heart to come back to this little haven of peace !
