Responsible tourism: Crete cooking vacation, vegetarian and vegan cuisine

Environment

On this trip you will be learn the culinary secrets of the famous local diet, understanding where ingredients come from as well as their health benefits. Cretan gastronomy is directly linked to the diversity of the local flora. Most of the recipes we use in our cooking workshops include wild herbs and aromatic plants.

Naturally, we are committed to conserving the local natural world. We run a permaculture system at the Olive Farm, we grow our vegetables from heirloom seeds, keep a plant nursery and a seed bank and we also encourage the growth of many wild species of edible greens and herbs within the premises of the farm. Our values and philosophy as a company include the protection and conservation of the local wildlife.

Additionally we have set up our own compost system at the farm, run our own environmental education program and we have constructed everything using recycled and rescued materials. When it comes to transportation we prefer bikes and we also encourage our guests to use bikes. Sustainability is our core valued and we practice it very day.

Community

We love all things local. We love the local culture and we are here to communicate it. We want you to experience rural Greece from the inside and appreciate each destination not only for its food and wildlife but also for the people. We only support local businesses:

Our accommodation options include traditional houses and villas owned by the locals. The produce we use during our cooking classes comes from artisan producers from nearby villages. It’s the local community that forms the backbone of all our operations, so supporting and preserving the local produce and crafts is our purpose.

Our wish is to grow as a company along with other businesses in the community so that they can in turn support us better with time. This way collectively we will restore and conserve the rural communities in Greece and assist in reviving our cultural heritage. We socialize with our suppliers and we often share endless meals. Come along and meet each and every one of them
