The spring clearing has finished as we enter summer season and the heat it brings. Manual work is impossible in these temperatures. Volunteer Mel from Canada has moved on to Turkey, Madeline is walking The Camino in Spain and sisters Lauren and a Jordan have returned to the States.
During their stay we cleared a forest trail from the Plane tree Michalakis to the old water source, Kimissia trail, Vouno Glossa towards Ag Iannis, Ag Reginos Pirgos to Platanakia and Moutero to the spring and Panormos valley. A petrol strimmer was purchased thanks to a generous donation, which made work so much easier. Sadly the battery strimmer just isn’t strong enough . One tries to be eco friendly but the battery machine can’t compete with petrol.
Thank you girls for all your hard work. It was a pleasure to host you.
Work starts again in September.

A VIEW FROM THE LOOP
Came on this by chance Heather! Great to see that things are going well for you. It is a long time since 2006 when I was there and Lord knows I feel the years on me since I came home with my leg in plaster then. All the best with all you do – it is well deserved! Juliet xxx
Hi Juliet. I know your name as a blast from the past but I can’t remember anything else! Sorry. Remind me what happened with your leg.. Did I take you on a hike?
