  • Young Greeks Create Self-reliant Island Society

    On the slopes of Mount Telaithrion on the island of Evia, a group of young Greeks have left the busy city and created a self-reliant rural community. Their goal is to eat only the organic produce they grow themselves, to free themselves from the national electricity grid, and to exchange what they grow or make instead of using money. The project, whose ultimate goal is to create a school for sustainable living, was the idea of four Athenians who met online back in 2008 and bonded over their dissatisfaction with the daily grind of city life. In their second year of living permanently on a forested patch of land next to the village of Aghios, 80 percent of the food they eat now comes from their two herb and vegetable gardens and the fruit they pick off the trees. The group, almost all o...

On the slopes of Mount Telaithrion on the island of Evia, a group of young Greeks have left the busy city and created a self-reliant rural community. Their goal is to eat only the organic produce they grow themselves, to free themselves from the national electricity grid, and to exchange what they grow or make instead of using money. The project, whose ultimate goal is to create a school for sustainable living, was the idea of four Athenians who met online back in 2008 and bonded over their dissatisfaction with the daily grind of city life. In their second year of living permanently on a forested patch of land next to the village of Aghios, 80 percent of the food they eat now comes from their two herb and vegetable gardens and the fruit they pick off the trees. The group, almost all of whom follow a strict vegetarian diet, sleep communally in yurts - portable, tent-like dwellings made of tarp often seen in Central Asia. Whatever is left over from their gardens, they exchange in the village for the supplies they cannot produce. 32-year-old co-founder Apostolos Sianos quit a well-paying job as a web site designer in Athens to help start the community, which is called 'Free and Real.' [Apostolos Sianos, Co-Founder of 'Free and Real']: "The crisis or the austerity measures doesn't actually affect you because you create your life and your future everyday, it has nothing to do with the outside circle. It may (have) affected us, but only in a good way because more and more people are willing to be self-sufficient and sustainable, so they contact us, and more and more people after the crisis want to get involved." The group actively use social media, and last year over one hundred people from Greece and abroad asked about joining or collaborating in some way. Dionysis Papanikolaou, for example, gave up a lucrative academic career to be closer to nature and far from the heavy atmosphere of the financial crisis in Greece. [Dionysis Papanikolaou, Group Member]: "If you keep on reading news, watching TV and the crisis, the crisis, the crisis, even subconsciously you say the crisis! Here, there is no crisis. I mean, it makes no difference." The group take pride in being self-sufficient. [Panagiotis Kantas, Co-Founder of 'Free and Real']: "The reality of life is just outside your door. When you have to warm yourself up you actually have to go out in the wood and gather wood, fire wood, and bring it home to actually warm yourself up." They currently organize seminars on organic farming and have drawn up the plans for a large school on sustainable living to be constructed later this summer, and for which they raised money on a crowdfunding site on the internet. [Panagiotis Kantas, Co-Founder of 'Free and Real']: "I just try to be the change I want to be, instead of waiting for a government to make the change, or instead of voting for someone to make the change. I try to be the change." For more news and videos visit ☛ http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C

They use special low energy LED bulbs and an integrated hydroponics system to grow a range of micro-herbs, shoots, miniature vegetables and other delicacies to be sold to restaurants, supermarkets and wholesalers The advantage of being underground is it is insulated, so the temperature can be kept stable and the rent is considerably less than if they used on a normal warehouse in central London.

Real Food and Sustainable Tourism in Tuscany. We offer the unique experience to discover the real food and the real people at http://www.suziesyard.com/. A lot of activities at Mount Cetona is 750 miles from London, or the same distance as Dover to John O’Groats. Our journey began in 1999 when we swapped city life for rural Tuscany. Looking for clean air and a slower pace of life, we got bitten by the land bug and by what it means to grow real food. Suzie’s Yard started with these beautiful, old olive trees. Most families in the area have their own grove and we wanted to be part of that. And once you make your own oil, there’s no going back. Here we are in Le Cretaie, an olive grove that’s south facing and protected from the harsh winds. It has the perfect combination of cultivars, soil and microclimate to produce some of the best extra virgin olive oil to be found anywhere in the world. A hilltop village of 2000 people, Cetona is almost like stepping back in time. Within the lifespan of our olives it has seen war and famine, good times and bad. Everyone knows each other; everyone has time. A funny, stoic people, settled in a landscape both beautiful & unforgiving, there’s a lot that’s genuine including the food and the welcome you’ll receive. Halfway between Rome and Florence, off the beaten track, Cetona is a hidden gem. Cetona’s Rocca castle is over eight hundred years old. In its shadow farmers continue to work their fertile land with humility. These smallholdings are often organic; chemicals are, after all, simply expensive. The world maybe a very different place from fifteen years ago in many respects; but life here in the fields goes on almost unchanged. In an age when food has never been more plentiful in the rich world, many of us have questions. There are big problems associated with large farms and factory produced globally transported food: whether if be the impoverishment of the soil, the disappearance of the birds and the bees, the chemical residues, the inhumane treatment of animals, the corn starch, the pink slime, the diabetes, the list goes on… In our rush to embrace convenient food are we unwittingly sacrificing sustainable? Whilst we delighted in everything available all year round, we know what happened to truly tasty when seasonal. Current food safety standards … well, as a producer I wonder that they may turn out not to have been so safe, tomorrow. In a landscape of castles and gardens nestle top quality restaurants-cum-cookery schools whisking us back to simpler flavours. Osterie where young and talented chefs, are selecting the best local ingredients and the best organic wines from people they know, and whose production methods they hold in esteem. Farmers with tablets and GPS in their tractors are choosing to plant vintage variety wheat that is more pest resistant and more nutritious even if the yield is lower. Artisans who know their history and are passionate about their art are networked, have websites and are reaching a wider public than ever before. Maybe, if we want it to, all of this will survive. How much faith should we be putting in a food system that is skewed in favour of industrial scale production, whose advocates lobby so actively to get the legislation they need…? To produce more cheaply; but at what price for us all long-term? By putting great taste & health first we’ll all be supporting planet earth, small farmers and functioning communities. By buying from people we know we can all bridge the gap between cities and rural areas. Adopt a tree, what an excuse to come and spend time in a place that has great food, fantastic wines, and many talented individuals; no noise, no traffic, where you can see the stars, where you can relax and dream; regenerate and move forward… Together with young photographer Dario Pichini and local musicians Diego Perugini and Alessandro Cristofori, rather than tell the story of how Cetona once was, when it is no more, we wanted to make a video that would celebrate how it is today, managing to embrace both the traditional and the contemporary; and the choices people are currently making, to stay independent and small, against all the odds.
