Learn how to cook healthy and re-connect with yourself, others around you and with the nature.
“On the trip with Footour, I have realized that healthy food can be so colorful and tasty.” Flor
Inspired by Mediterranean cuisine we cook food from local ingredients. You can choose between vegetarian and carnivore versions.
The first week you will stay in a traditional, stone-build guesthouse in the beautiful mountain village of Neohori and Dafni, Adonis and Aladin will be your hosts. Dafni is a great painter and photographer working with people in need and a wonderful teacher. Aladin has left his country due to war and is currently helping out with many projects in Lefkada. Adonis is a classy cook. All of them are well known and loved in the village. Their friends are captains who sail ecologically, farmers, herbalists, artists, paragliders and sportsmen, it’s simply their home.
The second week you will spend in a village at the coast. You will have the opportunity to try Yoga techniques, to learn about Greek cosine while helping out in the kitchen. But the best part is enjoying the crystal clear waters of the coves around.
As volunteers, we will support the local communities in order to pay Lefkada back for its hospitality. We, here at Footour, believe that life should be more about giving. We will meet the community representatives from the Non-Profit Lefkogaia –an urban cooperative implementing the model called Re-use-Reduction-Recycling in Lefkada– to learn about the challenges of the local life. We will dedicate our time and our effort to make sure we contribute some knowledge, skills, experience or labour.
This trip is designed for those who care about the environment and want to protect it. It is for those who want to enhance their lives, support others in need and leave a positive footprint.
