Take part in an Organic smallholding near Yalova

Pays: Turquie

Évaluation d'hôte Workaway
Activité récente


We are a British couple living at the edge of a forest village in the mountains, 12 km South of Yalova, which is reached by ferryboat from Istanbul. We have started to create an Organic Permaculture smallholding, and aim to create a sustainable way of living. You are welcome to take part in our work, to experience living in a small village and to join in with what's going on at the time.. It's a beautifully quiet rural area, close to Termal, the geothermal spa, and also remarkably accessible from Istanbul. Yalova is 1 hr from Bursa (historic city & former Ottoman capital). Bursa has good connections to & from the rest of Turkey. We have 3 dogs, 2 cats and 14 chickens(free range eggs); we're a no-smoking household.
