  • Description

    Description

    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 fast ferryboat from Istanbul. Since the beginning of 2009 we have been working to create an Organic Permaculture smallholding, and our aim is to live both sustainably and comfortably. You are welcome to come and take part in our work, to experience living in a small forest 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 20 chickens(free range eggs); we're a no-smoking household.

    Volunteers join with the variety of things going on at the time, according to the weather & the season. The jobs generally include helping with the land, garden, chickens, dogs, planting, construction and in the house, and we can also adapt our program to suit our volunteers and their skills. We grow vegetables & fruit, garden plants & herbs, and there is plenty of practical work & construction. There is a lot to do & we provide a range and choice of tasks. In return you'll get a comfortable bed, your own bathroom (shared if we are full) and we all share in cooking and eating together.
    We've been hosts on Workaway since 2011, so we're in our 5th year as hosts. We've generally hosted 40-50 volunteers each year from March through October.

    The village is small & friendly (120 households), there is one shop, 3 tea-houses, and a health centre in the next village. The village runs a bus to & from Yalova, which is a busy university, sea-side & market town, with all the services of a provincial centre. Yalova forest is the only model forest in Turkey, offering unique opportunities for trekking & walking. 4 km from us is Termal, a renowned centre for geothermal healing waters.
