  • Description

    Description

    This is an organic farm and a training center situated in Kandıra, near Kerpe (a small coast on the Black Sea), 2 hours from Istanbul.

    We are experimenting a natural life, with organic farming, animals, vegetation and people, all in their natural cycle. For 10 years now we have been living on the site and working together with and in nature. In our farm, we have an educational center and ecological hotel related to our training and consultancy company but the volunteers work only in the farm part.

    In the training centre, we offer an alternative type of training to people and host it in the nature and we share with them our philosophy of “ecological thinking”. For our hotel and training centre guests, we organize entertaining and educational events, workshops and trainings, we sell our products and we are constantly trying to create a demonstration of how people can create great things by respecting the nature.

    So we are willing to work with volunteers who will share our motivation to create a sustainable life in our farm.
