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.
Help with Eco project
The help includes mostly organic farming, some animal care, cooking, and sometimes application of permaculture and eco architecture.
Our coworkers whom volunteers work with in the fields speak only Turkish but we (the hosts) speak english.
Volunteers can stay either in the traditional big sleeping tent of 80 m2 or in their own tent. We have conventional wc and showers with hot water, as well as a compost toilet.
We offer natural high quality food, mostly from the farm.
The food is suitable for vegetarians but please ask (if the meal includes meat) to be sure before eating :) We can also cook vegan food if you ask for it.
Volunteers will have the chance to experiment the farm life: they will see the local agricultural techniques and the local way of living , they can learn how to make cheese, butter and bread and they can simply enjoy the animals, forest and the sea...
And we ll share all together the delicious organic turkish food directly from the farm :)

More than two
Most of the people working in the farm are from the villages around the farm. They are open minded and fun and this naturally generates a cultural exchange.
