    Description

    Hello fellow Workawayers,
    My name is Ibrahim. I live on my farm near Izmir. Izmir is a big city in the west coast of Turkey. My wife and son stay in the city on weekdays. We are together on the farm over the weekends.
    I used to work as a computer programer. I wanted to live a natural lifestyle and I have quitted my job in 2014.

    We grow vegetables and fruits just for ourselves in the farm. I have 50 m2 polytunnel, two dogs and 100 - 150 chickens in the farm. I had goats but I sold my goats. Don't ask me why.

    I would like to work at other farms in other countries as a workawayer in the near future, but first I want to gain some workaway experience by hosting fellow workawayers from all around the world. I also think hosting workawayers at my farm will help me to improve my English.

    I prefer male volunter.

    Help

    We need help with simple gardening jobs. If you have experience in farming they are easy jobs such as vegetable planting, harvesting, hoeing and collecting stones. Working hours are quite flexible.
    Furthermore; I would appreciate it if you can help me to improve my English.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There are a lot of historical places& ancient ruins if you are interested near Izmir like Ephesus and Bergama (Pergamon). My farm is also not far from some beaches, they are only 20-30 km from the farm. In order to go to all those places, you can use public transport which is pretty affordable.
    I can pick you up from the airport or from the bus station.
