    Beschreibung

    Sihirli Tohumlar (magic seeds) is an ecological farm project which was launched by the Ertem family in 2011. The farm is located in the northwest part of Turkey about 2 hours away from Istanbul by bus near a village, Küçükyoncalı (3kms) in an oak forest. The project, which started with the aim of growing organic walnuts, has changed direction with the widening of the interests of individuals and contributions of different trainings. A system based on permaculture principles is currently being created. It is a farm that generates its own electricity, where natural housing is built on the basis of volunteering through training by experts. In 2019, besides the production of various vegetables in the garden, corn, barley and siyez (heirloom seeds from Anatolia) wheat production started. We breed free-range chicken. At certain intervals for two years we have been planting a canopy, an understory of fruit trees and bushes and shrubs and there are nearly 300 trees that are already turning into food forests. The purpose of Sihirli Tohumlar is to host and feed the animals that live on the farm, the team that sustains and supports it, and the visitors who come to the farm for the purpose of participating in the trainings during the summer season. The surplus of products are sold in nearby village shops as barter. It is an animal friendly atmosphere with dogs and cats. We have been hosting volunteers from all over the world since two years.
