    We live on an eco community of two families (a Turkish family and a German-French family with young children), living in a tiny village at 200m altitude in the western Aegean peninsula of İzmir.

    Situated on the south facing slopes of a valley renowned for being the windiest location in the peninsula. Surrounded by peaceful woods, sea wiews and antique ruins. There is also eagles, plenty of bird species, wild boars, badgers, foxes, squirrels and plenty of nice walks in the mountain.

    The village has a café and a small grocery shop. We're at 50 mn walk or 10 mn drive to the beach of Altınköy, 15 mn drive from the nearest large town named Urla and just 1 hour from İzmir.

    Our Permaculture Farm: Our farm is a working permaculture farm under continuous development and with ever changing and evolving on ground research in practice; work is consistently in progress to develop new more efficient and productive systems. We offer volunteers the opportunity to learn while experiencing a real life permaculture farming and gardening live in working experience situation.

    We are renovating and restoring some parcels of land following permacultural principles. Our small community project requires gardeners, builders and labourers wishing to learn more about permaculture and sustainable living. As well as creating a large organic garden, building cob style buildings, animal enclosures, a bread/pizza oven and dry toilets.

    We are interested in self motivated people, happy with the simple life and to share in our daily work, food, recreation, experience, stories and music. The work is very physical but also varied and suitable for different abilities. Experience and knowledge of the work types is an advantage but not obligatory. Working time will be 5 hours per day, Monday to Friday. Outdoor work is weather dependent but we usually start early to finish before it gets too warm.

    Please come with shoes and clothes suitable for gardening. The continuous daily food production on the farm includes a large diversity of mixed vegetables and herbs, fruits in season, chickens for eggs and meat, milk and dairy products from our own sheeps. If you intend to work on the ground it is recommended to bring rubber gumboots, water proof coat, good shade hat, sunglasses, thick long work pants, working gloves (if you have soft hands), and long sleeved cotton work shirts (to avoid sun burn).

    We speak English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.

    We like going to the sea to swim, sail, fish or just relax. You will have easy access to endless mountain trails, and there's plenty of nice villages around to visit. For the more adventurous we are in the home of climbing and mountain biking.

    Our location is not off the beaten track, the village itself is quite lively in spring and summer and there are many lovely beaches within a few kms for swimming and sunbathing. There is a daily bus service from the village to the nearest local beaches. There are good hikes in the hills and along coastal paths.
