    Hi there! We are a couple with 3 years old daughter Ronya. Reşit (34) is working for Médecins Sans Fontières, Gizem (31) is a chef and recently quit job to spend more time for our project. Last summer, we bought a land that just 2 hours from Istanbul and started to built a house with second hand shipping containers. We finished the work for the house but there is a lot to do on land!

    Our land is surrounded by oak and hornbeam trees, it's a 6 decares agriculture land and there is no electricity grid close by. We are using solar power for our energy need. We already plant walnut trees and made a small garden for vegetables, planning to plant blueberries and want more fruit trees. We want to build a dome shape green house for our vegetable garden because the weather is challenging here! The first main work that we are planning now is to make a big deck in front of the house, which we really need a hand with that :) And also, we want to finish the tree house that we started for kids. Plus, to build an other tree house (let's say tree platform!) for adults.

    Our main goal is to share our space with people, share experience and learn together with the volunteers that will visit us. So we are open to any ideas and projects that we can built together. It can be a tree house, discovering trekking roads in the forest, making a henhouse, new approaches and ideas for the agriculture and so on. Which means any kind of idea and hand is welcomed!

    Our land is in the middle of forest. To be honest, there are only small villages near by. Besides from beautiful nature, not much to visit. But depending on the work we will be doing on land, we can organise trips around Iznik. For example, there is a big lake to swim which is 45 minutes drive from the land. There is no public transport near buy. But we have a car so we will be helping for transportation.

    We also have a dog which was a wild dog from forest. She is friendly to people, but we are not 100% sure how she will be with other pets... but should be fine :)
