  • Beschreibung


    We are 35 km east of Chaing Mai city. We bought this land two months ago and we built a house , an outdoor kitchen dry (compost ) toilet and a bath immediately. Me and my husband worked so hard. I'm a physics teacher and my husband is a doctor. Nearly ten years ago I was intrested in ecology and I started doing physics projects related with ecology. A few years later I quited and continued to search ecology and permanent calture more. Then I joined a very popular group in Turkey which is intrested in ecology. We built an straw house with nearly 150 volunteers. We had so many volunteers there. We learned and taught each other. After a few years I bought a land in Turkey and started to built an ecological farm . Two years later Mehmet ( my husband) came to help me with a friend. Then we loved each other and get married in a few months. After he came he started doing all the stuff. He worked as a high qualified carpenter, an installer, a builder etc... He knows everything! So we shared the work. He is working on building stuff and I'm working in the garden. From now on we will stay half of the year in Turkey from April to the end of the August and from September to April in Chaing Mai city in Thailand.
    We sometimes do activities for adults or some students such as making compost, compost toilet, how to grow vegetables, how to make your soil better, how to make vinegar, etc.
    Our land is in the forest and its very silent. We can't make noise after 7 pm because our neighbour sleeps at that time. If we want to talk after that time there is a lake near our land. We go there and come back to sleep . We are also so close to San Kamphaeng Hot Spring, Muang On Cave and Crazy horse for rock climbing.
    In our farm volunteers prepare the meal. If you are vegeterian or vegan you can also prepare your own food or we can do it together. We planted our veggies two months ago so we started to harvest from the garden but half of the foods we buy from the local market. We make our own yoghurt and cheese at the farm. Friday is the cleaning day. On fridays we clean the house, the kitchen and the land and do the laundry. We have tents for the volunteers now but we are planning to built private rooms immediatly. We usally work 5 hours a day. We start work after breakfast at 9.00 am to 12.00 pm and from 3.00 to 5.00 pm in the afternoon. We have double beds in the tents. We have laundry, water, drinks and a fridge always full with veggies and fruits etc. free for our volunteers. We don't have internet now maybe later.
    Sharing is careing. We want to share all of our experinces with you and learn from you for a better world. Produce, not waste.
