We live in Gumusluk, Bodrum, Turkey, which is built upon the ancient site of Myndos. We have a stone house on a 7 acre land. We are developing the garden, we are also engaged in woodworking and ceramics projects - both furniture design and gifts/souvenirs. We can provide accommodation and food for two people, and compensate their contributions through projects that bring in money.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Our place is located on the ancient site of Myndos. Archaeological ruins, ancient hiking paths, riverbeds full of history, etc. Additionally, we are prolific learners and love to share what we know. We can provide information about the history of the region, the local delicacies, etc.
Moreover, this is a touristic area, so if you like to party, you will find one that suits your taste (be it house parties or seaside clubs, live music, etc.) any day.
We need help with our garden (both ornamental and vegetables), maintaining the house while we work on our projects. Additionally we welcome woodworkers (amateur and experienced) and ceramic/pottery artists for our professional projects. We are building a beehive kiln, a rocket mass heater, a natural-filter pool. We also have a tangerine/orange/citrus orchard that needs maintenance.
Moreover, we are engaged in music, electronics/robotics projects on the side, so any help there is also appreciated.
Anyone who can teach us 3d modeling is also welcome.
We have 2 rooms to spare. Additionally we can provide tent space under the tangerine trees. We buy the groceries etc together, and all of us can cook -when we find the time to do so. We share what we have.
Guests can swim in the sea, get a nice suntan, party, visit historical sites, meet nice people, etc. We have a large and diverse group of friends in the town, so it's almost certain that you will find people you can connect with.
