  • Description


    We are an eco-agro tourism farm in Yanıklar Village near Fethiye in the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Our farm occupies 42,000 sq.m. of land in the middle of a valley, surrounded by pine forest, with a river as one of its boundaries. We are committed to organic growing, an ecological lifestyle and offering holidays on our farm where all buildings are ecologically designed, constructed of stone, wood or mud-brick and available for accommodation 12 months of the year.We are also a part of the TaTuTa organization to support Turkish organic/local farming.

    We are looking for volunteers, to help us in general farm works as well as the house works in exchange of accommodation and knowledge in organic farming and ecological architecture etc.

    What we are looking for specifically is someone who will take care of our 4.5 year old child ''Sumi'' for 4-5 hours a day - 5 days a week.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living and working in a farm with local people - interacting with continuous flow of guests throughout the year, will certainly give you the opportunity to learn things like, traditional Turkish Cuisine, and its unique culture. You can also learn a lot about sustainable and ecological farming practices. Volunteers are also encouraged to talk to visiting Yoga / Meditation Instructors to see if they can also be a part of their programs - if they are interested.
