    2 main things you can grasp here, natural building technics and permaculture design. We have just and slowly started applying on the land. Around 80 fruit and nitrogen fix trees has been planted and one by one I am building raised beds around them. To do so all kind of compost methods (bokashi, hot and cold) has been applying here. Besides all this daily chorus, I will be building raised beds by using sandbags. In farm we have many musical instruments like piano, guitar, drum. So if you interested in, we can practice and jam together. When we are not working, especially in summer, I mostly discover nice bays to swim and scuba diving. Not only workayers discover am ancient sea side touristic place, Bodrum, also it's villages and real Turkish culture with me.

    For the summer season I usually work between 8-11 am and 6-8pm because of hot weather. And besides daily chorus like taking care of compostings and watering, Cleaning the house and garden, I am building raised beds by using sandbags and using hugel culture method in greenhouse. Mostly we will be working for this purpose around the land. Cleaning the area, digging and filling it with organics.

  • Accommodation


    For autumn and winter seasons we have 1 bed room With double bed.
    For hot seasons, we have big tents with double beds in, so still they are really comfortable and even better temperature than inside of the house.

    We have a kitchen it the homestead. Mostly my mom drop sometime and cook for us, if workawayer has a special diet, together we can do our groceries and cook.
    So it is a must that workawayer at least needs to know how to cook for him/herself.
