Me and my wife are living in a rural area near Ankara. We are a young couple who are trying to build our own little farm and a new life for 4 years. Our place is a kilometer away from a village, Tahtaciorencik. There are some other people like us in the village who we cooperate with. Özge, my wife and me are beekeeping to earn our life, also growing vegetables for our need. Our land is 6 acres and it is still new we are planting trees, building stone walls and trying to develop it. Our region is a passage between plains and mountains. Mostly a moor land around and forests to the mountains. We have a beautiful little river nearby.
You can learn beekeeping if you are interested. Plus local food, people and landscape of course.
We need people who would help us in the garden, growing vegetables, planting trees, watering plants, carrying stuff around, working with soil, processing food, building things, daily house works like cooking cleaning, plus in beekeeping if interested.
We can give you a private bedroom in the house, or you can use your tent if you wish. We pay for the food. Cooking, eating, cleaning and stuff like that is all together like a family. Also we will grow some free food for all of us in the garden.
Smoking or drinking alcohol is free. I mostly smoke only a few cigs a day sometimes none, my wife doesnt smoke, we prefer not to smoke in the house. We have internet connection, not a very good one but it is OK. It is possible to reach the closest town , Güdül, with public transport, from there we can take you with car. In your free time you can take a walk to village or river side, go fishing according to season, we can go to mountains alltogether. We have a very shy cat. Attention: people with bee poison allergies should be careful.
