  • Description


    Hi, we are a family with two little kids (1 and 3 years old) from Germany. We moved to Turkey to make our dream of our own little Garden Eden come true. We live in a small village near Izmir-Tire where we bought a piece of land we want to develop. We have a lot of projects we want to target like planting a lot of different trees and creating garden and agricultural spots as well as hosting some animals. Right now we have two goats, some chickens and three dogs :)
    If you want to enjoy the Izmir area of Turkey and help us out with our garden and side projects be our guest:)
