  • Description


    Hi fellow friends,
    We are a group of friends trying to establish an ecological life surrounded with forest at Ida mountains.
    We have build the subbasement, wooden skeleton and the roof of the house and going to continue with the walls. Build a workhouse and a coop and lots work :D
    You are so welcome if you would like to give a hand..

    Ida, mountain range near the site of ancient Troy. A classic shrine, Ida was where Paris passed judgment on the rival goddesses and was the scene of the rape of Ganymede. From its highest peak, about 5,800 feet (1,800 m), the gods are said to have witnessed the Trojan War.
    Also Mount Ida has some 32 endemic species. Some of these species grow in certain small areas and most of these isolated areas located on the upper part of the mountain and especially around Sarikiz peak. These areas are exposed to direct human impact. As for Flora approiximity of 800 plants belonging to 101 families have been identified by botanists in Mount Ida so far. 77 of these types can be grown only in Turkey. 29 out of 77 are endemic. On the southern slopes of the mountains up to 200 meters from the sea level, olive trees, about 800 meters pine trees , up to 1.500 metres larches and beaches can be grown as naturally. Endemic plants can be seen over 1.550 metres on the mountains.
