I'm Eray.. I'm living with Federica and 2 years-old baby Doğan Ateş, in a 1 hectare fruit garden, two km. away from the closest village on Ida Mountains (Kaz Dağları)..
RIGHT NOW OUR PLACE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR HOSTING VOLUNTEERS.. WE'LL LET YOU KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE..
We're living a very simple rural life but still we need help with several aspects of life.. We are living in a garden with many trees, a small vegetable garden, cats and dogs and a superfast life-enthusiastic toddler to be taken care of :)
Workawayers, volunteers and travellers are more than welcome to join the family..
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
We're living at the piedmont of Ida mountains, two km. away from a village where locals provide most of their needs from this mountain.. This is one thing I learned and am still learning since I moved here 6 years ago..
Not only the local villagers, there are also many ''new villagers'' like us in our area in the last 10-15 years.. Many people from different ages between 20-65 who can speak enough English to share their stories..
Federica and I are living our lives with Rainbow culture for the last few years which is basicly about love and peace and music.. So be prepared for fullmoon gatherings around the bonfire, nights full of circles and music, lots of hugs and love..
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Depends on the season of the year I'll need help for different tasks in the garden.. I finished the construction of the earthbag house but it still needs improvements inside and outside of the house.. Planting new trees, building a coop and shelter for new animals are some of the Jobs for the next months..
As I finished the earthbag house now visitors can use the wooden hut for accomodation.. I also have a big tent for three people.. And additionally we have a teepee..
Of course we're not gonna be working everyday.. We're hippies after all!!.. During the summer we'll often visit the waterfalls on the mountain.. Seaside is not that far also.. We might escape for a couple of days of camping..
Besides these options if the workawayer wants to hang out alone I can help with info about several nice places around us and in Turkey as I travelled most of the country by bicycle..
