  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The volunteers could get the experience of natural agricultural practices all over the year (permaculture, fukuoka, traditional, biodynamics, ecological), construction with local materials not using cement, terrace-reliance walls to the gardens, collecting woods from the forest, cooking bread and other dishes in the kitchen with wood fire not using the gas.

    We live here as three houses. We are all from the different regions of Turkey. The volunteers can witness the cultural mosaics and can be a part of our cultural, ecological and democratic solutions of the daily life. Also we have villages and friends in our neighborhood of 1,5 and 7 km away. We meet them very frequently thanks to our economical cooperations. We work together.
    They can be a part of these relations as well
