    We are a project existing for about 6 years now we try to adopt Permaculture principles in all levels of our project. ( earth care , people care , fair share) But we (as everything) are constantly growing and through workaway we hope to share and gain knownledge from every part of the world.

    Currently Alısler Yurdu is home to nıne people and some animals. goats, cats, dogs, a donkey and some bees.

    From Aprıl to September we are hosts to different kind of workshops and seminars, which provıdes a good oppurtunity to meet turkish locals. As well as to observe the authentıc turkish way of living. To get an idea of these times check out our youtube-video 'Alışler Yurdu'.

    Our farm is located outside of Armutlu, you are able to reach us with the seabus from Istanbul to Armutlu Iskelesis. From there you can take a short taxı rıde to Alısler. Here you can enjoy the Marmara Sea in walking distance as a well as many beautiful trekking routes and even a secret waterfall.
