    We are looking for volunteers who stay at least 4 weeks or more.

    We are a Spanish/English couple living at this place, we are looking for someone to be with our 3 & 6 year old boys for 5 hours, 6 days a week.

    We are looking for someone, ideally a woman with fluent in English who loves to be with children & nature. It would be great if they have knowledge of Steiner/Waldorf or Montessori education, but this is not essential. Also someone to help with buıldıng & gardening work.

    We would like to do an exchange for food and accommodation for 30 hours a week.

    Our project is 7 years old, we try to adopt Permaculture ethics 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, our farm is home to nıne people.

    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.
