  • Description


    Hello fellow Workawayers,
    My name is Ibrahim. I live in small village near Ortaca Mugla with my wife. I have a son who study University in Istanbul. Mugla is a touristic city in the south west coast of Turkey.

    I used to work as a computer programer. As I always dreamed to live a simple lifestyle and away from the crowded of big cities, I decided to quit my job in 2014 to and moved to my calm village.

    We grow vegetables and fruits just for ourselves in the farm. We grow our products as much as possible by ecological method.

    I would like to work at other farms in other countries as a workawayer in the near future, but first I want to gain some workaway experience by hosting fellow workawayers from all around the world. I also think hosting workawayers at my farm will help me to improve my English.
