    This summer, the construction of the earthbag house that we finished its groundwork and basement last year, will constitute the most important part of our work pace (between first of may. And 15 th july) This delightful process, in which we will also benefit from the books of Kakan Hunter and Donald Kiffmeyer, requires physical power at the same time. For this reason, we want volunteers who will be able to give the physical labor sincerely required for homemaking, and who are more or less inclined to these kind of work. In the earthbag house construction technique, the walls of the house are built by sacks which are filled with the previously prepared soil and in each row ,the form is settled by crushing these soil filled sacks. To be able to make the house making process as pleasant as possible, we will work in the morning and evening chill. We expect fellows who are friendly, positive, energetic, and who can turn this physical challenge into a learning experience and joy.

    As Aralcak we can host max. 2 friends and we wish them to stay with us minimum 15 days.
