We are in Sakarya which is 200 km far from Istanbul. We bought this land 5 years ago and we built a house with a kitchen. Also an outdoor kitchen with two stone oven, dry (compost ) toilet and an outdoor bath also. We have a wooden hexagonal structure for doing yoga, dance, reading and some activities a pond nearby. Me and my wife worked so hard. My wife was a physics teacher and now she is an aromatherapist and I'm a doctor. We worked hard and did lots of stuff. I worked as a high qualified carpenter, an installer and a builder. So we shared the work. I'm working on building stuff and she is working in the garden.
We sometimes do activities for adults or some students such as making compost, compost toilet, making natural creams soaps and shampoo. How to grow vegetables and take seeds from them, making soil better, worm compost, making vinegar, cheese etc.
Our land is surrounded by the forest and it's very silent. We are living in the village named Kadı Köyü. Our land is 8000 m2 and we have so many small fruit trees. As the trees are baby now we have to take care of them so carefully. We plant also so many kinds of veggies. If you are vegeterian or vegan you can also prepare your own food or we can do it together. We make our own yogurt and cheese at the farm. We have a sustainable life there as the city centre is far from there. In the village there are no shops or markets. We have a car in any case something happens. We are 7 km far from the hospital. We have a straw house with three private rooms with double and single beds for the volunteers. We are looking for hardworker volunteers. We work 5 days in a week and 5 hours in a day. Sometimes we do yoga .
We have limited internet only for whatsupp for communication as we live far from the city.
Also we are looking for non smokers.
We need help for finishing the structures that we couldn't finish. We have animals (chickens, dogs ) so we need help for animal care.
Sharing is careing. We want to share all of our experinces with you and learn from you for a better world. Create not waste.
