We are a couple who lives in the camping place around Dumanlidag region connected to the Menemen town in İzmir. Our place is 20 km faraway from Menemen and actually out of the small village which is called Turgutlar. There is no road for car, no city electricity, and also almost there is no neighboor except three different couples who lives like us at 1 km distance. But we have very beatiful nature including a nice stream and waterfall in the forest. Four years ago we built a natural home from mud and now we are making new one with earthbag dome tecnique. Also we are pretty busy with sustainable and ecological gardening for our food. This summer we especially need help about natural building. As you guess that work a little bit tiring but we plan to make it slow and with joy. We tend to see work as a game and here we dont work we play. We also try to improve our community skills and think a lot about how we break hiyerarchie and ensure naturally act about tasks... We need sharing experience about farming, gardening too. At these busy days any help is apreciated. We like to make music and all other activities which make us happy. İf you come you dont match with so many works but you see more relaxing, sharing and discovering the ways make us happy.
