  • Description

    Description

    Although we have acquired the land in 2009, we had to wait till we actually founded the association. That was on the 18th of January in 2010. We have 24 members at one of the extending branches of mythological Mt. Ida in the Northern Aegean Coast of Turkey. We are located in a mountain/forest village.

    The fields of the association and members are occupied with traditional and contemporary farming practices working hand-in-hand with the village neighbors sharing the knowledge and experience. While the traditional structure and procedures are being captured and recorded, contemporary applications like sustainable water usage, conservation of the natural resources, compost and mulch production are being delivered to the villagers by leading with example.

    Our camp caravan site and mountain house enables us to promote ecological tourism programs to the interested groups including trekking, aqua trekking, photo safari, bird and wild life watching, tractor nature tours and local cuisine workshops with herbs. These programs enable our village to reach the rest of the world.

    We also carry the expectation of a reverse immigration towards our village differentiating the products that increases the market value resulting in better prices for a better income to the village households.

    As of September 2012 association and members have approximately 75 acres of cultivated land combined. Over three thousand fruit variety and walnut trees are planted. Local wheat selection is being produced with a wide range of vegetables while different species of aromatic and therapeutic plants are being tested and grown to determine the best balance.

    We welcome the guests in our mountain house or the village neighbor houses. We can accommodate up to 50 guests for special events like workshops.
