  • Description


    Hi everyone,

    We are building an ecodome (earth bags house) in the beautiful island of Gökçeada (North West of Turkey in the Aegean Sea). We are hosting volunteers who want to help us in building our earth-made home by learning this amazing technique. Volunteers can camp on our beautiful land under olive trees (shower place with spring water and dry toilet set up).
    Gökçeada offers stuning landscapes, from olive groves and Mediteranean maquis to beautiful beaches. Greek and Turkish population shaped its cosmopolite identity that you can appreciate by visiting its stone houses villages.

    Hope to host you soon !
