We are a small community building an eco village. Since we started this journey four years ago, we have learned a lot (mostly through mistakes) and had many wonderful experiences. We received a lot of questions about what it takes to live in a self-reliant way, and decided to create educational programs to help others learn to live in a low impact, sustainable way. We are concerned that peoples’ options in life are becoming increasingly dependent on institutions such as governments, banks, food stores and other corporations that may not act in the best interests of people, and of the natural environment. It is our mission to continue researching and sharing the best methods, systems, and skills to empower people to build their own communities, on their own terms, in control of their own sustainable resources.
We request a video meeting with everyone applying to volunteer. To apply please message us with the following information:
1. Tell us a bit about yourself and your trip. We want to get to know the people who will join our community.
2. What interests you about volunteering at an eco village?
3. How long are you looking to volunteer for? (minimum 3 weeks)
4. Are you willing to allow us to run a criminal background check on you? If it will show anything, please tell us upfront, we understand some crimes are from mistakes, or are political, and that people can change. We may still be willing to host you, we just want to know beforehand.
5. your phone number on whatsapp or telegram, or an email we can use to send you our volunteer information sheet
6. a few days and times you are available to talk on video (based on time in Turkey, GMT+3)

We are all about hands-on, experiential learning here. You'll learn the basic skills and methods we use here at the eco village, by doing them yourself. Additionally, theory based seminars and discussions are periodically offered during non-work hours, covering topics relevant to the work we do here, such as planning a self reliant homestead, and managing off grid water and power systems.

We provide volunteers with a variety of accommodations, including a bed in a shared dormitory, a private room in a house, a caravan, or a tent, depending on what is available when they arrive. Volunteers can also bring their own caravans, as long as we plan ahead to keep space available.
We provide fresh, healthy food supplies for volunteers to make their own meals with. Family style dinners are provided on some work days.
Turkey is full of wonderful places and experiences, and we are lucky to have many near the eco village. We organize one or more non-work related group activities each week that could include swimming in the river, hiking to the 3500 year-old ancient city and rock tombs of Kaunos, a boat trip to the famous Iztuzu beach on the Mediterranean, where sea turtles nest, soaking in natural hot springs, and move or game night.
