  • Descripción


    Our farm is situated one-hour inland from Izmir, 5 km away from the nearest town, Turgutlu (known historically as Kasaba). We used to breed sheep, however we do not keep any animals any longer. We have around 200 olive and various fruit trees in two separate fields. Our main focus has become premium quality olive oil. Olives are harvested during October-November for several weeks. In the winter and early spring, we prune our trees and prepare the fields for the next season.

    The area is under constant change so volunteers should be comfortable with this farm in a mixed urban-rural setting. There is still plenty of family-based agricultural activity around. We drive to our farm daily and prefer to sleep in town, a typical inner Aegean one, which is considerable in size with all its buzz and local characteristics.

    A certain level of maintenance is always required to keep the buildings intact. I can also use help with painting, small construction and restoration projects, cleaning and landscaping.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Our concept revolves around olive farm experience, communal living, travel stories and exposure to local history and culture. The most unique aspect will be to see relatively simple life in a traditional mid-size agriculture-oriented Aegean town away from mass tourism and bigger cities. There are some less-known historical and nature sites like Sardis, Mount Sipylus, Lydian tombs of Bintepe worth visiting. You can always reach other well-known locations a few hours away like Ephesus or Pamukkale by bus. It is possible to go hiking around the local hills and villages. There is a decent local winemaker not far from our location open to visitors. There are also various foreign language books you can read while here. We have a projector for watching films at night. Backgammon, puzzles and card games are quite popular among visitors.

  • Ayuda


    You will be helping with seasonal farm work, gardening, digging, lifting, cooking, cleaning, DIY projects etc. Most of our activities are quite physical so be prepared. Any special artistic or technical skills offered by volunteers are also appreciated. People with disabilities are always welcome. This is a communal project and always open to new ideas.

    Spring is here. Over the next few months, we will be weeding, pruning our trees, packing and selling our olive oil. There are also various DIY projects in the pipeline.

  • Alojamiento


    You will get a private room in town where we own an apartment building. The apartments are basic but adequate for most seasons. We tend to cook vegan together while offering some flexibility for non-vegans and others with dietary restrictions. Visitors can also visit various restaurants in town on their own to try other dishes. There is no unlimited broadband internet. It is recommended to get your own sim card if you need constant connection.
