  • Descripción


    We are looking for long term volunteers, preferably couples, as well as short term volunteers who would like to share our life and help us with ongoing works and daily activities.
    Also we prefer non-smokers.
    We live in yurts and we are building an ecological house using stones, clay ,straws and wood in a beautiful olive garden. We also have another garden higher in the mountains with nice weather in summer time and many fruit trees.
    The farm is located in the Ovacık national park in the west part of the mountains of Karlık near Izmir. The area is in the middle of nature with only a few people living here and there. Izmir airport is only 90 minutes from here, Bayındır is the next bigger village and 25 km far away, the next small village is 7 km from here. Our land is 50.000m2 in middle of a unique ecosystem and a very rich flora and fauna. 900 years old chestnut trees, 500 years old oak trees and 50 years old cherry trees are situated here, where we are living. Cherries, walnuts, apples, pears, grapes, different kinds of plums and many more fruits are at the land.
    Fruits and veggies are produced and processed here for own uses and some for barter or sharing. Lavender and other herbs are picked as well. A flower garden feeds our honey bees. Besides of all this there are many beautiful walking paths to discover, planting trees and live the rural live.
    Who are we? Veysi is a former carpenter and internal design architect and the guy who builts everything. Türkan is the woman behind that all and loves saving and sharing seeds, cooking and organizing.

    Only Turkcell and vodafone GSM coverage available in the farm area. WI-FI connection available for everyone.

  • Alojamiento


    We have built 8 yurtes ( mongolian tents) from 12- 40 m2 in our ateliers and are using those for sleeping, kitchen, hamam/bathroom or workshop. We are building all our furnitures and yurtes and everything out of local materials from the woods nearby or local. We are trying to produce our own food, and buying things that we couldn't produce. We would love to share our kitchen with you.
