    Dear Workawayers,

    Season is opening, our house is ready for staying and weather is warm enough finally.

    This year we are focusing on rain water collection projects, so if you have relevant experience or general experience in building things, we may put you in front of the queue.

    PS: Also if you are thinking for a 5 day vacation in a farm please find somewhere else. We would like to have meaningful connections and an efficient volunteering so we are focusing on longer stays.
    The Farm has been pioneering in natural, ecological and sustainable farming since 2002. We are a certified organic farm set over 1.7 km2 mainly focusing on growing vegetables from natural seeds with no fertilizers or pesticides.

    We have a stable team of 8 women working on the farm, and get extra labor for demanding and specialty jobs, we don't expect our volunteers to keep up with them, they are professionals and have been doing this their entire life.
    We use ideas from old wisdom, bio-dynamic farming, ecologic sustainable systems, and where ever we get them.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Our founder Berin Erturk is renowned in teaching principals of organic/natural farming as well as headaches of managing an organic farm, with more then 25 years of experience so your experience here will be an eye-opening one.
    You can also learn how any plant is produced from seed to produce, how to grow without fertilizers utilizing natures own tools to replenish soil, even some natural tricks farmers do to make things taste better. :)
