My name is Kara and I decided to leave the madness of the big city of Amsterdam to live off the grid in Turkey.

I have a nice old style stone house in the beautiful mountains near Emirdag, Afyon, which is a 2 hour drive from Ankara.

The land is open and spacious, with areas given over to living, farming, grazing, herbs, flowers and woodland. The valley below gives open views to beauty of this region. The place is in the heart of nature and in some degree isolated but yet close enough to a village and town. This is for the adventurers out there, who want to enjoy nature as nature intended. The local community here is always on hand to offer advice and to place objects or concepts into context - they are connected to this land in a deep, yet simple way - they embody all that is good and positive about Turkey.

My vision and projects for this land is, in order:

1) We run a breakfast service in the village for locals who live all over the world but come back for summer time. I need insightful people who are willing to get up early around 5am to help during summer until the end of september.

2) From September to mid November I need people who can help starting preparation of the the Vinyard. from making the land and soil ready to planting the grape vines.

3) For winter months when there would be not much work outdoor I am interested in skillful and creative minds who can help me with proceeding with on-line promotons, fundrasing, and marketing.

4) All year long I am reaching out to those who have practical and resourceful skills in on-line fundrasing.

5) I am very interested in people who can help promoting this beauitiful space as a retreat/workshop center.

In the end this would be a center that can be fully run by international volunteers.
