We are the owners of the land as 4 friends. Three of us live on the land continuously. Our friends come to stay here when there's opportunity, we have a cat, ducks and bee hives on the land. We want to multiply our hives, we are currently gathering pollen. Our main goal is to produce the food that we consume. Create a sustainable life.

We are currently building earthbag houses, we need help with the building of these houses, It's 21,000 squaremeters land and there are approximately 300 olive trees in it, help for maintenance and harvest of the olive trees is also required. Gathering and processing the wild plants such as thyme and daphne will be also part of the chores that need to be done.

There's a natural pool, the sea is 18km away from the land. The transportation will be provided by us, we have 2 cars. We have a house in a village 3 km away from the land. The place of the land is in Beyler village of Seferihisar which is a region of Izmir. You can access to the center of town by municipality bus. It's 1.5 away to the center of Izmir.

The benefits of coming and helping us for travelers will be learning how to build their eco-friendly and natural earthpack houses. It's a learning process of building their own houses also. If desired, people who volunteer here can learn beekeeping, too. The harvesting and processing the olives from the trees and wild plants is going to be learnt here.
