Share my Food Forest Dream in Fethiye, Turkey - creating a Food forest by implementing Permaculture and Natural Farming principles

our farm is 45 km away from Fethiye . it is at the early stage of making a Food Forest dream real . a dream of creating a forest , a food forest , an ecosystem , a sustainable and resilient life for all living beings . we are creating our forest by implementing Permaculture and Natural Way of Farming principles .
*
I am very pleased to welcome you if you like to live with forest philosophy and share a forest dream .
a forest is diversity , diversity is richness . there is no good or bad , with no ethics , no religion , no politics , no weighing machines , no prejudice , no judgements , our ecosystem is a free and open society .
with all living things , plants , animals , human beings ,
forest is living together , sharing the energy of life , universe , and the nature .
forest is sustainable living , hard-work ethic , satisfying and frustrating , fun and challenging , routine and creative .
*
you come here to be a forest dream , to own and live the ecosystem here , to be in it mentally and physically .
*
if you have love in your heart and you feel the soil in your hands and green sweat on your face , it is my pleasure to welcome you . bring your hands and your mind with you to create abundance and love , to create a forest , become soil , a tree , and forest .
*
I know that you are an explorer , adventurer , wayfarer with restless wings and the inability to stay still , the inability to stay in one place , and as I am deep rooted down in soil , I prefer that you come for at least one month so that we can go into the forest dreams , go deeper into the soil and share the life of our tiny friends , bacteria , fungi , all good friends in the soil .. in a shorter time than one month we can only see the trees , not the forest . get closer and closer to the soil to appreciate the immense beauty and generosity that this planet offers .
*
during summer mostly we are busy with watering and harvesting medicinal herbs like lemon verbana , lemon grass , sage , thyme , and lavender .
during october , november and december we harvest and process olives .
january , february , and march , we are busy with the maintainance of our trees , like pruning the trees and preparing and planting saplings .
*
starting from april we have black , white and purple mulberry fruits , and later we have almonds , figs , grapes , pomegranates , plums , apricots , prickly pears , apples and some other fruits .
*
in our house we have 2 rooms with private bath rooms . 2 or 3 friends share a room . also we have 2 wooden cabins , two friends stay in a cabin . we have a common bathroom outside. you may stay in a tent also if you like .
*
I can accept only non-smoker friends .
*
we have internet availability .
*
we have vegetables and fruits of the season in your garden .
you dont pay for the food that the nature has given us generously .
*
after we complete our tasks , we visit our historical places around and beautiful scenery .
in your free day you can go to the beach , visit the city .
*
I speak english , spanish , little french , little russian , but , mostly we try to speak the language of the nature .
*
important :: please make it sure that you have medical insurance that covers your travel .

welcome to share and weave a forest dream , a dream of sustainable living .

only good vibes ... love and light from nature ..
Ali
