We are living in Urla kusçular, 5200m2 olives and walnuts and figs and mulberries are our plants here. We are always doing sth exciting like watching the olives grow and constructing all sorts of youtube video diy stuff.

if you prefer staying "offshore" with less modern life and more camp site flair, then
the erdship is your go:

The Erdship is in a small village 12 km to Güzelbahçe and 35 km to the city center of Izmir. there is a bus every morning at 7 and every evening at 5pm.
There we have to build up a place for living first, than we will move on to do some more cool stuff. The Erdship needs some work indoors and than the erdship is ready to live in. outsite there needs to be more gardening to be done. The grapes need pruning in february and march.
grey/black water treatments, solar heating, rocket stove and other cool stuff is due to be built.

Real helpers are needed, people who can do projects on their own, whohave some ideas and can finish some task without exploiting more energy than giving.
So maybe you are interested in helping us.
we are easygoing people and we appreciate when our helpers are helping like they are at their own home. We are searching for friends, playing "farming and sustainability"on the land as we do it.

two pieces of land 8750m2 and 9000 m2 in the mountains of Güzelbahçe, izmir will be transformed in a sustainable living area with earthship and permaculture.
Another lot of 5200m2 is in the peninsula Urla/izmir, where we actually live.

we are searching for crazy people who want to help with all sorts of gardening, building an earthship, building high raised garden beds and greenhouses and much more. There is always a lot to do like picking up almonds from the trees or watching the grapes grow.

A native english or german speaker could help with the education of my daughters while chilling in the garden.

We have started to build an earthship out of tires and bottles and we are now building the inside of the "erdship". We have to start to grow trees and plants of all kinds now before the spring.

In Urla, 40km to izmir, we are starting up a permaculture vegi garden in 2016 (thats now) and retrofitting the house into an ecofriendly building.

there is a beginning of a worm farm as well. so lots of things to do.
