Hello traveler, welcome to our land!

We are looking for volunteers to help us with building our home, that can contribute with their hands and hearts. We prefer if you can stay for at least a week. Volunteers will assist with building, gardening and cooking. We will be mostly working on our strawbale house. There is a job for everyone and the more the merrier really works in this building method :) You can bring your child and/or pet if you want, they are all welcome.

Work
Working is done on a voluntary basis so you can take time for yourself, we believe that the best work comes when you feel good :) That being said we wish our volunteers to share the workload so around 4-5 hours of work a day should be expected. During the summer time to avoid overheating, we start working early in the morning, work till midday and take a break till 17:00 and work again until the sunset (around 20:00). If you don't want to be a part of building work, you can help us with cooking or preparing the garden sites.

Accommodation
There is enough space available within the house with electricity and running water.
We have limited internet so if you want to use it we expect you to contribute for refilling it (gift economy! :))

Food
We live a mostly vegetarian lifestyle. We expect you to not bring any meat products.

Facilities
The nearest small shop is 7 km away from the village. We will provide food so you don't need to worry about that but if you have special requirements, you need to take care of them yourself. We will be visiting the market every Wednesday where you can get what you need.

Logistics
We are located in Pamukova village in the city of Sakarya, not far from Istanbul. Just write to us where you are coming from so that we can describe how to get here, it's fairly easy.

If you want to join us please contact us and provide your full name, date of arrival, your skills/ interests and how long you plan to stay as far in advance as you can.

Looking forward to meeting you!
