This place was founded on 18th of January 2010 with 24 members at one of the extending branches of mythological Mt. Ida in the Northern Aegean Coast of Turkey. It is located in a mountain & forest village named Cazgirler.

On the lands of the association and members, traditional and good farming practices are being used hand-in-hand with the village inhabitants sharing the knowledge and experience. While the traditional structure and procedures are being captured and recorded, contemporary applications like correct water usage, protection of natural resources, compost and mulch production are being delivered to the villagers by leading with example.

Our camp caravan site and mountain house enables us to promote ecological tourism programs to the interested groups including trekking, aqua trekking, photo safari, bird and wild life watching, tractor nature tours and local cuisine workshops with herbs. These programs enable our village to reach the rest of the world.

We also carry the expectation of a reverse immigration towards our village differentiating the products that increases the market value resulting in better prices for a better income to the village households.

As of September 2012 association and members have approximately 75 acres of cultivated land combined. Over three thousand fruit variety and walnut trees are planted. Local wheat selection is being produced with a wide range of vegetables while different species of aromatic and therapeutic plants are being tested and grown to determine the best balance.

We are capable of welcoming a maximum of 35 guests when including the usage of the houses of the village neighbors.

We are renovating the HQ and opened up a rep. office in Dedetepe Ecological Farm in Kucukkuyu town. Presently accepting helpers at this location
