We are a family (Selçuk, the owner and his parents) running a Permaculture Farm near Bilecik, 13 km from Gölpazari village. The farm is located just between Istanbul Bursa, Sakarya, Eskisehir and Ankara.

We have chickens, geese, ducks, cats and dogs to take care of; and we are growing all kinds of fruit trees like olive, cherry, apple, pears, grapes, apricots, peaches and so on. We grow them by using ecological methods.
Producing and selling fruits at the eco market in Istanbul is one of our income. Selçuk is spending 3 days a week in he city and you will have to run the everyday life of the farm on your own or with he help of the locals (parents or friend) which means feeding animals, watering the garden, ...

The rest of the week, You will have to help in making preparations: Fruits and veggies are turned into vinegars, pickles, sauces, jam and all sorts of goodies. You may help in cutting wood, gardening, cleaning...

We are making different cosmetics as well with herbs. Have you ever made soap out of olive oil? Using ancient techniques and aromatic plants? Here we go!

There is a lot to do and learn here.
We are in search for very happy and very hardworking, skilful and helpful volunteers. You wanna join? Let’s do it :)
