we have an ecological farm which is located on the south shores of the Marmara Sea. It is olive orchards of 5 acres with a boutique hotel construction and a farm house. Farm has cats, dog and horses. It is more of a family life in the farm. We work, eat and have fun all together. It is an old farm established in 1944 descended from generations to generations. In addition to the olive trees, we have apple, citrus, tangerine, walnut, berry and pear trees. Also palm trees and pine trees for the decoration.

Nearest village center is Ocaklar, only a km away. Larger township is Erdek, 7km's. There is a regular shuttle system running back and forth every half an hour and every hour during the winter. Farm is near the beach and the upper border on the skirts of Kapidag peninsula the hills are covered with pine and mix tree varieties.

However we do not tolerate substance abuse or the usage of narcotics. volunteers are welcomed no less then 2 weeks considering the arrival, departure and orientation days.
