Hello, Thank you very much for your visiting our profile.

My wife (Ebru) and I (Aydin) run an Alternative Eco Farm; offering Organic Farming .

Our place, is a restored old stone house and surrounding grounds in a modest and remote area of the Ancient Lycian Way. We are located in Cukurbag Village which has an altitude of 500 meters and is within the Ancient Lycian Site of Phellos. Our place is a 15 minute drive to the sea in our nearest town of Kas. Kas is set upon a hillside in the Southern region of Turkey in the district of Antalya. The town is famous for it's ancient Lycian history and today boasts a small but lively fishing, yachting and tourist town.

During your day off, you can also visit Kas and the neighbouring sights. Kas is accessible by shuttle in 15 minutes, though volunteers will need to walk 1 km to the bus stop.

FOOD and ACCOMMODATION: Our home cooked food are mostly vegetarian (from our garden) . We offer volunteers 3 meals per day and a share room with bed separate toilet and shower facilities (couples stay on their own room if we have available room). We are serving the same food that we normally eat and we can offer what's on the table; we do not preper/serv privatly gluten-free, raw food and vegan diet meals.

WHAT TIPE OF WORK: Here at Eflatun, we all work as a team. Volunteers will be expected to assist us with gardening, hoeing, weeding, plantinig vegetable-sapling, harvesting-pruning vagetable, grape, olives, almonds.. feeding chickens, cleanning coops, clearing the rocks - woods, clearing and helping around the house etc.. whatever need in the garden / farm; work is varied.

WHAT SOULD I BRING?
Bring your simple cloths for working & glove, torch/flashlight, bathing suit, treckking/strong shoes, had, slipper, towel-toilet paper, t-shirts, shorts, sun cream, sleeping bag,.. something as a jumper-sweater for chilly-cold evening, raincoat in the Autmn and Spring period..

FOR THE WEATHER FORECAST:
