Hey fellow friends
We are a group of friend recently moved to country side. We are trying to establish a natural life surrounded with plane pine and oak trees. Before getting into permacultural activities first thing we have started to build an earthbag house. Roof is already built and walls raised up to window level.
By this time we live off-grid in the field but we can provide a tent, sleeping mats and blankets as much as you need. Its an insulated field but we have a composting toilet and shower. We have no phone and internet network in the field but almost everyday we go to village teahouse (which is 1 km away from the field).
Another part of our work is taking care of gooses and chickens. We feed them early in the morning and stay there for an hour or maybe more before sunset in order to protect them from falcon attacks. Coop is a little far from the field but we rented a house in the village which also we use to charge our phones or stuff.

We actually are not vegetarian but since we dont have a refrigirator we prefer eating vegetarian
We need some hands to assist us in building, taking care of garden and animals or cooking maybe.
If you would like to join us just let us know

Ida, mountain range near the site of ancient Troy. A classic shrine, Ida was where Paris passed judgment on the rival goddesses and was the scene of the rape of Ganymede. From its highest peak, about 5,800 feet (1,800 m), the gods are said to have witnessed the Trojan War.
Also Mount Ida has some 32 endemic species. Some of these species grow in certain small areas and most of these isolated areas located on the upper part of the mountain and especially around Sarikiz peak. These areas are exposed to direct human impact. As for Flora approiximity of 800 plants belonging to 101 families have been identified by botanists in Mount Ida so far. 77 of these types can be grown only in Turkey. 29 out of 77 are endemic. On the southern slopes of the mountains up to 200 meters from the sea level, olive trees, about 800 meters pine trees , up to 1.500 metres larches and beaches can be grown as naturally. Endemic plants can be seen over 1.550 metres on the mountains.
