Our aim is living a sustainable life in our farms which one is in Turkey and the other is in Thailand. We stay in Turkey April to September and live in Thailand the rest of the year. We planted so many fruit trees, herbs and so many veggies in our farms. Also we are giving ecological courses to the groups. We are in Sakarya which is 200 km far from Istanbul. We bought this land 3 years ago and we built a house with a kitchen, bath and a toilet inside. Also an outdoor kitchen with two stone oven, dry (compost ) toilet and an outdoor bath also. Me and my wife worked so hard. My wife is a physics teacher and I'm a doctor. Nearly ten years ago my wife was interested in ecology and she started doing the physics projects related with ecology. Few years later she quit but continued to research ecology and permanent culture more. After a few years she bought this land and started to built an ecological farm. Two years later I came to help her with a friend. Then we loved each other and get married in a few months. After I came I started doing all the stuff. I worked as a high qualified carpenter, an installer, a builder. So we shared the work. I'm working on building stuff and she is working in the garden. From now on we will stay half of the year in Turkey from April to the end of the August and from September to April in Chaing Mai city in Thailand.

We sometimes do activities for adults or some students such as making compost, compost toilet, how to grow vegetables, how to make your soil better, how to make vinegar, etc.
Our land is surrounded by the forest and it's very silent. We are living in the village named Kadi Köyü As the trees are baby now we have to take care of them so carefully. We plant also so many kinds of veggies. If you are vegetarian or vegan you can also prepare your own food or we can do it together. We make our own yogurt and cheese at the farm. We have a sustainable life there as the city centre is far from there. In the village there are no shops or markets. We have a car in any case something happens. We are 7km far from the hospital. We have a wooden house with very comfortable beds for the volunteers.
