Marmariç Ecological Settlement

The farm is located on a mountainous area, 70 km away from İzmir. 9 adults and 2 children live in the farm. The hosts who have experience as architects and NGO workers, are growing cherries, apples, grapes, olives, vegetables, walnuts, almonds, lavender, sage. They make molasses from grape, berries and cherries, and olive oil and soap from olives. The farm is the centre of Permaculture Institute of Turkey and hosts permaculture courses and trainings on various ecological issues.
