Akirah garden was my first work experience. Definitely best place where to start your journey. Sara and Suha are more like a family. Their knowledge of organic farming and nature friendly lifestyle is amazing. Work tasks were explained properly and nothing difficult. Also you will have a lot of free time for enjoying the nature and surrounding. Really peaceful location. Learned how to make delicious foods with simple vegetables and rice/. Also Sara's banana bread is amazingly good. In the mornings you can participate in yoga classes, as Sara is amazing teacher. I will definitely come back!

I really enjoyed my stay. The place is really amazing and the family that hosted me is just spectacular, really nice people. Suha taught me a lot about farming and worked together to build a structure. If you need a day off, you can rent a motorcycle for a really cheap price and Suha told me awesome spots to visit. I definitely recommend!

Akirah Garden is a place where you feel at home. You become part of the family at the time you arrive there! They need some people who have skills in carpentry, electrical services or some previous knowledge related to farm work. I believe this could help Suha, Sara and Alaz a lot to evolve their permaculture way of living.
I can never be grateful enough for the life experience they provided me! I miss them all <3

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Akriah Garden. I learnt a lot about farming, construction and Thai and Turkish culture. I like one of the family by Suha, Sara and Alas. They are very accomodating hosts as they live simply with lots of fun. You have many opportunities to go out with them or by yourself to do what you please. I will be back here 😬😬❤️
