Dear Folks, time really flies.
Eight years ago, with my high school buddies, I have founded Agrida Agriculture & Tourism Association. One of the aim of our association is helping locals and villagers in converting the rural areas into ecological places. It will never be enough! Current projects like “Grow local, consume local”, “Natural food for long life”, and discovering the culinary heritage recipes to serve and create related jobs for the local villagers. Anyone can be a participant in our future endeavors!
General description
We opened up an new application region here and wanted to announce that, we accept volunteers of EU, Voluntourists, and WWOOFers. We are in the verge of reformatting a municipality restaurant for locally grown/produced food, wine, etc. We’re also trying to discover the greek culinary heritage: while serving at the outlet, we are intending to archive the recipies, so will not be lost in the pages of history.

History & Location
Agrida Agriculture and Tourism Association was founded on 18th of January 2010 with 24 members at one of the extending branches of mythological Mt. Ida in the Northern Aegean Coast of Turkey. It is located in a mountain & forest village named Cazgirler.

On the lands of the association, traditional and good farming practices are being used hand-in-hand with the villagers, sharing knowledge and experience. While the traditional structure and procedures are being captured and recorded, contemporary applications like correct water usage, protection of natural resources, compost and mulch production are being delivered to the villagers by leading with example.

Our camp caravan site and Agrida Mountain House enables us to promote:
  • Ecological tourism programs to the interested groups including
  • Trekking, aqua trekking,
  • Photo safari,
  • Bird and wild life watching,
  • Tractor nature tours
  • Local cuisine workshops with herbs.
These programs enable our village to reach the rest of the world!

Reverse immigration
We carry the expectation of a reverse immigration towards our village. How? By differentiating the products that increases the market value, therefore resulting in better prices and a better income for the village households.
A variety of products
As of September 2012 association and members have approximately 75 acres of cultivated land combined. We planted over three thousand fruit variety and walnut trees. Also, we produced a selection of local wheat with a wide range of vegetables, and different species of aromatic and therapeutic plants, tested and grown to determine the best balance.
