Since 2000, volunteers from all over the world have been participating in summer programs designed to improve the kids vegetable farm. During the last years we focused to improve more for the facilities of kids and volunteers but not farming method and way. So when we look back in this moment how we do farming and cultivating is not really productive and eco friendly. Even other farmers who doing same work around us are same. Kids/local people work very hard for hall summer but in autumn they got very small harvest compare to their hard work. So since this year we going to develop our farm more as a training center of eco farming for the local people and kids. Local people and kids could learn  in our center basic but very important ecological farming methods and know/how.  We wish to achieve to get biggest amount of harvest, using smallest amount  land.  Volunteers will work in eco vegetable farm and develop eco farming training center. Vegetables from the eco farm will be donated to the center of orphan kids and poor families.
