Köyüm Sürmeli - Kazım Tuncay

Sürmeli village organic agriculture and eco-tourism project is being run by Sürmeli women movement. This project is supported by 19 Mayıs University, Bafra Municipality, Bafra Agriculture Directorate and Samsun Metropolitan Municipality. The project involves 5 villages.
Sürmeli, a green village with three rivers, is located on the way to Nebiyan mountains. People of the village migrated from Kavala (Greece) after World War I and founded this modern village. They have grown high quality tobaccos for many years.

The host Kazım Tuncay, who is a retired teacher, was born in this village. Following his retirement, he came back home after 50 years. Later he sought the possibility of organic farming and eco-tourism, and lead the farmers for a village-wide project. With the support of local authorities, now there is a growing number of organic farmers and even a marketplace in the village where only organic produce is sold. 25 members of the women movement are getting ready for eco-tourism, in collaboration with the municipality.

Teacher Kazım is a role model trying to encourage other farmers for organic agriculture and eco-tourism. He grows organic hazelnut in 6 thousand square-meters. He used to be a teacher of painting and graphic arts, and still paints in his spare time. He speaks basic English. The volunteers will not only help with the hazelnut garden but they can also help and learn from other organic farmers in the village. If you are interested in arts and painting, you can join Kazım in his workshop.   can benefit organic hezelnut garden, enother organic fields, greenhouses and painting studio that is done art workings.
