About Inan Mayis Aru

Being grown-up in northern Eagean countryside of Turkey visiting family house in the village often I have a basic knowledge of traditional and conventional agriculture practices ffrom childhood.

I've been working as a translator since 2004 and after moving to İstanbul I had encountered with Fukuoka San's natural farming philosophy. I have participated in Turkish editions of Masanobu Fukuoka's books. I had also attended a 2-day workshop on natural farming principles and practices by one of Fukuoka San's pupils/followers, Panos Manikis, in İstanbul in 2010.

I am also one of the translators of A Designer's Manual by Bill Mollison which is an on-going project and the book will be published soon hopefully. As the translator of the book I have partially attended the PDC by Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton but got my certificate later on in 2012 during PDC course by Mustafa Bakır and Rhamis Kent.

Since 2004 I had many attempts to leave the city and live in the country. I have visited many organic farms, working as a volunteer. I also had brief periods of working on my own land, once in Fethiye for 6 months and once in Çanakkale for a year.

After living at one of the Princess Islands (Burgaz)for 6 months I moved back to my village in Canakkale with my girlfriend. We planted vegetables, made jams from our own fruits, hunted mushrooms, made our own cheese, grown 5 acres of chickpeas for a year before moving to Muğla, Gökova. Here we are practicing natural farming in a village.

I am also a practioner of Zen, Tai Chi Chuan and cycling.
