The Rockport Public Library in partnership with the Camden Conference present "Turkish Delights: A Wwoofers Odyssey in Asia Minor". This presentation slide show and talk highlight a recent foray into Turkey's organic farming scene. The presenter, Chuck Marecic discusses his experiences on 4 farms in 4 diverse regions of the country--Eastern Black Sea, Central Anatolia and the Aegean, as well as provides some insights into Turkey's organic farming movement.

Chuck Marecic is the Director of the English Program at Penobscot School in Rockland where he brings people to Midcoast Maine from all over the world to study English and share cultures and experiences. He also lives off the grid, gardens organically and is inspired by the principles of permaculture.
