INTRODUCTION

This is a dream that came to our minds in 2006 and that we have developed by putting different interests, effort and time since that day when we took our first steps in 2008. Between 2013 and 2017, we made an effort for the Beykoz Campus, which broke new ground in Istanbul. Now we hope all of them will be able to move forward with DhamADA as part of the Permakamp Network in solidarity. Due to our design, each campus has its own specific requirements. However, these terms are supported or complemented by other campuses. Now we will experience this for the first time. We repeat our basic ethical principles, as we announced at Permakamp below. This is important because our main principles should be to be sustainable while producing, regenerative agriculture, equitable trade, and respect for ecology.
