We are looking for practical people to help with us in the spring. We are looking for one to two people with experience and abilities with carpentry, machines, can deal with heavy lifting occasionally. Good at working as part of a team and independently.

We are currently in a process of development. We have a small community and working group. There is a permaculture plan for our property, which is a part of a larger plan for the area. We aim to reach a high level of sustainability and community while having fun.

The property consists of a main building, a residents house and a guest house. We have 3,7 ha of grass, vegetable garden, forest, wetlands and we are on the shore of a large lake. We are asking for help with building some of our projects (e.g. greenhouse, toolshed, jetty, maybe even a floating sauna.)
While you stay with us you can experience ecological, permaculture based gardening, food preparation and building techniques. Every week we have yoga classes and sauna evenings which are free for helpers. There are canoes available for a trip on the lake, and a beach nearby.
You will be staying in our small huts sharing a kitchen with other residents. Each hut has two single beds and a hot plate. We cooperate with other exchange hosts in the area so we can offer many opportunities to meet other helpers.
We expect you to work 6 hours a day, 5 days a week during your stay here.
