Hello!

I live in Uusi-värtsilä, a little village in Tohmajärvi, North-Karelia, close to the Russian border. Here can be found forests, bogs, remains of stoneage villages, springwaterlakes, rivers, wild animals, clean air and interesting people. Perfect!

I'm a 39 years old wood artesan.
I live in a old wooden house that previously housed 6 families. There is no running water or electricity in the house. Outdoor drytoilet. The house is slowly renovated a bit here and there. The garden is slowly getting some more apple trees, and other perennial plants.
There is one greenhouse in the garden and a second one is beeing built.

I have a little workshop where I sometimes make bentwood furniture and old style handicrafts. I invite helpers to share the costless joy of gardening, handicrafts, yoga, making tinctures, cooking, baking treebarkbread, picking berries, mushrooms, wild edible plants, spruce resin balm, herbs and so much more. I think the world has gone more or less crazy so I try to do something different. I strive to create as little waste as possible and to have a neutral carbon footprint. My goal is to live as sustainably and resilient as possible, learning more every day. Sometimes free handicraft courses are arranged at the house for small groups. There is many different things to see, do and experience. Hiking, fishing catfood, yoga (6 days a week), astrology, handicrafts, art, sauna, canoe, swimming, living etc. I have a scooter, wheelchair with engine, bicycles to use and a little boat a bit further away from the house. If needed I can borrow a car.

Helpers have their own room, Wi-fi

The food is vegan/wild, there is two cats in the house.
