Fej is an island in the southern part of Denmark with 460 inhabitants. It has become a trend to move to Fejoe. Young people with families settle here and babies are born. This island is quite special for our abilities to work together on various projects.
At the age of 76 I am very vital. However, I appreciate help in my garden. I grow as much food for my own needs as possible. Over the last 5 years Young Helpers and I have gradually converted lawns to beds, where I can grow food. I have created a Key-hole mandala for intensive growth of vegetables. I also grow medical plants in a Medicine Wheel. New this year is a huge tunnel green house, where I am going to grow vegetables for self-sufficiency
I have quite a lot of garden experience, having had various gardens in my life and grown medical plants for more than 20 years. I have many books about herbs, gardening and spiritual books.
If you are interested in medical plants there are many possibilities to learn about them and I will guide you through your studies. I am very interested in what is happening with our planet now and how we can live a life benefitting THE GREATER WHOLE.
Fej is a very pretty island with coasts everywhere. I live 500 meter from the best bathing beach with a bridge.
I expect you to have practical skills and experience and being able to work on your own, when the job is given and clarified. Working hours are 20-25 a week. You are free over weekends.
During the season there will be weeding and cutting hedges. I make as many plants as possible and have a small greenhouse. I usually do not take more than 2 Woofers at a time. I also appreciate help in the house and cooking.
You will be sleeping upstairs where there are two rooms. You are supplied with sheets and towels.
I am a vegetarian. I live of vegetables from the garden or the island. I cook with butterbeans, lentils, chick-peas and make pts and other dishes with nuts and almonds. I use eggs for pts and cakes. You can get dairy products and I do keep some tinned Tuna and Mackerel for Wwoofers. The fruit trees in the garden are small yet, but usually some fruit is available on the island.
We do have a grocer with some organic products.
If you are on a special diet for various reasons you must expect to bring food for that or eat what is available on the island.
