The farm is surrounded by the beautiful nature of Lapland, stunning ski slopes as well as cross-country skiing trails, snowshoeing trails and fine hiking trails in the summer as well as waterways for canoeing.

We run an internship program for people interested in working with huskies in a semi-professional capacity. In other words, we don't just take people as volunteers and expect them to poop. Rather, we have a systematic training system in place which is an extension of the system in place for paying clients who want to participate in the husky lifestyle for short periods of time.

Interns learn about and participate in the daily and weekly tasks that need to be completed on the farm. The first week is a bit of a baptism of fire guided by a daily mentor in which there is complete immersion into every aspect of life here.

The degree to which people can participate in the range of roles available on the farm depends on the length of their stay, their expertise coming in, and the level of interest in the various roles.

Duties change with the seasons from one-on-one dog training and construction / maintenance work in the summer, to dog-conditioning and safari preparation work in... more inside

Help is needed feeding and cleaning animals, training and helping with huskies, helping with customers (at winter time), and taking care kids (usually play, play and play again :) ). If you want, you can take part of housework like cooking or gardening.

We have a log home in a beautiful hill station in Lapland. We have a yurt in the forest near by that has to be warmed up and taking care of. And plough snow. I give sound healing there and it will be used for women circles and other small happenings around healing, coming together and creating a place for everybody to be seen and heard.
We plan to have chickens on the coming summer, starting to build it up in June, and need help for that. Also making a greenhouse.
Now the jobs are warming up the yurt and taking sometimes care of my three years old, social and joyful son.
This area is an old old holy place, and Pyhä-Luosto national park is next to. A lot of nature to be seen and experienced.

Building a permaculture farm.

Hey!
Here in the most beautiful Central Finland, we have a nice piece of land and a farm where my Grandparents used to live years ago. While traveling and also volunteering abroad for winters, the project has only been under a slow development but now it's the time to really get into it!

All the millions of ideas what's going to happen in here in the future are endless. At first, let's just say that it's going to regenerate and improve life of anyone who are staying, visiting, hearing, seeing or feeling the area. From the smallest bacteria to humans and towards the other creatures they interact, oh what a chain is it!

So let's start from the beginning. First step is to have a shelter to as many as possible, and it's going quite nicely, there are many buildings on an area we can use. Biggest thing is already done, since we did build a nice outdoor toilet couple years ago. At the moment, the main house is the best for accommodation but for more ... more inside
