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

We are having around 30 resident husky too. We're very much concentrated for Aurora Boralis observing so this is great place to see them too.
We try to produce as much energy as possible by removable resources that is very hard in winter.
For volunteering there is all kinds of help needing help. From helping in activities to taking care of Huskies. Customer service and good manners are very important too. All abilities for cooking plus. I'd describe the experience teaching, beautiful, arctic and hard.
