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 ... more inside

In the summer work will usually mostly be outside.

We also have a few beehives, and helpers are welcome to help with their care if they so wish, but that is not required. ;)

We have just started a multifunction business in our small community just about in the middle of Lappland. Our base is an old schools building where most of the activities are to take place. These include handcrafts, artistic creation, gardening, traditional agriculture like reindeerhearding, sustainable environmental development, social work and healthcare. As we also include natural economy in our practices we also do fishing, hunting and gathering, which are still predominant in the area. We are gladly involved in local community projects. For now one of the main projects is repairing and renovating the newly aqcuired building, so there is plenty of work.
One of our numerous functions is to invite people to come and stay with us and exchange skills and knowledge and inetarct in the local community. Another is to help further a local bioenergy project. We also have enough room to to offer guesthouse type accomodationto both paying and work exchange guests.

I'm renting out a few rooms by airbnb and booking too.

We are Marja (finnish sign language interpreter, homemom, from Finland) and Mick (carpenter, from Ireland) and we have two small kids Leo (soon 3 years) and Luna (9 months old). We live in the countryside in North Karelia 20 km from Joensuu center.

Our project is to build a small straw bale round house to be our home. We have decided to settle down in Finland and after a few years of thinking we decided to build our own home instead of buying an old house. After that decision was made we bought 5 hectares of land in December 2016. We bought it very close (500m) from where we live now and also close to an organic farm Pikkunuppu where Marja has grown up.

We have now cleared the road to the house, applied for building permission and gotten it and had the trees cut to boards for the house. After we got the building permission we cleared the building plot from trees and we did a natural stone foundation. Now (august, september, october) is the time to build a timber floor and h... more inside
