Hello!



Not available for hosting summer 2017 anymore.




We live in a small farm-like house in South Karelia. This is home for two adults and one dog.

My small business is to produce berry, wild herb and wild mushroom and I am looking for helpers to learn and participate picking up and processing herbs etc. I am also growing up veggies and my green garden needs attention on regular basis. I also do catering sometimes.

Other jobs at our farm are e.g. making firewood, garden, lawn moving, painting, handy crafts etc. Depending on weather we choose the suitable job for the day.

The season for wild herbs has started :) Already there are some herbs and salads available and more is growing all the time. Help is needed to pick up all the good stuff growing so fast :)

Our farm is not officially organic, we produce part of our food here and we don't use pesticides.

There are few places to dip in to refreshing lake close by, unfortunately not walking distance... more inside

Welcome to join our family community on our new land recently bought last autumn! We have started bringing this old farm land back to life again after decades of abandonment. It’s a very exciting process with endless possibilities and freedom to try out, make experiments and learn. At the moment the circumstances here are very basic and it is also our conscious choice to live simply and close to the land. This place is for you if you enjoy a do-it-yourself attitude, love being outdoors, have adventure spirit and don’t require big comforts as found in the city. We spend most of our time outdoors. We do have electricity in our main house and we are at a biking distance (3km) from a village with all basic services.

We are four adults and four children – all of them under seven years old. We have three nationalities (finnish, swedish and dutch) and our common language is english. We have tiny houses on wheels and yurts as living spaces, a 50m2 house with wood heating and wood stove,... more inside

CALL FOR HELPERS

Our place is located between Turku and Helsinki in the village of Karjalohja on a beautiful hill with a view over fields with crops and horses. Only with a 7 minutes walk you reach the shore of the clean protected Enäjärvi Lake, where we do fishing, rowing, sailing, swimming, picnic, or take tours to the islands. Big forests with berries and mushrooms also surround us. You reach to the Turku-Helsinki express bus stop in 15 minutes with our biogas car. To reach the nearest small village with shop, library, spa, etc. takes 12 minutes by car and 35 minutes on bicycle.

Now this place serves our circle of partners and friends and we hope that one day it can also serve a larger circle. Eventually, it can also become an artist residence and an experimental ground for artistic, ecologic and holistic lifestyle development.

We are developing an old farm into an ecological self-sustainable unit. We are growing biodynamic food and exploring experiments i... more inside

We are bicultural family, who spends summers in Finnish country side near Savonlinna.

There is also some help needed with take care of the land, basic house works, carrying water, wood work, painting, restoration. For take care of children we would require a person who really likes to be with kids and preferably Italian spoken (don't need to be an Italian necessarily), because they are bilingual and need to keep up their second language.

We will offer in change delicious vegetarian meals, own room to stay, tranquility of clean Finnish nature (at least while our bit noisy family is sleeping) and fun time with our not-so-serious family. The house is located about 18 kms from the city. We are surrounded by beautiful forests and from mid July on you can start to find first Chanterelles and blueberries.

Hello !

--- update may 11: summer season is about to begin and we are willing to take helpers to visit Kokemäki. Sorry about delay with the responses, but we will answer to everyone as soon as possible. Quickest way to contact is to call or send text message. ---


I am running a retro-style small hotel/b&b in Kokemäki. Kokemäki is a municipality of almost 8000 inhabitants, situated in the province of Satakunta in southwestern Finland.

We also run a summer cafe in July with our family in an old house called Lääkäri. The Lääkäri house is a unique interior with the original 1930's decor. Traditional finnish old farmhouse with a sauna by the pond. The Finnish movie "Postia pappi Jaaakobille" was filmed in that house.
(movie trailer:http://fi.filmtrailer.com/cinema/1720/postia-pappi-jaakobille.

I welcome English speaking international helpers. I used to work in cruise ships and on those days I travelled for example around the USA. I've lived in New Zealand for four years... more inside
