You can start with translating this poem to your language

Wake Me Up From The Fear

I make a notation of my essence
Glee rich in minor
Melancholy is moaning
That it didn’t get even today
The sorrow waits
It’s own turn
The emotions are competing
Of their unravel
I deny them
From hurting you
And I make the keyboard
A bunching bag for my fingers

You also can tell me if you are interested to perform with me.

We don't take new volunteers in 2017!

Welcome to help us build up our new intentional community! We are located in southern Finland in a "secret" valley between forest and a protected nature reserve with crystal clear lakes and exciting rocky high hills. 7 adults and 6 kids share the vision of "keeping the sacred in the centre" and the basic communication tool is the Circle. We are open minded people who love to experiment with natural building(1 professional natural builder), art(3 artists) and body therapies(5 professionals practising massage, tantra, dance, etc...)

Main activity right now is building up of our infrastructure. Throughout the summer there will be outside living in teepees and yurtas and day to day work with many natural building techniques. From time to time there will also be workshops held.

The main purpose for us is living with nature and creating beauty around us with every action we take.

This fall and winter there will still be some natural build... more inside

I live in small village of Rääkkylä at beautiful eastern side of Finland with my husband and two children. I'm an artist and maker of soaps, salves, herbal remedies and many kind of handicrafts.
Nearest shop is 2,5 km away in the village and nearest city Joensuu is 60 km away. Our house is heated with wood. We have extra room upstairs for visitors and helpers, some times this area can be used for workshops. Sauna is heated every week and for winter season twice a week there is local sauna and avanto (= hole in the ice where people go to swim)just five minutes walk from us. We live next to biggest lake in Finland.

At the moment (winter) I need mostly help to take care of kids and house work so i can work with other things. Summertime we need help with garden and many kind of little things. We follow the cycles of nature so wintertime is more quiet but spring, summer and autumn there's lot's of things to do!

If you have interest for plants and their healing powers I'm glad to... more inside

I'm an organic mushroom and hemp farmer. My main product is Reishi, but I grow also other mushrooms. Mostly I just sell spawn for home growers. The actual farm is south of Oulu, but I have some activity in Rovaniemi as well. Most work is not mushroom related. I have a small garden in front of the house which need to be taken care of. During September and October your job would be berrie picking and mushroom hunting. During the winter I need help with general household maintenance. I like social activists, musicians and permaculture people. I'm involved in a new socioeconomic innovation called Copiosis and Rights of nature Europe. The goal for the latter is to make nature a legal person within the whole EU. My mushroom company Nordic Fungi is also searching good photographers and video editors. I can host you for a few days so you'll be able to see Rovaniemi. For longer stays I can suggest you to my friend who has a permaculture farm outside the city.

We are a family of four. Susanne, Kjell, Linnea (19, does not live at home) and Julia (16). Our property is 6 km from the main road out to the archipelago, so easiest if you have own vehicle for transport if you want to explore the area. The house is old and partly renovated. Peaceful setting in a village in the countryside with a big garden, pond and BBQ area. 300 meters to the sea. We have 2 cats. Bikes are available to use. The guest room for you to use is in a separate building close to the main house and has got electricity but no toilet or shower. Toilet & shower in the house can be used, (also a long drop outside). The shower in the house is in the basement of our house and kind of a temporary solution.4 hrs work/day for accommodation and meals. No smoking inside. Short stays. Work that needs doing is gardening, lawn mowing (both ride on and small one) painting, wood splitting, renovations.
We love to meet new people. We speak swedish, finnish and english.

This is a little farm on the western Finnish coastline. We have horses, finncattle, sheep, goats, mini-pigs, geese, cats and a rabbit. We run horseback riding services and have activities for Children, co-operating with the local 4H organization. We are also renovating an old Finnish farmhouse. We would like to have someone who likes working with animals, building/renovation works and/or cooking. We provide all meals, accommodation and free internet for 6 hrs work a day.

This is my home farm, I grew up here, and I'm only just starting. The farm has been out of use for almost 10 years, so all the land is free of synthetic fertilizers, but everything needs to be started, fixed or constructed. I have goats at the moment, but as things progress, I will get more animals. The living quarters are in good shape, and there's plenty of room. I've hosted backpackers via another site last winter, and everyone seem to have enjoyed. This place is in the middle of Lapland, with accordingly short (and hectic) summers. But plenty of wilderness around.

Continued 20.9.2015: Three years in, projects are evolving, new ones arrive. Oiva, my retired father lives here.
Still taking in volunteers and with good experience of them. This has been a working system. The farm is already producing vegetables, eggs, goat milk, meat, etc. but we also gather lots of food straight from the nature, hunt and fish, so we can offer a very local diet for the volunteers.

We are a family with 2 kids (3 and 6 years), several chickens and many friends coming and going. We live in the countryside (17 km to the closest small town) in Southern Finland, renovating our home, an old school, to be a winter-residence and a summerschool for artists and activists one day. We work and live on Do It Yourself-bases, as naturally as possible.

Aune is a performance artist, lecturer and a student of homeopathy, Daniel is a streetmusician, builder and a student of forests. We are interested in natural therapies, dancing, drumming, silence, gardening, politics - among other things.

We are looking for helpers for the busy summer-season: mainly to join in the renovation/construction of the house, but also picking berries for the winter, chopping wood, doing garden-work, and to improvise with whatever comes up. We hope you are not afraid of saw, hammer and other tools. Basic skills in building are appreciated, but if you learn fast and are motivated, it is surely ... more inside

POSITION TAKEN.
THE AD IS NO LONGER VALID.
We live in a small house at the lake side in 40 km from the border with Russia and in 4 km from the city of Simpele. At the site there is also a guest house, summer kitchen and sauna, as well as 100 square meters of mixed forest, which needs cleaning.
We provide accommodation in the guest house and food.
The place is good for fishing, gathering mushrooms and picking berries.
Forest cleaning should take not more than a few days. You can stay with us for a week or so and spend the rest of the time as you please.
