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. In addition t... more inside

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THE AD IS NO LONGER VALID.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.

We are located in Savitaipale, southern Finland. Our area includes a restaurant, hostel and hotel. In the restaurant, job would be washing dishes, cleaning tables, serving food and basic cleaning. In our hotel and hostel the job would be cleaning rooms: making beds, hoovering, cleaning toilets, laundring and removing dust.

Savitaipale is a peaceful municipality. We have few beaches where you can swim and sunbathe, altough water can be chilly. You can row a boat and go hiking! We have some beautiful and historical hiking trails with beautiful landscapes. There's also many tennis courts where you can go and play and we have a football field right next to them. These are located very near our place, only 300-700 meters far. Our nearest city, Lappeenranta, is half an hour drive to the south and there are many shops and wildlife if you want to go and have fun.

Hello!

We are a Finnish family of 6, Antti and Antje, the children Touko 10, Louna 7, Loviisa 5 and Akseli 3 years old. We are slowly re-building an old school to an international art center and our new home.

The sleeping will be either outside in tents or on mattresses inside. We have a kitchen and a sauna in the garden.

Our house is close to the biggest lake of Finland, Saimaa (100m walk) and surrounded by forest. The next bigger city Lappeenranta is around 25 km away and the nearest shop about 8 km. In the free time you can enjoy the lake-side nature: swim, paddle, row, hike or bike.

To join this project, please, write to us and ask for more information!

*****
Unfortunately we can not host Helpx volunteers around all year. But still, there is always a lot of work to do in our renovation project. So if you can live without comfort and if you are skilled carpenter or metal artist we would be glad to have you here any time. Please, contact us!

We are a family farm busy with small scale agriculture, forestry and beekeeping. We're hoping to find help especially for June, as the beginning of summer is always a busy beekeeping season. We would love to host a helper interested or already experienced in beekeeping, but we also appreciate help in gardening, cooking and making firewood. A summer guest with skills in photography would also be most welcome, as we are planning a website for our farm and hope to have new photographs of the farm and its surroundings taken for the site.

We are a family of four: parents and two small daughters. We're looking for a volunteer who genuinely likes to be around small children and who sees a farmstay not only as volunteer work abroad but also as cultural exchange and a chance to get to know new friends.

We can only take one volunteer at a time, or possibly a small family. There is a small and cozy cottage near the house for your accommodation. You're most welcome to have breakfast, lunc... more inside

Hello! :)

We are a Finnish family of five persons. Dad Timo, mum Päivi and youth Ville (21 years), Salla (19 years) and Kaisa (16 years). In our family there also belongs a cat called Miisu and a Samoyed puppy called Mosku. We are an outgoing and active family that loves nature and doing things by ourselves. Salla has been a volunteer worker through Helpx this winter. She stayed in France for a month with her Danish boyfriend and knows how it is to be a helper and what helpers wish from a host family. :)

We are offering a homestay for about two weeks or as fixed for two helpers (a couple or friends) in two totally different places in Finland during June and July depending on the time you would arrive and what you would be interested of. We live in Southern Finland in a town called Hämeenlinna and there is some work you could help us with at our home. We also have a cottage in Inari, Northern Lapland. The cottage is not totally f... more inside
