Building up a farm and a retreat center (yoga, diving, outdoor activities). Small scale farming and a few animals. At times lots of building going on. Time for talks, walks, cooking and outdoor activities. But no room for laziness or clumsiness.
There is a great interest in permaculture as an approach to nature.
We are in need of visitors that inspire and share knowledge.
We accept people that bring a skill. Practical skills the will lead to real results. Maybe people that wants to have independent projects: building something, growing something (we have more land than we can plant on). Maybe returning year after year seeing things develop. You will no doubt be inspired yourself.
This is experimental. Trial and error.
6 hour efficient independent workdays outside!

At the end of a dirt road, very quiet, lots of nature.
15km to civilization, shops and buses. 15 km to Lysekil, summer marine activity town.
No nicotin. No mindless surfing on internet. No television.
When you apply: describe yourself. We live in a close community and are looking for personal chemistry.
