We are a couple living and working in Norway´s largest ecovillage. In weekends and holidays we travel to our conference-center in Sweden. Since we are working (teacher, therapist, holistic organization) during the week, we have started to feel the burden of work in the weekends in our spare time. We need help in May/June to August/September.

GaiaGården Conference Center is a peaceful place at the border between Norway and Sweden. It started as the local school in 1953.

We renovated and made the school into a bed- and breakfast in 2010 - with facilities for workshops, conferences, retreats, festivals, concerts.
Our pillars are ecophilosophy, holism and equality.

The kitchen is equipped for serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
There are two big rooms – one for yoga, arts, movies and workout (the ”Yogaroom”) – the other for concerts, dancing, lectures and workshops.
There are 4 double rooms and one room with 4 beds with mini kitchen and fridge.
We have 2 showers and 4 toilets.
There is a room dedicated to reading and different media with big sofas and a conference-table (the ”Worldroom”).
The dining room is full of light and memories. (If you listen closely, you might hear the children talking and laughing.)

Outside is a big lawn for football, all sorts of sports and games, tents and concerts. We have a herb circle, strawberry field, flowerbeds, two campfires with benches and a playground for children.

Fields of flowers, grass and woods surrounds GaiaGården. There are small lakes for fishing and swimming near by and we have a canoe.

15 minutes drive from here is a huge shopping center where you can buy everything you need. There are buses, but they are not frequent.

We need help with:

Cutting grass, painting, repairing all sorts of things, carpentry, weeding, making new places in the garden or the surroundings for meditation, creative garden designs, plumbing, cleaning, our webpage, arranging retreats and workshops, taking care of visitors, making food and help us get more visitors….

We are looking forward to hear from you.
