Last Updated: July 22, 2019

I offer two different types of stay in south-western Norway, neither of which is a farm.

The main events are group sessions at Kvednaflaat, a woodland-cum-holiday centre, which is not permanently lived in.
In†2019 these will run from 4-18 August and 18 August - 1 September.

The area comprises 90 hectares of woodland, a lake, and lots of rock. The location is fairly remote, without through traffic: the nearest public transport is the bus stop in Helleland - an hours walk away and 15 minutes by car. There are no domestic animals other than bees. The work here involves both work in the wood and maintenance and improvements on the buildings. In the past I have organised the work into 5 working days per week ~5hrs per day. Accommodation is in simple rooms with one or two bunkbeds, shared bathrooms, dining room, lounge and kitchen - there usually is the option to have your own bedroom. These weeks tend to be very social and fun. Although the main work is in the woodland it is occasionally possible to combine with a homestay in Sola (an hour away from the woodland by car) helping out with the organic fruit garden or in the house (limited accomodation at this site).

Plans for 2019 include: working in the polytunnel (including adding lots of manure), maintenance inside the main house, painting one of the cabins, growing food (in the polytunnel and outside), filling the woodshed (cutting trees, and chopping stacking the wood) and constructing some fencing. The coordinate reference is the lake by the woodland, which is also where the first five pictures were taken.

The homestay is in Sola close to Stavanger.

We share three meals a day, which can be vegetarian/vegan if you wish.

I expect you to arrange your own accident and travel insurance.

If this sounds interesting please write me an email, explaining why you want to come to Norway, why you selected me, which opportunity you are interested in, how this fits in with your travels, what you feel I can offer you, and what you feel you can offer me. I look forward to hearing from you, by email - and after that hopefully meeting you!
