We are Marja (finnish sign language interpreter, homemom, from Finland) and Mick (carpenter, from Ireland) and we have two small kids Leo (born 2014) and Luna (born 2016). We live in the countryside in North Karelia 20 km from Joensuu center.

Our project is to build a small straw bale round house to be our home. We have decided to settle down in Finland and after a few years of thinking we decided to build our own home instead of buying an old house. After that decision was made we bought 5 hectares of land in December 2016. We bought it very close (500m) from where we live now and also close to an organic farm Pikkunuppu where Marja has grown up.

We have now cleared the road to the house, gotten building permission and had the trees cut to boards for the house. After we got the building permission we cleared the building plot from trees and we did a natural stone foundation. The foundation of the house is ready as is the foundation for the chimney. In year 2018 we completed... more inside

We run an internship program for people interested in working with huskies in a semi-professional capacity. In other words, we don`t just take people as volunteers and expect them to poop. Rather, we have a systematic training system in place which is an extension of the system in place for paying clients who want to participate in the husky lifestyle for short periods of time.

Interns learn about and participate in the daily and weekly tasks that need to be completed on the farm. The first week is a bit of a baptism of fire guided by a daily mentor in which there is complete immersion into every aspect of life here.

The degree to which people can participate in the range of roles available on the farm depends on the length of their stay, their expertise coming in, and the level of interest in the various roles.

Duties change with the seasons from one-on-one dog training and construction / maintenance work in the summer, to dog-conditioning and safari preparation work in... more inside

Independent Textile Artist and Craft Maker/Luthier couple need help running projects and maintaining a large wooden riverside property in North Karelia, Finland.

Children Welcome!

We are very easy and flexible so no worries... :D

We are further north than Anchorage, Alaska, and further east than Istanbul, Turkey. Clean waters, pure air and endless forests and waterways to explore. On the Finnish border with Russia. White nights in the summer and northern lights in the winter. It is extremely quiet up here in a fairly isolated village.

Looking for a helper later this year.

-----------Hi! I'm Liisa (26) and I live with Markus (27) in Kalajoki, Finland. We would offer accommodation in our home for a helper later this year. We are outgoing persons, we both work fulltime and we have a big yard where we would need help.I also have a greenhouse where I might need a hand. Helper would have to do some housework inside and outside, but also have a lot of freetime to explore places in our City and there is easy access also to Lapland and Helsinki by train, since we live on The coast of Finland.

CALL FOR HELPERS

Our place is located between Turku and Helsinki in the village of Karjalohja on a beautiful hill with a view over fields with crops and horses. Only with a 7 minutes walk you reach the shore of the clean protected Enäjärvi Lake, where we do fishing, rowing, sailing, swimming, picnic, or take tours to the islands. Big forests with berries and mushrooms also surround us. You reach to the Turku-Helsinki express bus stop in 15 minutes with our biogas car. To reach the nearest small village with shop, library, spa, etc. takes 12 minutes by car and 35 minutes on bicycle.

Now this place serves our circle of partners and friends and we hope that one day it can also serve a larger circle. Eventually, it can also become an artist residence and an experimental ground for artistic, ecologic and holistic lifestyle development.

We are developing an old farm into an ecological self-sustainable unit. We are growing biodynamic food and exploring experiments i... more inside

Good day to you all.

My name is Dennis.
I live with my cat in a village that's sometimes nicknamed Uutonen.
The village is a part of Tohmajärvi town that borders to Russia.

Uutonen has had a little bit of a bad reputation in the past, maybe still has.
The village has 20 or so factory worker houses. Aka barnhouses that are rotting away. I have two of theese houses, live in one.
The house is off-grid, dry toilet and so on.

At the moment Im working on a energy sufficient little house.
In the outskirts of the nearest "bigger" city Joensuu, in a suburb called Kulho.
We started a sustainability project, it is in its grassroot stage. The project is called nomadtown, rented land where we are alloud to raise temporary little houses, yurts, tipis or new kinds of structures.
Ideas are welcome.

Helpers are hosted both in Uutonen and Joensuu, depending on what is going on.
When in nomadtown housing is tent with tiny stowe. Its cold I know but we are lucky to have a sauna the... more inside
