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

We have 2 dogs, 4 cats, 2 horses, 1 pony, few chickens, ducks, 1 bunny and a few roosters.

We are surrounded with beautiful nature, with different wild animals, like deer. There's also great paths for hiking or walks and run. You can borrow our old fashioned bikes for nice tours.
Our area is perfect for relaxing and enjoing silence.

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

Hello!

We are living here on a beautiful old farm estate in south/central Finland on the shores of Näsijärvi, about 3 hours from Helsinki and 1 hour from Tampere by car. The farm nowadays is purely arable, so no livestock related work is done here.

The daily farm work for us actually consists mostly of chores and maintenance work on the buildings and gardens, as most of the field work is contracted. Grass cutting, weed whacking, painting buildings, pruning trees, doing small renovations indoors and such are the normal jobs in the summer months. We also run a small fish hatchery and a small-scale sawmill.

I, Laura, currently live in Tampere with my husband Keith (from Scotland) and our dog Dexter, but we visit the farm every weekend. My parents and grandparents live on the farm permanently. However, as the farm yard is quite large with a lot of maintenance work needing done, we are struggling to keep up with everything by ourselves.

We are looking for nice, helpful, trust... more inside

Hello!

I live in Uusi-värtsilä, a village in Tohmajärvi, North-Karelia, close to the Russian border. Here you find forests, bogs, remains of stone-age villages, spring water lakes, rivers, wild animals, clean air and interesting people. Perfect!

I'm a masseur/yoga teacher/woodartisan. I live in a house that previously housed several families that housed workers from the the village foundry. The foundry was run down in the 60:s and the village got quiet. Now the village is a quiet place with many empty houses around.
I'm now restoring the house since it had been empty for years and was in really bad condition, same with the garden. We built two dome greenhouses in the garden, this year we are building a third during the summer. This Summer there is a nearby field that we are using for plantig a variety of edibles.

I have a little workshop where I make bentwood furniture and wooden handicrafts. I invite helpers to share the costless joy of gardening, planting, handicrafts, ... more inside

An old house by seaside village 14 kilometers from pittoresque small town Porvoo and 63 km from capital Helsinki needs gardnering, wood works, painting, kitchen work, cleaning and other domestic help. A small Maltesian dog likes to get walking company in the nearby forest, where you can pick up berries, mushrooms etc. Sauna baths, swimming in the see, rowing a boat and fishing is possible here.
