We are originally a family of 6, I, Carina, my four daughters and my husband, Pär. Since last summer all girls, but Nanna, 18, have, more or less, left home for further studies. My beloved Pär died a year ago after a long time with sickness.

We started to welcome HelpXers to our Uddevalla home five years ago and since then we have met so many interesting, wonderful, helpful, caring and skilled people - men and women, boys and girls, who in different ways have helped us with various practical matters, but also contributed to increase our understanding of the world and letting us become their friends - in many cases, I believe, for life!

I have promised Pär to keep and care for his old home in Grundsund and it is my hope to be able to. We have, therefore, two properties to welcome you to!

We offer accomodation ( your own room ) in one of our two homes, food and friendship in exchange for some practical help. Both indoor and outdoor help is needed and you should be prepared t... more inside

We are a British family living in Southern Sweden.
Helen and Martin met through Scouting and the open-hearted, generous, communal way of life close to nature is a fairly good starting point for our ethos. Good humoured practicality, tolerance and flexibility in as low demand a lifestyle as possible. Both of our boys have neuro-psychiactic differences/challenges and this family has weathered more than a few storms in the last decade.

We have a property with much potential for hosting van-lifers, travellers, campers and so on. We are interested in education and personal development, managing adversity whilst enjoying life and supporting others, and more specifically outdoor activities, handcrafts and we are Viking re-enactors.

We used to host Couchsurfers occasionally and we had a few contacts return to work on the property, informally, to improve our ability to host guests. More recently we have realised that there are travellers out there who enjoy helping a host, building,... more inside

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE COMPLETE FOR ALMOST THE WHOLE SEASON, ECXEPT FOR SEPTEMBER.



We are a family of four and have small farm at the coast of the Baltic sea close to Oskarshamn. The farmhouse is more than a hundred years old and is located just a few meters away from a lake, which we can use exclusively for fishing, swimming and anything else.

A good work-life-balance is very important for us, and this is also what we have in mind for our helpers. It's not only working here, we also want to show our helpers the laid back Swedish lifestyle here at the Eastern coast. Both sides should feel that they did benefit from your stay at our place.

Hein: I was born in the north of Germany, and my profession as a carpenter has a very important role in the realization of our dream life. I’ve always felt at home out in nature, fishing, sailing or mushroom picking,. I like to work in the garden and cultivate home-grown fruits and vegetables.

Astrid: I love living in the nature... more inside

We are a family of four, (mum, dad, 9 year old daughter and 7 year old son), living on a hobby farm in the woods in the south of Sweden. We speak Swedish and English. We would like to develop the farm but struggle with finding the time. There are a lot of projects running or possible to start up, depending of your skills and interest. We love animals and for the moment we have sheep, hens, rabbits and dogs, but are thinking about getting ducks and turkeys. We also have bees and produce honey. In a big pond we have crayfish and farmed fish. We are self-sufficient in meat and wish that we could be better on producing vegetables.

Possible work is painting outdoors, building hen house, dog house, rabbit house, a roof over a parking space, a storage room and a room for slaugher. Gardening, planting, make a growing area for vegetables, help with houshold, and so on. It is possible to learn how to work in the woods, go hunting, fishing and pick berries and mushrooms. We breed shetland s... more inside

About us:
We are one of the larger experienced organic vegetable farms in Sweden still active and have accepted volonteers since 1991.

We are a certified organic vegetable farm that produces food for local consumption. We grow an abundance of vegetables and potatoes on 4 to 5 of our 50ha and on the rest, grains of many heirloom varieties of wheat and rye for our small home bakery.

Our vegetables are mainly sold through subscription baskets commonly called CSA (community supported agriculture) locally.We were the first in Sweden with CSA and have two "daughter" farms with whom we shared the way to start.

For more pictures see "bilder" on our website. See videos where we pack the CSA baskets there and also on cooking and nature walk in English.

We are in the process of reestablishing a permaculture designed forestgarden.

Time scheme:
We usually accept helpers for vegetable farming from Mid-February through mid-December.We are now planning the time after 21st of Au... more inside

Today 8/6 all potatoes will be in the soil. During the rest of June helpers are welcome to us.

We do not need any help in July. After 10 of august also open to come here. Mostly we need help with planting, weeding and painting and other small things on a small farm like ours.

Organic Status: since 1975 ecological (organicbiological).

Very welcome to us. This is a part of the North. In summer no darkness no nights just a very friendly mild sun shining all the time. Just enjoy what nature can give. In coldest winter not so much sun only ghostlight from millions of stars and the moon and northern lights the aurora which moves over the sky in curtains of colors.

When we have helpers here we see it as an advantage to have two volunteers during the same period. We usually can not accommodate more than two helpers at the same time. But sometimes there are three and sometimes only one.

We are trying to live and have our farming as it is sustainable and rugged. It is ... more inside

!!!Thank you for your interest, but unfortunately we can't host any more helpers for this summer!!!

Hi there!
We are a friendly-loving-open-minded-multicultural-easy-going-outdoor-fun-making-absolutely-awesome-family of 5 :). The ones with two legs are Viola, Samir and Maris (3 years) and the four legged ones are Alice and Jokki, our two siberian huskies. In 2013 we set out on a long journey visiting and living in different countries. Since 2016 we live in the far north, close to the small town of Kiruna in Swedish Lapland.
Our home is a small wood cabin located on a beautiful piece of land surrounded by mountains, forests and the Kalix river. It lies between Kiruna (20 min. by car) and Nikkaluokta (40 min.). Nikkaluokta is also one of the entrance points for the famous Kungsleden hiking trail and to Kebnekaise, the highest mountain in Sweden.
This summer we want to renovate our guest cabin and the sauna and need some help with that. We also would like to have someone playin... more inside

We are Peter (Swedish), Solveig (German) and our kids Magali (8 years) and Dimitri (3 years). It is our privilege to live in a nice Swedish woodhouse built together with an old typical Swedish hut. A beautiful forest is protecting our house from North, to the West there is the view on a long-stretched lake. There are cats and chicken, too. We are trying to do as many things as possible ourselves, getting as independent as possible from the system. We are vegetarians and avoid dairy products as much as possible. There is WiFi and we are non-smokers.
We are able to speak to you in Swedish, German, English and a little bit French.
There is private space in the old part of the house with sleeping opportunities both on the ground floor and under the roof. Bathroom and toilet (compost) have to be shared with the host family.
We have comfortably place for 1 volunteer, preferably non-smoker.
As a volunteer you help us most by taking over normal household chores as first priority, that... more inside
