Hallo unknown friend,
I live in a small cottage in the forest, at the end of the road, with some animals, a cat, 2 goats and chickens. There are outhouses, a garage, a green house and a guest cottage for 2 persons on the premises. Also two separate rooms with beds in the main building. It is also possible to sleep i my cosy, vintage mobile home with a double bed (180 cm wide).

It's a tranquil atmosphere, no traffic, with nearby lakes to swim in and a friendly country side to explore. It's 15 km to town (Uppsala being a bustling university town), buses run every half hour from the main road and I can give a lift as I need to go to town several times every week in my car.

As I am getting older (74), I am not so strong and fit any longer and live alone - it would be great to have some help. I have received many guests throughout the years through an international peace and travel organisation called Servas (Servas.org). Many of them have lent a helping hand, for which I have be... more inside

No helpers needed 2020. - - - - -
There are five separate households at Hallbjens. Two of us share the vege garden which is around 0.2 hectares, a smaller and a bigger patch. Organic since 1973. This was once a biodynamic farm that sold vegetables to shops. Now the owner is retired and the vege garden is grown for household use (simply organic, not permaculture or bidynamic). We grow an annual consumption of veges.
Quiet place, surrounded by forest, off the main roads. One of the houses was once a trailer, now with 2 rooms built onto it, one of the hosts live. The next house, once a chicken house, is surrounded by built on rooms and connected to the barn by a green house, there's an apartment in the barn as well where the other host lives.
There are two other houses on the property as well.
We can host one helper for a couple of weeks at a time (sometimes longer) for gardening work, weeding, planting, mulching and harvesting.
There's sometimes other work projects too.

Hi,
we are Maya and Felix, 26 and 33 years old from Sweden and Germany.

We are starting up a permaculture system from scratch on our off-grid property which sits in the heart of Småland, southern Sweden, deep in the forest.

After having prepared the gardens to start growing our own vegetables next summer there are a lot more projects lined up to start with in the beginning of April including seeding the plants, fencing, cutting trees, build garden terraces, dig a pond, introduce sheep and chickens and prepare pastures and our stable for a few fjord-horses that might move in in the near future.

Maya is working with mainly pulling horses and sometimes riding horses in the ways of natural horsemanship. For interested people there can be a lot to learn regarding comunication and work with horses. She also has a passion for processing food in all kinds of ways like preservation, baking and cooking.
Felix is interested in all kinds of animals, especially old and hardy breed... more inside

We are a family with four children 10-14 years old, living on a small farm 15 km from Örnsköldsvik in the middlenorth of Sweden. We run this little farm with a few sheep, some organic growing of vegetables and potatoes and some forestry. Both of us work outside home as well but just parttime so that we can be able to spend time on the farm and with the children. There is always a lot of work to do and here you can be expected to help out with various things like fencing for the sheep, work in the garden or in the forest with wood, carpeting, maybe some cooking etc. No particular experience is required but you`d better of course like animals, children and practical (and sometimes hard) work! We live just by a lake so in summer there are lovely possibilities to swim, kayaking, fishing etc. It`s not far from the sea and the beautiful and stunning area "Höga kusten" - "High coast". You stay in your own, small cottage about 50 mtrs from our house. Driving license is prefered but not req... more inside

Jan 2020 update. Back online apologies for no contact.
Project for April-May 2020: Re-roofing the barn and Gardening

Hello

I have been renovating a 170yr old cottage in the woods in Varmland for 10 years with my now 11 year old boy. I have converted the attic into a lovely bright and spacious 50m2 room that would be plenty of space for 3-4 people. The surrounding forest is full of gorgeous wandering trails a couple of which lead to a beautiful lake with a long beach and crystal clear water perfect for swimming.
I would appreciate the help of about 3-4 people. I will provide 3 organic vegetarian meals per day, bed, and meditation guidance if wished in exchange for 5-6 hours per day. A carpenter or anyone with a knowledge of roofing is ideal but not essential.

Let the fun begin!
Glenna

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 t... more inside

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

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

Hello. Maybe we have possibility ta have helpers from beginning of April. But more we need help later when snow is gone.

Mostly we need help with planting, weeding and painting, fencing and some building projects and other small things on a small farm like ours. And also cut down bushes and some small trees in the forest.

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.

Weather now has become strange. Very little snow and warm weather for winter-temperature.


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... more inside
