Hi there!

We are a young Finnish family living in the countryside in the Eastern part of Finland close to Russian border. We are looking for handy helpers to help out with various kinds of tasks on our historical farm.

Our family includes mum, dad, two daugthers (born in 2010 and 2018) and two sons (born in 2012 and 2015). We live in the Eastern Finland in a small village. Our land is right next to a lake and our home is surrounded by fields and forests. The closest shops are seven kilometers away in the town centre of Tohmajärvi. The closest bigger city, Joensuu, is about an hour-drive away from us, while the Russian border can be reached in a good half an hour.

Our farm has a really long history, which can be seen in some buildings and some other parts of our land. Nowadays, we run here a business in tourism, forestry and agriculture. We have lakeside cabins that can be rented for spending a holiday and a smoke sauna area for arranging functions, such as birthday parties... more inside

Hi, looks like i found somebody for this spring. Can host again at my cottage from early summer. But i know my situation quite late, so very difficult for me to agree anything few months before. Thank you all who show any interest in my place!
Hello, I would like to invite you to my place for few weeks in the end of january, maybe whole of february, and maybe doing house sitting in march.

Work would be helping me moving my mother to new place, inside helsinki, some painting, helping me to help my father too, taking care of my bunnies, etc. House sitting in march would be staying in my place and taking care of my bunnies.

Living: private room in my place, or when they are empty, in apartment in espoo or helsinki.

Ask more info if you are interested.

For summer:
After being a helper myself I would like to host a helper at my summer cottage.

Hello!

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

By profession I'm a masseur / artisan. I live in a old house that previously housed several families. There is no running water or electricity in the house. Outdoor dry toilet, sauna. The house is slowly restored a bit here and there. The garden is slowly getting more fruit trees, and other edible perennial plants.
There is a few dome greenhouses in the garden and more is being built next summer.

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, yoga, making tinctures, cooking, baking tree bark bread, picking berries, mushrooms, picking wild edible plants, making natural balms, and so much more.
