A couple in their fifties asking to join their down to earth and artistic life in the old customs house (built 1939-40) at the border of Finland and Sweden.

The lady of the house is a performing artist and arts facilitator, the man is specialist in handicraft and responsible for the renovations in the house.

At spare time in the village, we visit some good friends, do cross-country skiing in winter, work in garden at summer, and pick berries and mushrooms in autumn. If volunteers stay with us for longer than a few weeks, we like to take them around to see the surroundings of Muodoslompolo.

We have a wide range of jobs which can be arranged to suit the volunteer: building with wood, painting, cooking, sorting firewood, light building work, electrical work... the list is endless!

You will have your own room in the house with a bed and bed sheets provided. We expect you to work 5 hours / day. You can arrange your own schedule.

This is a diversified organic farm in the border between fields and forest. Theoretical and practical education for interested persons. Low to high technology. We together with workers, volunteers and trainees try to develop the farm to become sustainable, hopefully a good producer of farm-products, food, fibre and energy and in the future climate restoring. We welcome everyone, for shorter or longer time, year around, who is interested in those issues. We also look for a worker / trainee who for a bit longer time can participate in keeping up and develop the farm to be sustainable.
In May 2013 we took another step in to permaculture. We planted a forest garden, a small test area belonging to a research project.
In 2015 we planted an alley cropping of 1ha in Agroforestry research (SOLMACC). We have and are expanding an exhibition plot area for food producing perennials.
Welcome to contact us also on telephone

My goal is to be semi self sufficient, so far only potatoes.

We are a couple who have a small farm that we wish to make so ecological and self-sustainable as possible. We are bouth "city-people" who have moved out to the countryside, meaning we are more idealists than farmers and we are happy for some help with a lot of things; in the garden as well as renovation-work with the house.

Some about the area: here are many nice lakes and a lot of forrest and wildlife. We live outside a tiny village with its own village-sauna and the village itself is also in moving towards self-sustainability and having a good life together. Here is also a very much cultural activity with a huge theatre close by.

We think it would be very nice to have some nice, easygoing people wisiting and living with us in return for some help. We are looking for people who have skills in the areas of gardening, farming, crop fruit trees, house painting (outside) and general carpentry. Only summer months may-august (maybe april/september).

Hello!
We are a family with two small kids living in a house in the beautiful county Dalarna in Sweden. We bought our house 2,5 years ago very cheaply and have been renovating since then. We live in a small village in the woods, 10 min walk to a big lake and lots of beautiful woods around. Our closest naighbour is a small meditation center with retreats running in the summer.
Right now we really need help with renovating windows on the top floor. Anyone who like to come and help will live upstairs with own entrence and some basic facilities up there (no runnig water), but a stove for heat and a small cooker. We ask for 4 hours work a day in return for accomodation and one meal a day.
Much love!
Kim and Lisa

Hi!

Now it's time, for the second project! My name is Joseph. When I first started inviting helpers to stay almost three years ago I had just started restoring an old farm on the Swedish south coast all by myself. Being just over 20 years old when I started you can imagine what a crazy journey it has been.

With the help of many wonderful volunteers the house got finished, but I was not. So i sold it to a happy family and bought an old school in January from 1881 in need of complete restoration. The house is currently (september) not ready to live in so I'm therefore living with my parents atm. But the project is progressing steadily and I think I will be able to move in in Nov/Dec. That's going to be so great, not only because I will have my own place again but also because I can host volunteers again!

Quick about me:
I'm 26 years old. Love carpentry, have three chickens (bibedi, babedi and bo). Have a girlfriend currently in Australia for a few months. I'm curious about... more inside
