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 stoneage villages, springwaterlakes, rivers, wild animals, clean air and interesting people. Perfect!

I'm a wood artesan and I live in a old wooden house that previously housed 6 families. There is no running water or electricity in the house. Outdoor drytoilet, sauna. The house is slowly restored a bit here and there. The garden is slowly getting some fruit trees, and other edible perennial plants.
There is two domegreenhouses in the garden and a third one is beeing built.

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 treebarkbread, picking berries, mushrooms, picking wild edible plants, making natural balms, and so much more. I think the world has gone more or less c... more inside

Small loosely knit community in Southern Finland welcomes helpful travelers for short visits.

For summer 2018 our projects include more gardening & forest work, rebuilding current structures and (if lucky) creating art from junk & testing cob and/or clay as building materials, other art projects.
NB! Next helper bookings available are for late August and September to help us with harvest season.

We are (at the moment) 5 adults, 3 kids (schoolage) and pack of dogs & cats. Words and ideas like permaculture gardening, recycling, Arts & crafts, sharing economy, sustainability, anti-discrimination, critical thinking etc perhaps tell you a bit of what we are.
We welcome likeminded critical thinkers from from all corners of the world (LGBTIQ-identifying, polyamorists, non-neurotypical, poc, all warmly welcome). We wish our helpers to be openminded, tolerant, co-operative, active and able to do stuff independently. We also wish our helppers to be okay to live in rather modest hou... more inside

Hey you! I am a single mother of a lovely son Milo, born in Jan 2018. We live in a 3 room flat in Mellunmäki, near the metro station, Itis shopping center and lovely forests. I am a nurse, now on maternity leave.

We are looking for someone to look after Milo every now n then (few hours tops at a time), do some light house work and join us on our adventures (like going to the nearest super market, which is a lot of fun for a 4 mnth old :D). We are outgoing and are looking for someone, who would like to see how life in Finland is and teach us a bit about your culture too.

Note:
From late July until mid Aug we will spend at our summer cottage in North Carelia. Not in Helsinki. Free to join us there too. There is no tv there, but Internet works fine. And a lovely lake, a fishing boat and mosquitoes. And ofc the `nightless night`. And as many blueberries as you like to pick. And mushrooms if you can find them ;)

We are looking for an outgoing girl. Preferably non... more inside
