If you like peace and the tranquility of the countryside, you are able to experience it with me (middle-aged woman), my foster son 18 (German, foster cared by me) and some animals. I understand German language pretty ok (My foster son's native language), but me myself prefer to communicate in English (Or Finnish ;)! ) At home we speak mostly "FinGelisch ;)!"

We are living in the small farm. We have three donkeys, horse, pony and four dogs and two cats.

For volunteer's help there is no any regular times like example from 8 am. to 13 pm etc, but just some duties during the days. So many different things to do...- I will need help with the animals, like feeding, brushing at times and clean the horse's and donkey's barns. Would be great if you have skills to make a light riding with our horse...he already is an old man, but loves to take light walks through the forests.
Right now will need help also collecting rocks and shrubs from the animal's enclosure.

After being a helper myself I would like to host a helper at my summer cottage.
Would like to have some help with garden, and with fire wood.
For a helper we could agree about 4 hours work 5 days a week. You could stay few days or few weeks.
Simple food. I don't eat meat, but you can.

My cottage is very primitive, no running water, outside toilet, solar panels for electricity. I do have a sauna. And wifi!
There is a small guest cottage where a helper could stay, IF I dont have paying quests. It has a fire place for heating. If I have quests, helper can sleep in my kitchen cottage, or in my cottage. All cottages are very small!
I have an apartment in Espoo (with electricity and running water!=) ), 20 km from the center of Helsinki. Helper can stay there partly.

Siuntio village, very small with a shop, farmacy etc., is 6 km away, but close to my cottage there is a spa hotel with swimming pool.
Cottage is by the lake and I have a canoe and a bicycle. I dont have a p... more inside
