We are a family with 3 kids nowadays (7 months, 5 and 8 years), several chickens and many friends coming and going. We live in the countryside (17 km to the closest small town) in Southern Finland, renovating our home, an old school, to be a winter-residence and a summerschool for artists and activists one day. We work and live on Do It Yourself-bases, as naturally as possible.

Aune is a performance artist, lecturer and a homeopath, Alm is a musician, poet, builder and a forestengineer. We are interested in natural therapies, dancing, drumming, silence, gardening, politics - among other things.

We are looking for helpers for the busy summer-season: mainly to join in the renovation/construction of the house, but also picking berries for the winter, chopping wood, doing garden-work, and to improvise with whatever comes up.

I am writer who is writing books and keeping airbnb at my home. I am looking for person to translate my books from English to his/her language. I also do performance art. My home is 6 km from center near forest and frisbee golf court.

You can start with translating this poem to your language

Wake Me Up From The Fear

I make a notation of my essence
Glee rich in minor
Melancholy is moaning
That it didn’t get even today
The sorrow waits
It’s own turn
The emotions are competing
Of their unravel
I deny them
From hurting you
And I make the keyboard
A bunching bag for my fingers

You also can tell me if you are interested to perform with me.

We have just started a multifunction business in our small community just about in the middle of Lappland. Our base is an old schools building where most of the activities are to take place. These include handcrafts, artistic creation, gardening, traditional agriculture like reindeerhearding, sustainable environmental development, social work and healthcare. As we also include natural economy in our practices we also do fishing, hunting and gathering, which are still predominant in the area. We are gladly involved in local community projects. For now one of the main projects is repairing and renovating the newly aqcuired building, so there is plenty of work.
One of our numerous functions is to invite people to come and stay with us and exchange skills and knowledge and inetarct in the local community. Another is to help further a local bioenergy project. We also have enough room to to offer guesthouse type accomodationto both paying and work exchange guests.
