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.
-Home duties, cooking... more inside

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. We hope you are not afraid of saw, hammer and other tools. Basic skills in building are appreciated, but if you learn fast and are motivated, it is surely ... more inside

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.

Building a permaculture farm.

Hey!
Here in the most beautiful Central Finland, we have a nice piece of land and a farm where my Grandparents used to live years ago. While traveling and also volunteering abroad for winters, the project has only been under a slow development but now it's the time to really get into it!

All the millions of ideas what's going to happen in here in the future are endless. At first, let's just say that it's going to regenerate and improve life of anyone who are staying, visiting, hearing, seeing or feeling the area. From the smallest bacteria to humans and towards the other creatures they interact, oh what a chain is it!

So let's start from the beginning. First step is to have a shelter to as many as possible, and it's going quite nicely, there are many buildings on an area we can use. Biggest thing is already done, since we did build a nice outdoor toilet couple years ago. At the moment, the main house is the best for accommodation but for more ... more inside
