Area: Nord-Trøndelag, middle of NorwayWe are a couple in the beginning of the sixties. Our alternative lifestyle, we have had for 20 to 30 years. We have a great interest in clean food and nutrition and alternative therapies. We are living at a small farm. The farm is 75 acres. No animals. Most of it is forest area, but we have a range of 10 acres where we now are creating an outdoor arena for therapy and teaching, and for the use of natural and cultural based experiences in tourism. The residential house on the farm, is now totaly renovated and we use this for treatment, courses, meetings and accommodation. At the farm there are also two smaller houses, and a boathouse by the waterfront. We place great emphasis on colours and their significance for us humans, and therefore we are in the process of establishing our place (Colour-mound). We will also create an area for vegetables, one with herbs and a place with sow-benches for use in garden therapy (horticultural therapy). Harvesting and drying herbs is also relevant tasks. We are also running a garden, Colour garden, a few miles away from where we live. Here we also need help to keep it in working order. We are working a lot, but we would not ask people to do jobs we would not do ourselves.
