    *️️*️️ Helpers needed for August and September *️️*️️

    While we still are open to volunteers coming here in July, we need more helpers for the months of August and September. We particularly need volunteers for the kitchen, cleaning and also for the garden so it would be great if you have any experience or special skills in these areas. In exchange you'll get to meet lots of interesting people, eat fantastic organic food and experience living in a beautiful forest!

    Our Holistic folk high school is located in the middle of the most beautiful forest and wild nature, only 17 km away from Scandinavia's oldest (and possibly most beautiful) town: Ribe. Spring, Summer and Autumn we hold courses in organic vegetable growing, personal and spiritual development, art, theatre, interpretation of dreams, holistic living, etc. This summer we are opening a small cafe (only open in the weekends) for people in the area who would like to come for a cup of coffee, read a book, meet new people and/or relax. We are looking for volunteers to help with the practical support of all of the above.

    Tasks at our place include helping in the organic vegetable garden, cooking meals and baking for the volunteers and course participants in the big kitchen, helping in the cafe and maintenance jobs such as cleaning the (bath)rooms/corridors, washing up, laundry etc. If you are very handy we also have tasks like painting (windows/furniture etc), cutting hedges, making furniture for our new cafe etc. Just let us know what kind of task you would love to do!

    Shared accommodation with 2-4 persons a room (male and female not mixed) and a common lounge area.
    The creative area, gym hall and music room can be used when not in use by course participants.

    Meals are mostly vegetarian with occasionally meat and fish.
    Trial period of one week and preferred stay of minimum one month.

    What else ...

    As it takes time to get used to the workings of the centre, we prefer that volunteers stay at least one month. This has advantages for both sides: for us, it is takes a lot of effort to explain how everything works and things flow more seamlessly when we know each other better. For the volunteers the advantages are that you become more free and are able to take more responsibility, plus -since we are a spiritual development centre- you will grow and develop more the longer you stay.

    Directions:
    Take the train to Ribe or Vojens
    From there take bus n°135 in the direction of Ribe, and get off at Stensbækvej/Endrupskov
    We can pick you up at bus stop or train station if agreed in advance.
