Fellow Workawayers, it's with a warm heart I welcome you to my little place on earth. This year I have many plans and I'd love it if you wanted to join me! There are fences to be looked over (and repaired haha), a barn to be painted, plants to water and chickens to feed. There is also a sea to plunge, a forest to wander and rocks to climb. There's mackerel to put on the barbeque and tomatoes to put in the salad.
Orust island is a beautiful vibrant place with a stunning coast and a lush inland - I encourage you to explore it when you are here. I have bikes you can use and an old Saab that needs weekly exercise. In spring and early summer I go forage for wild foods like nettles, ramsons, sand leeks and garlic mustards - and later blueberries, lingonberries, chanterelles and other mushrooms.
In your free time you can also go hiking, horse riding, rock climbing, cycling, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling and fishing.
I don't like to count the hours I work myself and I'm not going to count yours either. I belive in mutual exchange and communication.
If you have any questions - just ask!
Help with Eco project
I can share the things I've learnt about growing food and having animals, it's an ongoing learning process! I can also share my view on health and nutrition, wild plants and old techniques of cooking.

You will have your own caravan, small and cozy. Shower is in my house. I provide lunch and dinner, which I make from local and organic ingredients. I'm open to cater for different diets.
