This year we are ideally taking volunteers who can stay a minimum of 4-6 weeks for spring/summer/ fall. Please contact us if you are interested in longer stays in Sweden.
We take a number of all around friendly and hard working volunteers to which you may apply, no previous experience necessary, only a willingness to work and a good attitude. We do a lot of catering and food prep in the cafe, so that is a large portion of the work, also as we run a bnb we have room cleaning as well. This years project is to continue with window renovation and we will teach you all you need to know. There will be outdoor work in the garden and surroundings as well. Cooking of meals, house clean up and possible help in the café are also possible jobs. Work is hands on and sometimes independent. Please come with a good attitude and great work ethic!
We ask for five 6-hour days in exchange for two days off, plus additional help with meal prep and clean up. We work very hard, but have a good time.
We live in a 127 year old school house in a beautiful, natural setting with hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, berry and mushroom gathering just outside our door. We are renovating this house to make it into an art, craft and culture center. We are 4 in the family with husband, wife and two daughters aged 9 and 5.

We are looking for easy-going individuals, couples or families that have a great work ethic and attitude. We can train interested parties in the skills we need and in the winter we do not take volunteers, only from may through the summer and part of September. We would love to have handy folks who know their way around a spatula, blender, hammar, saw, ruler and spackle, but it is not necessary. There is always a lot to do here and the best thing our volunteers have is a willingness to do new things!
PLEASE READ: This year we have received a lot of volunteer requests. Please, if you write to us and we let you know we have space, then be considerate and let us know if you are going to cancel. Then we will give your place to some other traveler. Know your Workaway etiquette!
English, Swedish, French, some German and Spanish
Our volunteers can stay in our family room, which is a large room with mini kitchen, bunkbeds, and place to hang out). Room dividers offer a little privacy, but this is a shared accomodation with other volunteers. Shared bathroom and shower in the hall. All meals provided with work exchange. We do not take vegan volunteers however, but vegetarians are welcome to apply. Heating in our large home is with wood so it is not always as warm as a modern home, but it is spacious, clean with large windows throughout.
Great opportunity to live in nature among the flora and fauna. Beavers, foxes, owls, moose are our neighbors.
Sometimes it takes a while to get a response back from me, though eventually one always comes, thanks in advance for your understanding. -Amy
