    Description

    We welcome volunteers to join a weekend with painting, building and gardening in the middle of August! My name isPäivi and I’m your host during the weekend. I live at the farm with my three children, two cats and ten sheep. We have a little bed&breakfast here too but this weekend the farm is only for workaday volunteers!
    Farneby is located in Nyköping just an hour and a half from Stockholm. The closest international airport, Stockholm Skavsta, is only twenty minutes away.
    We have a beautiful lake 100 meters from the house so there’s good changes for swimming, sauna and fishing!
    Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I have place and separate rooms for six volunteers.
    Hope to meet you in August!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The village is just like the books of Astrid Lindgren! You’ll get the chance to try Swedish countryside living as it’s best. The area has lots of history, you can for example walk in the Viking footprints and see their ancient stones (runstenar) or graves. It’s of course also possible to learn some Swedish (or Finnish)!

    The projects are some painting outdoors, repairing a wall outside, repairing old wooden windows, gardening and taking down some small trees.
