    In sept/october we need a person that knows about food preservation. We can offer a small salary.

    For Spring/summer 2018 we are looking for the following skills for many projects:
    Leadership skills.
    Teaching skills.
    Self motivated, take initiative, responsibility.
    Stress tolerant.

    - Building/carpentry
    - Freediving (teaching).
    - Yoga (teaching).
    - Cooking/looking after a kitchen for big groups.
    - Do you know what LARP is?
    - Can you film and edit?
    - Repair engines
    - Skilled garedener
    We are able to pay: accommodation, food, pocket money

    If you lack skills the work will be dirty, tiresome, boring, monotonous working on farm.
    Don´t come here with any romantic ideas - better come with low expectations.
    Look for a vacation elsewhere.

    We try to welcome visitors with a dedicated interest in permaculture, transition, self sustainability, and people that have experience and skills in these areas. Or people that are very strong and like to sweat.

    If you contact us we will ask you one straightforward question:
    What are your skills?
    Any skill in what ever area.
    Who are you? Where will you be in five years time?
    We like working with people that see themselves actually doing the same things as us in the future.

    Still reading? Good, most have probably stopped reading long ago and started looking for another farm.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This is the country side - not a city. This is rural. Close to nature. Sea and forest close by.
    Only people that enjoy nature and rural simple lifestyle.
    If you desire clean clothing and a shower every day - this is not your place.
    We work all the time, all day, every day - and enjoy it.
    Sometimes very creative fun stuff.
    This is an alternative small scale ecological farm project with many funky eco buildings going on.
    Easy access from Gothenburg.
    No smokers welcome.
    No TV
    No mobile phone in your pocket. We don´t want to see people staring into their mobiles.
    We seldom eat meat.
    We are "environmentally motivated", that means we avoid certain food and luxuries.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You could learn to work harder and take responsibility.
    If you are willing to do that - then tell us what you want to learn - and we may be able to teach you that.
    We have resources to share.
    After work we celebrate and play.
    Work means effective work that actually achieves something without breaking something or loosing tools.
    The farm is a wonderful place - everybody says.
    The only problem is the attitude of the work leader (me), I am impatient and impulsive and demanding.

    Oh, and we sell land or let it long term.

    This is a farm. We work all the time. Because we like it.
