I have organic (straw)berry farm in north east Finland, its 20km from city called Kuopio. It`s situated in a beautiful place next to lake and farm has history from year 1657. I grow mainly strawberries and raspberries and blueberries. I can take around 8 volunteers at the time between April and October. I speak English, Spanish, a little Swedish and im native Finnish.
My main thing is to grow organic (straw)berries. I use modern growing technologies as greenhouses/tunnels, table top and substrate growing systems. My purpose is to make organic growing also efficient. I am the only one in Finland using these technologies in organic (straw)berry farming so you would be also be doing something new and developing new methods for future. I also grow berries in a "normal" way in a open field.
Farm is next to lake and i also have fields otherside of the lake; by boat its just 200m and by bike or car 6km. There is boats and bikes for you to use. There is two cottages. One big one about 200m2 (build 1850) and one smaller (build 18th century). There is also sauna next to lake where we wash up.
Im 34 years old man and i have traveled and lived in different countries so i understand well different cultures. I have also done volunteering(wwoofing) in Canarias and in Brazil, so i know the principles of volunteering very well and i also know what makes a good host! :)
If you have any questions, just contact me and i will get back to you as soon as possible!
