Hi! I'm Maj, a 39 year old environmental artist who 1 year ago bought an amazing farm house, summerhouse and 2 hectares of land on the beach. The farm house is in the raw nature of Sjællands Odde in the heart of Denmark with it's own forrest and only 1.5 hours drive from Copenhagen or Aarhus (ferry).
I'm starting up a creative hub for art and sustainability, where guests can go on inspirational work and holiday retreats. I would love to welcome volunteers of all ages and with all kinds of skills who would like to be pioneers, and help building up this brand new project.
All skills are needed here: Practical help/building/Outdoor/Computer/Cleaning/Housekeeping.
The working tasks are very flexible and can be adjusted to your interests and skills.
Please note: This project is still at it's initial stage and it’s very ‘uncivilized’ as we live a bit in a construction site. Creative activities, workshops etc. generally don't happen much the moment. At the moment we build, renovate, paint walls, remove bushes, cook, clean and basically carry out a lot of labour work.
When contacting me, please write:
1) Why this project particularly interests you
2) How you think you could contribute and with which concrete tasks
3) Your interests, skills, age, preferences, values etc. - stuff that help me get an impression of who you are.
The work is 5 hours a day 5 days a week. You can do longer days and take more days off to go to Aarhus or Copenhagen or elsewhere.
Vegetarian + fish
Or whatever non meet food you choose to cook if you are the cook :)
We eat together, and sometimes with guests, so if you are the cook, please be prepared to sometimes cook for 5-10 persons.
The food is basic, as the budget is limited.
You’ll stay stay all together in a shared dorm in the farm house - the farm house is being renovated during 2019.

DURATION OF STAY
The duration of your stay can be from app. 1-3 weeks.
The place is great for long walks, running, cycling, reading and writing.
Please, be sure you bring books, own projects or other to entertain yourself after sunset, as there is not much to do here after dark.
The days are very varied. Many people come and go: Friends, volunteers, carpenters, and paying guests. Some days however are quiet and peaceful where we choose to be ourselves, watch TV, read or do other things.
There is internet access free to use moderately. Telephone calls and internet surfing should happen separately from work time and social time.
DRUGS & ALCOHOL
We sometimes serve alcohol. Use of drugs (whead also) is not allowed on the area.
