    Looking volunteer help ASAP for the summer time until the end of July 2017!

    If you like peace and the tranquility of the countryside, you are able to experince it with me (middleaged woman), my foster son 17 (German) and some animals. I understand German language (My foster son's native language), but me myself prefer to communicate in English (Or Finnish ;)! ) At home we speak mostly "FinGelisch ;)!

    We are living at the small house at the little farm. We have five donkeys, horse and three dogs at the moment. We would like to have some chickens as well, and we would be happy to have a volunteer, who has some basic construction skills. We will need to be built the "house" for chickens :)!

    If you are interested, please take contact so I will tell more by mail!

    You can experience Finnish clean and pure nature...silence, fresh air. The place, where the birds still are singing :)!
    Take a shooting swim after sauna in a clean water. Fishing at the fish-rich, clean lake.
    Besides these, we here by ourselves already are two different nationalities and from a bit different cultures (Finnish, German). We have met many different nationalities through the years -easy to see we humans are similar everywhere, -only cultures and manners are different. Don't let it be distressing and rigorous -take this an experience.
