  • Description

    Description

    We're a family of 5, living on a small organic farm in Norway. We have a lot of projects going on here (restoring the house, building up an organic garden, tending to our chickens, rabbits, and cats, etc.), and would love some help this summer - or any time, really! We offer a free place to stay and 3 meals a day if you're willing to help out with the daily workload and chores around here, in addition to the various projects that come up.
    Our main projects this summer will be building an apartment as an addition to the house and planning the garden plus seeding, planting and maintaining the garden.

    Accommodation

    We can offer a bedroom in the house, as well as tents or sleeping arrangements in the barn, depending on how many visitors we get. We will provide bedding, tents, and anything else needed for your accommodations.
    We will provide three free meals every day - however, we may occasionally ask you to help out with cooking. We will provide the necessary groceries, unless there's something specific you wish to buy for yourself.
    You will also have access to fridge/freezer 24/7, in case you wish to store your own food or cook for yourself outside of the communal meals.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live only a short distance from Oslo, the capital of Norway. There, you can find a lot of bars, restaurants, shopping, and various tourist attractions. There aren't a lot of buses here, but we're willing to help with driving, or let you borrow bicycles. If you prove yourself trustworthy and a decent driver, there's also a possibility that we may let you borrow a car.
    There will also be many opportunities to go for trips in the beautiful area we live in :)
