    There are five separate households in this place that was once an active biodynamic farm that sold vegetables to whole food stores and a Rudolf Steiner school. Organic since 1973. The owner is retired now.
    Quiet place, surrounded by forest, off the main roads.

    My house started out as a trailer, now built into a summer house. I spend winters in Portugal, now that I've retired since a couple of years. I have a big vege garden. I used to store veges for the whole winter too, but now that I'm away for 4-5 during winter I've cut down a bit on that.
    This summer the house needs to be painted and I would actually like to insulate the store room, so someone with experience with in kind of work would be a great help! My own experience in building is very limited.

    I can host one (!) volunteer with some experience with gardening, painting and building for 1-2 weeks. You need to be able to work independently.
    I can offer accomodation in the guest corner in my living room divided by curtains only - or the until now uninsulated store room. (it can get cold at night there). I expect us to share daily house shores, with food preparation, washing dishes etc. We'll make some meals together and sometimes you will prepare your own.
    Work can be week days or weekends, around 4-5 hours a day, five days a week.

    There are nice small roads and paths in the area for bicycling, and we will also find some opportunities to take trips to some hidden treasures around the island.

    About the host:
    I have traveled a lot, I'm interested in arts and culture, meditation, philosophy and the deeper meaning of things, different cultures, nature naturally, sustainable living, good natural food etc
    I'm turning 67 this year and can feel my body doesn't want to do all the things I want it to and used to be able to. So I go easy and don't push myself. I can be quite impulsive when it comes to work, and I like to chill a lot in between activities. It's enriching to meet people from different parts of the world, but I also need time to just be quiet and have my own space.

    Sorry, I don't have an open wifi connection, the internet I have is on my phone, which I use as a router for my computer that you can use sometimes.

    The diet is varied. I can cater for vegetarians.
    You need a travel insurance.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Many people like to come to Gotland, this island in the middle of the Baltic sea, for the nature, the light and the history. We can explore some of that.
    Life in the country side, a quite simple lifestyle, self sustainable on vegetables.
    We can meditate together if you're into that.
    Plus experimenting with cooking!

    I have traveled the world, into the arts and photography, philosophy and multi-culturalism. We enjoy to discuss different perspectives on life and society.

    Many have expressed that they felt such peace here. It's great to be able to share that. Here are some voices from helpers previous years:
    "It has been such a precious time...and peaceful... I learned a lot trying new things, with herbs from garden, edible wild plants and many kinds of spices!..."
    "Nice and peaceful place... Here you can see, feel an eat plenty nature... suitable for people who wants to learn about vegetable gardening...open minded people... I will come back!"
    "I discovered a new way of life..."
    "Discover how do vegetables look in the ground before to land in my plate... discuss of lot of things together..."
    "I really enjoyed to help with weeding, picking (straw-)berries and some renovation work... Plus: awesome food! ;) See you soon again..."
    "...introduced me many beautiful places as well as farming. I enjoyed everything...has great knowledge of life..."

    The place is located 30 km from Visby on the middle of the island of Gotland. From Visby one can take a bus that runs through Roma, then towards Lye. Get off at the turn off to Bjärges where you can be picked up (unless we arrange something else beforehand). It's is 6 km from the bus stop. Fairly frequent bus traffic around the island especially in the summer.
    There are nice small roads and paths in the area for bicycling, and we will also find some opportunities to take trips to some hidden treasures around the island.
