    Fellow Workawayers, it's with a warm heart I welcome you to my little place on earth. This year I have many plans and I'd love it if you wanted to join me! There are fences to be looked over (and repaired haha), a barn to be painted, plants to water and chickens to feed. There is also a sea to plunge, a forest to wander and rocks to climb. There's mackerel to put on the barbeque and tomatoes to put in the sallad.

    Orust island is a beautiful vibrant place with a stunning coast and lush inland - I encourage you to explore it while you are here. I have bikes you can use and an old Saab that needs weekly exercise. In spring and early summer I go forage for wild foods like nettles, ramsons, sand leeks and garlic mustards - and later blueberries, lingonberries, chanterelles and other mushrooms.

    In your free time you can also go hiking, horse riding, rock climbing, cycling, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling and fishing.

    I don't like to count the hours I work myself and I'm not going to count yours either. I belive in mutual exchange and communication.

    If you have any questions - just ask!

    🐒 Caroline

    I can share the things I've learnt about growing food and having animals, it's an ongoing learning process! I can also share my view on health and nutrition, wild plants and old techniques of cooking.
