  • Beschreibung


    We are a young couple from Germany that moved to Sweden in June 2016 after some years of travelling. Since then we are renovating the house ourselves. Lorenz (29) is a carpenter and Nina (29) works as a pre-school teacher here in Sweden. We live on the edge of a tiny village and have around 3 hectars of grasslands and forest. Our goal is to create a forest garden based on agroforestry and permaculture principles. In 2017 we started with a smaller permaculture-based field for annual vegetables. In 2018 we started with the forest garden that now contains more than 100 different perennial plant/tree species, hills and a pond and covers an area of 5000sqm. In 2019 we want to extend the forest garden until it reaches around one hectar in size. That's why we need helping hands to create a sustainable food and resource production forest from the very beginning. Furthermore we want to build / renovate different kinds of things like an old cabin also located on the property and a mongolian yurt. Around April we will also need a lot of help with painting (seed oil based color) aswell. In may we will need help planting and establishing an Aquaponic (fish poo based vegetable growing) system around our pond. Like every year we need to make firewood, gather metal trash, taking care of the annual vegetables, walking the dog and plenty of other stuff.

    We are welcoming everyone who is enjoying to work outside and likes to spent the free time at one of the beautiful lakes nearby (we have a canoe) or wants to do some bicycle tours in the forest. Or whatever you want to do in nature. Also the seaside is only 50km away in two directions (south and east). We appreciate if you are willing to help out approximately 5 hours a day / 5 days a week. (We are not that strict about timetables and other stuff that produces stress where there should not be one). We are trying to use mainly recycled/second hand materials and we are both vegetarians, but it's ok for us if you are not. We have a dog and chickens.
    As we have many small projects going on we prefer to have workawayers for about two weeks. We live all in a small house together thats why we prefer that kind of duration.

    You have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the nature in southern Sweden. There are beautiful lakes everywhere, where you can Barbecue, take a bath, paddle the canoe, spot moose or just sit and listen to quietness. We also have some bikes that you can use. Anyways it is always nice to have good company, good conversations and the possibility to exchange and learn from each other.
