My husband and I live together with our 2 daughters (2 and 5 years old) at a farm next to Mandal River. I work as a resident at the hospital in Kristiansand, he works as an ingeneer. We have a beautiful holiday house for rent with room for 8 persons. We love gardening and making things grow! As we are both working a lot, we would like to give someone the opportunity to stay in our holiday house and help us out a little bit. In the future we are dreaming of having some animals like goats and hens. Maybe you will be the one helping us with this projects? If you like fishing, it is possible to catch salmon in the river between 1st of june and 15th of september. You can stay here with your family, or even with some friends or together with another workawayer?
This is a good possibility to experience the norwegian countryside and nature. We are open and warm people and would like to invite you to a norwegian meal during your stay. You get to live in a beautiful wooden house with everything you need inside. Maybe you would like to try fishing for salmon? You can take a walk into the woods and experience norwegian wild life right outside your door. 8 km from our litle farm you will find Mandal, wich is a beautiful little town with white wooden houses and small cafè`s.
We need help with gardening, painting, maintenance, small projects like masonry , building stuff and other things that might turn up. Making paths in the wood would be another idea. We will ask you before you come here. We would try to adjust the plans to your skills. It would be good if you had some gardening experience. If you have some special skills, we would like to know. Maybe you could suggest what you can do for us. It is possible to bring your family as well. You get your own house on the farm. In this way you can combine work and pleasures in a very nice way. We expect the adults to help us 3-5 hours each day.
