    Beschreibung

    This is a small organic farm with the ambition of nurturing the soul and the soil. For many years we (Eric and Emiilia) have had a vision to live a sustainable, spiritual life by putting into practice years of acquired knowledge and training. In the spring of 2017 we bought a small property in the very south of Sweden to realize our dream.

    From the beginning our aim has been to create a small community for simple living and spiritually enlightened life. Simple living consists of using Permaculture principles for growing organic vegetables, berries, fruits and nuts, care for the farm animals according to the teachings of Ahimsa and Goraksya (non-violence, non-slaughter), and using manure to build up soil as in Regenerative Agriculture. Our commitment for nature and animals is based on a belief that the Earth and life are sacred and we need to nurture them and each other.

    Our own spiritual practice is based on the ancient Vaishnava or Bhakti-yoga tradition of India (also known as the Hare Krishna tradition) and contain studying Vaishnava literature, individual mantra meditation and Kirtan-yoga (singing mantras together). All volunteers and visitors are are invited to learn and participate in this. But people practicing other spiritual traditions are also welcomed and offered space for their practices. It is not required to have any spiritual practice at all in order to volunteer at our farm, but while sharing space, life and work together, we all need to have a curious and empathetic attitude towards spirituality.

    We would like our volunteers to stay for two months, and during their stay, we ask from volunteers orderliness, reliability and politeness. For longer stays according to mutual agreement, or becoming a resident member of the community, we expect and offer more commitment. Sometimes we accept volunteers for a shorter time, if we have a special project and need more help with it.

    On the premises, smoking and consumption of alcohol, drugs, meat, fish and eggs are not allowed. Volunteers are required to abstain from these products while on the farm.

    During the winter and spring of 2023 our projects include: Building a flat for a janitor in one of the barns. Creating a place for clay work/ceramics and handicrafts. Continue training the oxen for pulling a cart. Train the horses. Expand the present Nursery/ Orangery. Producing natural skincare products.

    There are also many different, smaller projects in connection to different services, and volunteers are invited to propose and manage these.

    Volunteers interested in building, both willing to learn or already competent, are especially welcome.

    Please note that the chores on the farm is mostly physical and can be demanding if you are not used to physical work.

    We live in the beautiful countryside of southernmost Sweden (Scania), but still relatively close to the cities of Lund, Malmö and Copenhagen. There is a bus stop nearby with decent communication to these bigger cities during the weekdays.

    In the vicinity of the farm there are plenty of opportunities for trekking, cycling and day trips. You may check out the website skaneleden.se . The east and south coasts of Scania are within reach for a day-trip by bus or car, and there are some natural lakes/ponds nearby for swimming, reachable by bike or by a car. This part of Sweden also offers many historical and ancient places for sightseeing, like castles and towns with old architecture.

    At any given time we have a minimum of 4 volunteers staying with us, but can host up to 8. Volunteers mostly live in shared, gender-separated rooms. For married couples or couples in a long-term stable relationship, we try to offer an accommodation together.

    Two sumptuous meals (breakfast and lunch) are prepared every day by a kitchen team and taken together. All who partake in the common meals are expected to contribute towards making this work. For dinner and eventual snacks there is usually fruits, leftovers from lunch, bread and granola available for self-catering.

    Besides inviting volunteers from Workaway and WWOOF Sweden, we also host some volunteers from an EU-program called the European Solidarity Corps. These volunteers are aged 18-30 years. During their stay they have a more organized weekly schedule including formal language training and self-reflection. Our hope is that the interaction between the volunteers from different programs will be mutually beneficial for all involved.
