  • Beschreibung


    We are a biochemist and engineer couple in their 40s, who after having travelled and volunteered a lot, found a new path in life to follow.
    We learnt plenty during our volunteering tours, and we would like to give something back.
    We would love to host people with open minds and souls, willing to help in the first steps into our new lifestyle. Who knows, maybe it turns out to be also your path!

    We want to live surrounded by forest, a slow life, tending to self-sufficiency and in deep respect, especially to nature and environment.
    So we got an antique abandoned wooden house, and we have been fixing it to make it more comfortable to live in, without disturbing the nature around. There is 1,5ha of land in which we set self-made greenhouses and we are experimenting in growing our food using ideas of permaculture/ companion planting.

    We use mostly recycled materials and do most of things with our hands, improvising, solving and learning on the way.

  • Arbeit


    There are lots of projects always going on. From building / upcycling to gardening / greenhouse, general tidying, painting, walking the dog, etc. Let's see what is going on and what interests you!
    ..some tasks might be physically demanding, but we won't ask you to do anything we won't do.
    5hs/5days/week in exchange for accommodation and food. On your days off we can offer you a ride to the bus stop (bus going to Tampere or to Pori) or even taking you to Tampere if we need to drive there.
    Planned projects for summer 2022: front garden needs a complete makeover (lots to do in the back as well :D), veranda needs work, area around the pond & the pond itself needs TLC & several DIY construction projects. Perhaps building the third greenhouse, to be seen.

  • Unterkunft


    We can offer accommodation in a modest room outside of the house, we also have a caravan parked in the patio, or a parking spot for your campervan. We have electricity, water from the well (biologic way of waste water handling.) and dry-toilettes.. We have a shower and traditional sauna, to experience in a very Finnish way!

    Our house is surrounded by nature and there are good hiking possibilities, natural parks nearby, a small village with services a bit over 1km from us, lake and little swimming beach, etc. We can lend a bike for you. Tampere city is 40min away to the east, Pori with its nice Yyteri beach a little further to the west.

    We try to eat healthy and ethically, but we don't have enough time or money to cook specific diets differently. Basically "we eat what we have''.

    Please note, we are really happy to provide you with fresh, healthy, but basic food, as we eat ourselves. If you require an expensive/specific diet, special foods or wish to eat abnormal quantities of anything then we kindly ask that you buy these yourself. Cooking & washing dishes shared equally among everyone - we expect you to participate.

    We have a communal lunch together on working days. Meal time is a very important part of the day, so please join us.

    Please note the location is remote. We take volunteers for about a week at a time. This is not for you if you like to party.
