    Beschreibung

    Welcome to the beautiful Swedish countryside, a welcoming family and small farm. The household consists of our toddler Jay age 1, my older children Liam age 13 and Talila age 15, my husband Egemen and me, Mariel. We also have two cuddly cats, lots of chickens and hens, bees, two delightful livestock guardian dogs plus sheep.

    The house we live in is an old train station house, built in the early 1900's. As we moved in July 2021 and it had been left untended for a long time, it is in need of a lot of work. It has a lot of potential to be very charming and unique, with a lot of love, hard work and paint.

    We have a no-dig vegetable garden that needs some tending to. We also have bees, berry bushes and hazelnut trees.

    As a family we like to go on outdoor adventures: swimming, hiking, canoeing, camping, skiing, skating, etc. On rainy days we like to sauna, play cards and board games, or just enjoy a good movie or TV show together.

    I work part time as a mental health counsellor where I combine solution-oriented talks with breath- and body work and meditation. I am also a textile artist and teach felting classes. I enjoy dancing, hiking, running, meditating, and other creative activities.

    Egemen is from Turkey and has been in Sweden for 6 years now. He is interested in permaculture, building, gardening, animals of all kinds, cooking and baking.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    You can learn about living on a small homestead: gardening, bee keeping, harvesting and animal care.

    You can also learn about fixing up old wooden houses in an eco-friendly and economic manner. Making your own clay and linseed oil paint, clay plastering, roofing, building rocket mass heaters, etc.

    Egemen is from Turkey and passionate about good food. He is happy to share his skills and share stories from his homeland.

    We speak English at home, as I have partially grown up in the US and my kids' father is from the US. My kids are used to having volunteers in the house as we hosted together for many years, with very positive reviews.

    The closeness to my brother's perma-culture farm is also a great social and experiential opportunity! In the summer, there will be lots of swimming in nearby lakes and nature experiences in general.

    We have a camper on the property where we normally house volunteers in the summer. This gives volunteers some privacy.

    We all help out with cooking, washing up and keeping the house tidy. The cooking and washing up is not included in the help hours. Vegetarians can easily be accommodated. Vegans may need to cook a bit of their own food on the side.

    On your time off you are welcome to explore the area on your own, or perhaps with another volunteer from my brother's farm. You are welcome to borrow the car when it is available, or a bike. There is plenty to explore in the area, like 4 nature preservation areas just minutes away, different nature trails, historical sites, small towns and cities, etc. Previous volunteers have enjoyed biking to lakes in the area and watching the sunrise or sunset, hiking. Or of course hang out with us.

    Always check with me before bringing a pet and we will see if it seems like it will work out with the pets that are already here.
