  • Beschreibung


    After my husband passed away in 2013, I did continue to stay on the farm, and I need some help with some of the outdoor tasks, and tasks which are too heavy for me. I love the world to come to me, and to communicate our old Norwegian cultural Heritage to foreigners, and for myself to get to know more about the different countries in the world. i speak fluently English, and I can make myself understood in German, and I would like to learn more French. I can also help my guests who would like to learn Norwegian to practice the language.

    As for my background, I am educated as a physiotherapist, with a deepening practice in psychomotor physiotherapy. For 22 years I have been working at the University in Trondheim (NTNU) at the Bachelor physiotherapy program there as an assistant professor, teaching physiotherapy, with a specific area in psychiatric and social aspects of physiotherapy. I was also responsible for the international exchange programs for the PT education and did travel quite a bit around the world, I have visited 69 countries.

    This farm has been run ecologically and with regenerative farming methods, with sheep. Even when the farm is situated quite high up in the mountain, for hundreds of years, people have lived on the farm the entire year, also in winter, even if it is a quite steep road up to the farm. We used to have the old breed of Norwegian sheep here for 16 years, the last years the fields have been rented out for grazing animals. The farm is situated at 220 meters above sea, with a beautiful view over the fjord. Trondheim, which is the third biggest city in Norway, is 25 minutes travel with the ferry from Vanvikan.

    They will live in a farm, with a beautiful view over the Trondheimfjord, and an incredibly old cultural landscape, which has been farmland for hundreds of years or more, and it has not been heavily touch by modern farming. There are also many registered cultural heritage settings from older days on the property, and many remains from earlier settlers. I will give a tour of the farm when that is of interest. It is possible to visit a lake nearby for fishing and hiking, which are typical Norwegian holiday activities, and there is also a small rowing boat. There are many beautiful hiking tours and peaks available from the farm. For the ones who might be interested, it will be possible to get some knowledge about how to practice permaculture in agriculture, and how to work with the nature and natural resources, as well as how to grow food from wild plants. It is possible to get introduced to the method 'Forest bathing' after the Japanese tradition Shinrin Yoku, and get to know the nature around the farm.
