  • Beschreibung


    Our organic farm is a small, non-commercial hobby farm; farming herbs, some vegetables, potatoes and berries. We produce for sales directly from our farm and at food circles for organic & regional food; excess production is given to the local food bank.

    Our location is ab. 60 km north of Helsinki. All around us is farm land, forest, lake and a large golf place; not too many people, not too much traffic - the place is wonderful peaceful and the air is pure. We have an own water well and biologic way of waste water handling.

    We need volunteers to:
    - Cleaning the duck house, giving them fresh water and food every day.
    - In early spring, grow tomato, chilli and some herbs indoors which will later be planted in the greenhouse and the field.
    - In May and June, sow and plant.
    - In summer and autumn collect herbs (also from nature), dry and produce (e.g. teas),
    - Mow meadow and lawn (with lawn tractor),
    - Mulch the plants (with the cut-grass),
    - Irrigate,
    - Hoe and weed,
    - Harvest, pick berries,
    - Help with the selling.
    - Making firewood, bringing the wood into the shed.

    Our 2 cats are outdoor and the 2 dogs live in our private rooms, they are all from the animal shelters. We also have 7 ducks and they are just pets as well. :=)

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Get to know the Finnish county-side way of living; enjoy sauna every day if you want; go fishing, berry and mushroom picking; or visit Helsinki, other cities, national parks or tourist places, if you like.

    You can learn all about the power of herbs, if you are interested and see how to farm them, which to collect from the wild and what to do with them.

    We run a small organic farm in South-Finland. Each season -from May to October- we have most of our helpers on cost & logis agreement via an advertisement that we place in an organic food journal. So far only very few times we had a helper from work away, as we are also advertising in other places.

    Sometimes we could also need help from a craftsman: the old sauna could need a new floor and it's outer walls a new laths. Also some of the vehicles (tractor, van) could need some care and maintenance. In winter / early spring we could sometimes host someone to help us with forest work and fire wood.
