    ***WE ARE COVID19 FRIENDLY*** ***please contact us with any COVID 19 queries***
    Hello dear world wandering souls! We call ourselves an eco village... of two houses:)))
    Some higher forces led us to a tiny village called Høed (on Fyn island). We share the same ideas of community, slow lifestyle, we dream (and work towards) of having an edible forrest, herb plantation, biodynamic apiary and permaculture based garden.
    By “us” I mean:
    1. Aslak (gardener and all in general handy man)
    2. Rūta (bee keeper)

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are of Danish, Lithuanian origin. In other words - very different cultural backgrounds, and yet we want to experience many more of them :)
    That’s why any person from any corner of the world is very welcome!
    We want to reach the point, where, with a humble joy, we could say that we are self sufficient offgrid dwellers. Maybe that’s why our place might be considered special.
    In a meanwhile, we would like to learn to be the best we can be individually and as community. Hopefully, with a potential workaway’ers unlock the secrets of horticulture, building and being happy together in the now!

  • Help


    We would like to invite other dreamers to stay with us and work shoulder to shoulder while fixing up a traditional danish straw roof houses and getting down and dirty in the garden.
    -Nota bene-
    At the moment the main focus goes on Rūta’s garden, there are four projects that she needs help with:
    1. In good weather - changing roof tiles.
    2. Building a stone hedge for flowers by the road.
    3. Cleaning the old pond and setting up a small fountain for birds and bees.
    4. Preparing the are for a greenhouse - making it weed and bush free.
    5.Laying out 2 new terrace patios
    6. Painting Windows and possible other paintworks.

    No special needs required. Just kindness, attentiveness, a bit of concentration and communication and absence of too many tumbs.
    Well if you are an experienced carpenter, you wouldn’t be kicked out:))

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The main attractions in Høed are peace and silence (except few farm machines passing by), gorgeous sunsets, totally black nights and starry skies.
    In some places there’s not even a mobile signal.
    But the best thing ever - beach just 5km away!!! For fishing, swimming, sunbathing, you name it!
