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)
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
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!
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.
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:))
This host offers a language exchange
This host has indicated that they are interested in sharing their own language or learning a new language.

Every guest would have a fully furnished private room with double bed and internet connection at Rūta’s house. The fridge and it’s surroundings are stuffed of mainly organic food for free. No matter if you are vegan or a hardcore meat eater.
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!
