  • Description


    We are a self-supporting family with an 9-year-old son who has been living on a farm by a river in south-east Sweden since mid-April. We would like to set up an eco-project here. We have experience in permaculture, self-sufficiency, ecological building and offer our many years of knowledge in exchange for help on the farm. We live vegan and have a guest room in the house as accommodation. We are happy to learn Swedish from our helpers. In the beginning we would appreciate help with tidying up the farm, the garden and the house. We live in the municipality of Hultsfred, near the village of Järnforsen right by a river, Vimmerby is half an hour away and the Baltic Sea 45 minutes.

    Preference for female helpers !
