    Good Host
  • Description


    We are a small family of mum and son (11) living 50 minutes east of Oslo in Norway with our dog (corgi) and two cats. We're practicing a sustainable approach to gardening, using organic and permaculture principles as a part of this. We are open and spiritually inclined people dedicated to improve ourselves and our lives in accordance to nature.

    We both speak fluent english and enjoy good food, boardgames, yoga, singing, dancing, walks and just being.

    Nature close by is peaceful and beautiful, although we live now very central to a village. Lots of possibilities for meditations and walks if you go just a bit out from the centre.

    Food is all organic, homemade and nourishing.

    Look forwards to hearing from you who would like to take part in our everyday life, helping us out with whatever is needed in and outside :-)
