  • Description


    Come join us at my fathers farm close to the wild river Vindelälven and the great natural reserve of Vindelfjällen.
    Bernt-Erik, my father is soon to be 81 and has been birdwatching for some 70 years. So if you are in to that or would not mind to learn some, this is a good thing.

    Bernt is waiting for surgery this winter and suffering some bad arthritis, he appreciates a companion for conversations etc and needs help with shopping and the general maintenance of the place.

    I (Erik) am a career dropout who is finding my way back through the greens to water my roots. During the spring I'm usually in the mountains, summers and autumns in the soil at my fathers farm and winters traveling or working.

    My siblings Karin and Jonas is on and off the place and so are some good friends, couchsurfers and random helpers to.

    Our Cause is to find and manifest that balance of a truly regenerative Community and Culture.

    Soil and Soul.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Being the right fit for us you will enter an open space of potential which grow as you move through it. We also share our mostly vegan kitchen, skills in finding and preparing the wild treasures of the region and if you like to head out in the wild for some time we have good knowledge and insight of Swedish Lapland and the Norwegian fjords.

    But as mentioned above you will most certainly recognize some new birds and get soil under your nails or sawdust on your feet as well.

  • Help


    We got alot to do getting a local and regional community going. So if you got skills constructing physical and/or social structures you are going to be great help for us.

    We need help building and maintaining structures, working with the soil, and also the good company of calm and open beings who contribute their gift to the common for the good of all life and beyond.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Head to the mountains, forests or the Norwegian fjords. Usually we go on a longer roundtrip of northern Norway a few times a year. If you are in to fishing you got it world class walking distance from the door.
