  • Description


    We are a family of five living in the north-west coast of Norway. Beate (34) works as a controller, Torstein (35) a typical norwegian fisherman, and the kids 15, 5 and 3 years old. We live on a small farm with six goats, two cats and some ducks and hens. We would love some extra hands in periods, doing garden work, painting, helping with the animals and similar.

    We love travelling and meeting new people, but with small children and fulltime work - time is limited. Thats why we want to invite the world at our place instead for a win-win situation. :-D

    Our place is located on a small island with ca 2500 people. The island is flat, but we have a lot of beautiful hiking trips close on the main land. We have kayaks that can be used and can arrange boat for fishing. This place fits to those who wants to be close to nature and sea, or just relax listening to the birds (and our rooster) :- D

  • Help


    Generally garden work, helping out with the animals, easy maintenance work, some wood work and other projects. We have a greenhouse, but also want to make a herb garden next to it and to build a fence around the kitchengarden.

    We prefer two people together as we might be at work weekdays.

    We stick to the 20-25 hours work a week. The volunteering hours can be agreed on and is very flexible.
