    We deal with Japanese koi and garden pond equipment and have a recycled 480 m2 greenhouse with six koi ponds as a "Koi Garden".

    We are building a small "apartment" for visitors and workawyers next to our house with a toilet, kitchen and living room of about 25 m2. Untill this project is completed we can only accomodate one workaway at the time.
    Practical workawayers with building experience are appreciated. Work with stone, gardening, aquaponic, design, cement, wood, glassfiber, plumbing, electrical, mechanic, etc.
    We love recycling., stone work, gardening, aquaponic and ecological farming in small scale.

    Volunteers will not help with anything related to selling products and they will only help with our greenhouse, private garden and home.
