    Description

    We are an little family consisting of Per (63), Inger (44) and Vinjar (6). We have a beautiful small farm on the west coat of Norway. Apart from the humans we live with our 10 sled dogs, 10 hens, 2 sheep and 2 pigs and 6000 m2 of land. We are dedicated in our work with art, culture and nature. Restoring old houses, gardening, arranging camps for youngsters, and living as close to nature as possible. Our place is rather isolated and staying with us you have to be comfortable living far from people. Per is a craftsman and has been working an a traditional open air museum for the last 30 year. Wintertime he is training as an sled dog musher in the winter season. Inger as working as an actress and does workshops in cooking and outdoor activities. Vinjar as a cool kid who prefers his hammer and saw to Spiderman. He is brought up with a campfire instead of a TV and loves to help his mum and dad both inside and outside. We need help with taking care of the dogs during summer, carpeting, gardening, general maintenance and painting. We believe in sharing experience and knowledge and would love to accommodate you to share and to learn about you.

    By staying with us we hope to give knowledge of a conscious living. We care for nature, human beings and animals and the fact that we need each other to make the best out of it. We also hope to give you insight into hard and good work, quality and dedication. We cannot live without nature, culture and art ang hopefully this will make an imprint on you.

    Your days will consist of helping me along in the garden, giving Per a hand as we are restoring a new part of our old house. The dogs need attention and care during the summer and we have several projects we are preparing for the creative camps we run during summertime. In all this we need an extra hand.
