  • Description


    Hi & thanks for looking at our profile! We are in a three-hectare homestead in the countryside of Finland. It's a permaculture garden and education centre in the making. We have some forest, lots of berry bushes and fruit trees, a traditional no-till vegetable garden and an old house and other buildings, and always lots of projects to work on!

    This is a small place, so we only have projects for one workawayer at a time and for no longer than about one week at a time.

    We, Lumia and Dominik, are a finnish-german married couple, no kids, one cat. We live in a rural area, no neighbors in sight here, so you really get to enjoy peace and quiet, sauna, nature... welcome!

    Organic methods: We are a home-sized farm/homestead, not certified in any way. We do not use any pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilisers on our premises. We are a permaculture paradase in the making and also have a rather large organic, no-till annual vegetable garden where we mulch and crop rotate.

    We are vegetarian and can host vegan guests and do our best to accommodate other dietary needs, too.

    Preferred hosting time: from a few days to about two weeks. Internet access is available.
