  • Description


    Hi, I am Douglas L. I live in the wonderful Botebo countryside with an amazing 200m longest river in Sweden.

    I will sell my farm. Help me out to fix the farm so it looks nice, no renovating just pimping!
    In addition to my profession in the social work field where I work with divers’ people from different socio-economic cultural and abilities. As the perfect way to escape the busy country life, I embrace the countryside life and farming. Since my children are grown up and are focussing on their family, I devote my life to chicken, couple of dogs and horses. Furthermore, I love fixing things around the house and love to do general maintenance duties (plumbing, electrical...). Additionally, I was trained as a carpenter. Another hobby that I enjoy a lot is taking photographs.

    Lately, I have built a big greenhouse, hence I need help with it and assistance with the animals, some cleaning, and general duties around the farm.

    I live and a big house with a side self-contained accommodation that need to be cleared, so, now I can host one to two people who can have his/her own room in my big house.

    In return of getting assistance, I can teach.

    Farming / gardening skills
    Horse riding
    Electrical/plumbing skills
    Swedish language...
