We're Dennis (builder) and Ayet (artist). We enjoy freeganism (not to be confused with veganism), like dumpsterdiving and we recycle and reclaim as much as we can. In 2009 Dennis was a volunteer at the Lammas Eco village in Wales and worked closely with Simon Dale who inspired him to live alternatively. Recently Ayet joined this lifestyle. We have a vegetable garden and several small natural houses, such as a Treehouse and a Sculptured House. We started on building a small art studio and turning the workshop into a cafe and cultural place with a stage for performances and our first Film Festival in July 2020.

Help in the house
We can teach building skills and how to live more self-sufficiently. You can join us on dumpsterdive trips. We have a large library with 95% English books. Plenty of practice in English conversations, about life and everything that is important about it.
We need help with the vegetable garden, Japanese moss garden, constructing and renovation of small natural buildings. Help with cooking is optional ;) No experience is needed. We're not looking for experts. If anti-consumerism, self-sufficiency and creativity is something that is part of you, feel free to contact us. If you do write us, please don't write one or a few sentences but write about who you are, why you choose us and what your expectations and ambitions are, for example. If you tell us that you're interested in sustainability and you come by plane, we're not going to take you serious.
Your own private cabin that you sometimes share with another volunteer. Long-term volunteers will have the option to sleep in the Treehouse or Sculptured House occasionally.
We live 2 km from a small train station, that brings you to the closest villages in 15 minutes or 30 minutes to the closest city Karlstad. Our place is surrounded by forest and close to swimming lakes.
