  • Description


    We are a family living in Oppland, Norway, near Norways biggest lake Mjosa. It is a scenic area with nice forests nearby that provide plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities.

    We are transforming our farm into a productive ecosystem that meets as much of our needs for food and energy as possible, at the same time as we are building fertility and biodiversity. We are inspired by ecology and permaculture and see nature as our greatest teacher.

    Kids live on site, and we are a busy family. We will be happy to show you around, introduce you to our farm and include you in our daily work. But we will also expect you to be able to work independantly, as we will be busy taking care of kids and tasks ourselves. So please consider if you have the determination and mindset needed for independant work.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a rural area, with plenty of opportunities for experiences in nature. I have finished a permaculture design certificate course, and use permaculture thinking in designing the farm.

  • Help


    This year, we will be busy planting trees and bushes, tending a kitchen garden with vegetables, tending to our food forest of perennial vegetables and herbs, looking after our chickens, making firewood and wood chips and harvesting wild food. We will also tidy and clean up around the site, because it was left untended to for 50 years befare we came and needs our loving care.

  • Accommodation


    You will live in a small, cosy house on the farm, just a few metres away from the main house where we live. The standard in the house is basic. You will mostly cater for yourself with food we provide. We share breaks and tasks and meals when possible.
    There are two bedrooms in the house, and we accept up to four at a time, so you might be sharing a room.
