    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The most unique part with our place is that we are completely off grid. We are constantly developing our system and are learning as we go. We learn from our own mistakes, from the surroundings and from likeminded people. We hope that people who stay with us can join us in the learning process in the ongoing projects.
    There will defenitely be a good chance to learn alot about bees for people who stay with us during the summer months.

    We are constantly working on a variety of projects to choose from if you stay with us. For example developing our off grid system, building stuff, developing the garden, beekeeping, carpenting, u name it. Ofcoure the list is depending on the season.
    Might be that you have a great idea of how to improve life here, if that is the case we are happy to give you a go.

    There will also be some day to day work as looking after the garden, chopping wood, cooking, cleaning, washing up and all other things that needs to be done in a household. We have two cats and two pigs that needs daily attention.

    Since we are working and studying full time you will spend many hours during the days on your own. (September-May)
    This will ofcourse vary a bit depending on school, work and holidays. We spend as much time at home as we can.
    We are both travelers so we enjoy having people at our place and spending time together.
