  • Description


    We are a Swedish/Portuguese couple, with two boys (5 and 1 years old), living in a farm in the middle of Skåne, South of Sweden.
    It's a wonderful garden (more like a small park :)) with many different plants/trees and also farm animals.
    We are interested in growing vegetables in permanent beds in a ecological way. We also have fruit trees and different berries.

    We grow vegetables and flowers in a small area, on raised beds in the field and greenhouse, therefore we mainly need help with weeding, planting, watering, harvesting, pick berries, etc...
    Other examples are:
    - cleaning the chicken coop (weekly)
    - small fixing in different areas in the garden around, like picking leaves, branches, cut the grass, etc.
    - cleaning the house and cooking regularly (daily)
    - fixing and a new bedroom and also a playground.

    We have more or less a fixed working time schedule, but tasks will vary day to day. During those hours we expect that you are willing to contribute in the best possible way. :)

    We prefer that you as a volunteer:
    - have some experience in gardening
    - are curious and eager to learn
    - take initiative
    - feel comfortable around kids
