    dear fellow adventurers 🙏

    We warmly invite you to our vision of a life not separated from ourselves, each other and nature...
    Where we together create a responsible & playful environment we want to live, learn, thrive and grow in.
    We are privileged to live in one of the most free countries in the world, with amazing suroundings blessed with 4 very different seasons.
    These seasons have its unique qualities as well as possibilities, challenges and tasks.

    Right now we are in the middle of fall when there are amazing opportunities to dig in to the various gardening projects and make ready before winter..
    As we are currently expanding our vision with a large retreatcenter as the new "heart" of the place, the land around it is "under construction" - meaning we will now create and maintained the magical garden we have envisioned from scratch.

    Here you will be part of an international team of volunteers - sometimes a larger group and some times smaller, depending on the season as well as activities and current needs of the center.

    You will have an amazing time here with lakes, nature, reconnecting and detox in a great home.

    Your tasks will be very diverse. It includes both indoor & outdoor work, we follow the weather to make it a nice experience for you. Some easy and some requires more adept knowledge...

    We also have a dog and cat who will accompany you.

    ...............................................................................

    Presentation:

    We are Ludde and Louise. We live in a beautiful countryside farm/community together with our beautiful 2 year old daughter Milou. We also have a cat, (Tiger) and a dog (Osho).
    From time to time our 2 teenagers join in...
    Valentina have stepped in and taken the role of being in charge for all volonteers as well as the projects at hand - meaning she will be your first point of contact during your stay with us.

    Our neighbour is a big horse stable so there are a lot of Icelandic horses surrounding the houses.

    At this point lots of things in the garden needs attention - an opportunity to dig in your hands in to the earth, use your muscles and creativity.

    About our place:
    We have been renovating and preserving the houses and garden the last decade. The garden is a flowery haven with lots of small "rooms", allowing both interaction and privacy. The houses is designed for many people to be able to stay over. We sometimes create communal living weekends where we live, cook, eat, meditate, do yoga, play, dance and do everything together in a nice and harmonious flow.
    Our main objective is to host retreats with a focus on personal development as well as wellness.
    When we have retreats, parts of the land will be off limit but there is plenty of space to be in anyway.
    We are only 30 minutes with car from Stockholm city center, about 1 hour with public transport, which means you'll be able to combine city life with natures silence and peacefulness.

    The farm is today centered around a communial house (the Temple), were we usually Meditate, share, dance, yoga watch movies on the large cinema screen.
    Life here is a combination of peacefulness and full action...

    At this point we are looking for people that have some kind of experience of DIY, gardening skills as well as very organised people to create order in this creative heaven...

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Talk soon...

    Ludde, Louise & Valentina

    Help

    The main help required is maintenance and handy projects:
    - Building fences, pergolas and other constructions in the garden.
    - preparing a vegetable garden
    - repainting the houses
    - look after the garden which constantly needs a hand with lawn mowing, weeding, watering
    - Cutting up wood and constructing a place where all of it can be stored
    - cutting down busches
    - support with maintenance in the houses.
    Some other help around the house with cooking, cleaning and laundry would be appreciated as well. We can share cooking, however if you are skilled in that, I would be more than happy to leave more room for that quality. We eat gluten free and slowly transferring into vegetarian/vegan food.

    Love

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You will be living together with the others in the team in the newly built center.
    Sharing room with one other volonteer.
    We live in a kind of "under construction" (though really cool) environment during these times as we are currently renovating other areas.
    the sleeping rooms are small and there is a lot of other spaces around that makes you feel expanded.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There's wifi in the house, which you're free to use when you're not working. Down by the lake you can go swimming and we sometimes enjoy the sauna there. There are beautiful forests you can walk in, and if season there's plenty of berries and mushrooms to pick.

    You are a bit remote out here (which is the whole idea) but there's a bus leaving about 1 km away, taking you to Tumba's commuter train station, which takes you to Stockholm City, if you want to go more Urban on your days off. The whole ride with bus and commuter train takes about 1 hour. Also there is an extra car that can be used to get to Tumba and run errands as necessary.
