  • Description

    Description

    Living on a farm where we have horses, sheep, ducks and bees. In the park around the mansion there is an art exhibition, which is enlarged every year. 2018 there were approx 50 students from two art schools nearby who produce a exhibition. 2019 it was the school children in the nearby village. 2020 was an isolated corona-year but this year 2021 we will make a big outdoor mosaic with marble. The farm is 16 km outside Linköping, with good transportation (bus and train or bike).

    This autumn you will help me finish the mosaik, work in the garden, a little work with the animals, paint and many other things that must be done on the farm. You will make dinner every other day on weekdays or more often if you like to cook.

    The farm is situated 16 km outside Linköping. You can either bike to the middle of the city on excellent biking roads (approx 40 min), or take bus/bike and train to the city, approx 15 (bus/bike) + 7 minutes (train every 30 minutes). Linköping is a nice city with a university and lots of cultural activities.
