    UPDATE MAY 2021:
    I will host only one workshop this year and the date is june 21-30. It is flexible to join any days during this period.

    I'm building an Earthship in Sweden!
    Come join me and my family on a cool adventure in the Swedish forest :)

    The first half of the earthship is almost complete, but there is an addition to build with more bedrooms, and lots of landscaping to do to start a permaculture foodforest and a beautiful garden.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You get to learn different building techniques, like cob, carpentry, pounding tires, concrete, glassbottlewalls, stones and so on.
    You get to learn the principles about earthships and selfsustainable housing, and off grid living.
    We often go to the lake or river to swim, we enjoy the forest around here and pick mushrooms and berries.

  • Help


    I need help to build the earthship, it can be all types of different techniques. You need no skills, because I'll teach you. I also want to start growing food, so some garden work will be too,

    I'm a single mother with three children, and I work mostly four days a week. I'm not always at the house, which gives you as volunteer the availability to have a day off, explore the surroundings or work in your own speed at the house.
    My kids loves to play with all our guests! They speak Swedish and English.

    During summer we often go to a lake or the river to clean up.
