    Description

    Hi! We are a family of four living on Kimito Island. We have two kids (4,5 year old boy and 1,5 year old girl). My husband is a farmer and I am a student. We need help doing household tasks such as cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, dog walking and some child care. I am originally from Canada and am English speaking and so am also hoping to expose our kids to more english words and conversation.

    SUMMER MONTHS: We are especially looking for help during the summer season. From Middle of June - Middle of August.

    The farm where you will be living has been in my husbands family for 10 generations. Today the farm is organic and we have both pigs and cows. The animals are well cared for and live mainly outdoors. The sourroundings and nature is beautiful; we are for example just a kilometer away from the sea and close to the forest and walking paths. On our farm we also have a sports hall that you can use. Volounteers will also have access to the family car. Our family is bilingual: Swedish and English. We have good fresh ingredients for making food. You are welcome to join on family outings.

    Our home is on the countryside and is rather remote. We are about 12km away from the nearest town centre.
