  • Description

    Description

    We are two adults living on our small farm and permaculture LAND-center.
    Permaculture Denmark has accredited Karensminde as an LAND- center (Learning, Activity, Network, Demonstration- center) and in this capacity you can expect to meet other volunteers from different organizations at the center.
    We grow our own vegetables & fruits, producing sunpower etc.
    We do have 4 grown-up children & families living away from the island.
    We have been volunteers ourselves in Africa for 3 x 2 years.
    Dora is working 4 days a week as OT outside home.

    What else ...

    Our farm is placed on the most beautiful Island in Denmark - if you like nature of any kind, this is the spot for almost everything. Of course we have to share with the tourists during summer time.
    Bornholm also do have plenty of cultural activities of all kinds.
    The local bus is just down the road - and the supermarket is within walking distance.
    We also have bikes you can borrow e.g. to go for a swim in the Baltic Sea or ride through the forrest.
