  • Description


    We are having a 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.
    Our grownup 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. Kurt is busy making a wooden workshop in another place of ours.

    Gardening: planting, weeding, collecting vegetables, fruits and seeds.
    Looking after our small goats, ducks and chickens
    Cutting trees, preparing firewood.
    General maintenance of buildings and fences.
    Househelp: cleaning, cooking and conserving vegetables and fruit.

    It is a good idea to bring practical clothes and rubber boots for working - sometimes we have to work even in the rain.

    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.
