    Hello Future Visitor

    The weed grows faster than i manage to clear!
    I mainly need help weeding the vegetable-garden during the summer.

    I mooved to this neglected but lovely small place at the countryside, an old house which im about to fix in Vissenbjerg with a lovely wild garden and a vegetable garden, with food and flowers.

    Diet: vegan and vegetarian

    I live a simple lifestyle, and as sustainable as possible. I love nature and im interrested in growing vegetables, herbs and flowers, and finding eatable wild plants and mushrooms.
    Im also interrested in therapy and personal growth, and for me, beeing close to nature is a part of that.
    I am a sociologist and live here by my self. I have not yet time for holding animals, but i love the wild ones, happy and free in their natural habitat: the birds, the rabbit, the insects, the frogs, and the dear ones in a while.
    If you can build, nest boxes is needed here.
    Your help will be very appreciated as I do everything by my self, i do not have car but old bikes.

    Im an openminded person, and Im allways curious about other cultures and countries and meeting new people.

    I was myself volunteering organic gardening in sweden and Germany a few years back, I really liket it, so much that i decided to leave the city and move to the countrysite.

    You'll need to bring:
    (Rain)-boots for working, when it rains the field is very muddy.
    Warm clothes - The housing may be cool.
    Exept summer i recoment to bring a sleeping bag

    I live in one of Funens most beautiful areas called 'Højfyn' (high-Funen). You can bike and hike around and experience protected areas and beautifull views from the hills around. Experience the beauty of a simple, sustainable lifestyle. Learn to grow organic.

    What else ...

    The trainstation is 300 meter from the house so its very simple to get around. Protected areas are 2 km from the house, and 4 km away is Funens highest point. There are good options to go hiking in the area. The train to Odense just takes 15 minutes, here you can visit H.C. Andersens Birth House.
