    Description

    *update 2020*
    We look out for a group of 4-5 Workaway’ers for the period 3-30 May 2020. We are used to gather groups like this a few times every year since this setting works well for us (and the volunteers!) Accordingly, this means that we prefer persons who can join the group for the whole period.
    The work here is to help with different garden projects, general maintenance, stone paths, carpentering, weeding, repairing and other farm work, mostly outdoors and some of it might be rather heavy work.

    We live on a small farm on the island of Bornholm, in Denmark. We have a big organic vegetable and flower garden and animals, which include 5 horses, 2 pigs, 4 sheep, 2 cats, 7 ducks, a lot of chicken and 2 dogs. The farm is located close to the coast in a beautiful area.

    You will probably meet some of our children, Astrid (30), Janus (27), Emma (27), Freja (24) Oskar (23), and Iris (21) during weekends and holidays.

    We train our dogs, horses and mini pigs with clicker training (positive reinforcement) and we use horsemanship with our horses.

    Finn works full time and Susan works part time during the week, so sometimes you will be working on your own.

    Practical skills aquired from the many different tasks around the farm. A relaxed environment where you will feel at home in no time. It is also possible to borrow a car or bike from us to explore the island.

    It may be possible to try to ride the horses, but as we ride differently to most riding schools you will only ride accompanied by someone who knows the horses - this is whether you have experience or not.

    The name of the island is Bornholm (40.000 citizens) however the island is very popular during the summer. It is located in the Baltic sea and is closer to Sweden than to the rest of Denmark. It is the only place in Denmark with a rocky terrain and since the island is small you are never too far from the ocean (whether you like rocks, stone or sand beaches).

    The farm is located right next to the ocean by "Teglkås", it is possible to swim from the coast. And there are hiking routes, for example to "Jon's Kapel".
