    Description

    Sweden's first holistic school!

    This is an Holistic school for a sustainable life.

    We started this amazing and innovative school project 2018. With this school we want to set a new path for all the generations to come. To live in a sustainable way in connection with nature, ourselves and each other, because it's the only thing that will allow our planet and our children's children to live in a healthy society.

    people from all over the world have stayed here in Molkom , connected through the local course center. They have made themselves a life here, starting businesses and projects, creating families and having children, enriching and developing the whole society, people who are looking for an alternative way of life in an attempt to be true to their inner selves, to live closer to nature and to minimize consumerism and stress. Our school is the where this community's children go and has a new approach to pedagogy and learning. The school has classes F-9 (ages 6 - 16).

    We have started a primary school in August 2018!
    Please apply only 2021 for May and onwards if you have interest to volunteer.

    We have a great location for the school in an old village school here in Molkom, Värmland. Your contribution and work will provide the children with a beautiful outdoor environment. We use mainly organic and sustainable material for furniture and decorating, we use lots of herbs and plants for outdoor cooking and teaching , which also creates a connection to our interrelatedness, the positive impact of a safe and toxic free environment. We already have a lovely permaculture forest garden and vegetable garden which we want to expand and looking for helping hands.

    Here are some examples of what skills we are looking for to make the school garden more beautiful.
    -We are looking for someone with practical skills and knows how to take care of perennial plants, have harvested before fruits, berries, herbs and knows to tell apart different plants.
    - We'd like you to have an interest in compost, lawn maintenance, weeding and watering.
    - Complement our team while enjoying to be around children and interacting with them.
    - We might build a school-greenhouse in 2021, we'd love some help to support with putting the new plants in the greenhouse.
    -of course it's important as well that you can work both in a team and at the same time have some independency to see priorities and can follow specific instructions from the gardener both verbally and written.

    To apply for working at our school we ask you to stay for a minimum of 1 month, preferably 3. This makes it easier for us to make projects happen with you being involved and to have a safe environment for our students.
