  • Description


    Hey there. My name is Jessica, my husbands name is Staffan and our son is called Ville and he is 8 years old. The dogs name Is Kompis.
    We have started an ecological project of cultivating sea buckthorn. We planted 7000 bushes in year 2016 and will now try to cope with this completely ecological. This is a big challenge, both for us and to keep up with the weed, as we both work elsewhere as well. Staffan is a photographer and I work in a hardware store.
    Last year we did harvest for the first time and had a lot of new stuff to learn, it was fun but hard. The harvest is in augusti and september.
    We live in Förslöv in southern Sweden and our field is 5 minutes from our home, most days you can borrow a car. We need help with a little planting, a lot of weed cleaning and some other projects such as website etc.

    We have 3 different companies and hope to learn and inspire workaways to find their own projects and follow their dreams. Ecologist and large scale cultivation is new to us and we learn ourselves while we go along. Growing in the garden for self-catering is something we have done for a several years now.
    I hope that by sharing space with good people we can all benefit and learn to understand, share, respect, and care for each other.
    The area were we live is great nature we have the sea 5 minuts from the house and also the forest. You can borrow bike if you feel lika that or take the train that is really close to the house to travel the near by surroundings.

  • Accommodation


    We live in a normal house, and accommodation will be in our cellar with your own toilet but shared shower.
    The rest of the house is free to use together with us. If you travel together as a couple or friends its easier, because we only have one room. There is now door to close between the stairs and your room.
    Food is self served or we do prepare it together, depend on our schedule, but hopefully we do at least the evening meal together.
    Breakfast is done on your own and lunch is most days probably something you can bring to the field.
