Hey there. My name is Jessica, my husbands name is Staffan and our son is called Ville and he is 10 years old. The dogs name Is Kompis.
We started an ecological project of cultivating sea buckthornin 2016. We planted 7000 bushes 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.
Now we have harvest the first time on both field but is still learning, it is fun but hard. The harvest is in augusti and September.
We have also started to plant some now crops.
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.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
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.
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, gardening in the yard at home. In august-september we harvest the seabuckthorn.
We live in a normal house, and accommodation will be in our cellar, or in the office room, 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 two rooms.
Food is self served or we do prepare it together, depend on our schedule, but we always try to do at least the evening meal together. If everything works out we do one dinner each in the week together.
Breakfast is done on your own and lunch is most days probably something you can bring to the field.
When you stay with us you are a part of the family, so cleaning the house and help us in the garden is not part of the working hours, its apart of being with our family.
The village of Förslöv has beautiful surroundings, close to the sea, if your like swimming in the ocean. It takes 15 min. to nearby town Båstad, and 50 minutes to the peninsula of Kullaberg if you like climbing or diving. We are also close to the forest if you like hiking and being out in the nature. It takes 30 minuter to Helsingborg if you like to go to a bigger city. We have bus and a train station really close to your house.
