  • Description

    Description

    In the heart of the Scandinavian Islands we're driving an ecological project focussing on selfsufficiency. We are a growing family of 4 with a lot of different animals (our beloved dog, chicken, bees and our neighbours donkeys and horses).

    Especially in summer when the days are long and full of light, we have so much to do that we are happy to welcome any kind of help. Besides the main activity in the garden, there are also lots of other activities like renovating and building projects.

    Hasslebo is located on the small island of Kumlinge (250 inhabitants) in the outer archipelago of the Åland Islands.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are both from Germany and live on a pretty little island which belongs to Finland, where all the people are speaking swedish :) So already some cultural insights possible, also our helpers come from all over the world and are happy to have a talk in between.

    During the summer we welcome volunteers to help us with a lot of activities including general maintenance of the house, our huge garden and sometimes babysitting (our son Kilian was born 2017 and our second son Valentin was born in august 2020) - typical works are cleaning, cooking, grassclipping, all kinds of maintenance.

    Additionally, we are working on several "construction sites" indoor and outdoor to improve our situation here (e.g. building a new sauna). These activities will also take place before and after the "high season" (june - august) so you can contact us regarding those months as well.

    There's lot of flexibility in working, no fixed schedule.
