Can offcourse learn much. Trim horses hoofs for example. Can learn carpentery or just anything tht we do here.. Maby u want to know swedish language...
The help needed here is various. Like carpentery and building. Painting. Work with wood. Gardening. Planting seeds. Cleaning weed in the growings. Normal household work. Riding and training horses. Feeding and carying for animals ( sometimes kids too)
The work depends in season and also wht most important for the moment. So sometimes there is much work and sometimes less.
This summer we would like to put up a swimmingpool, see if thts possible.
There is not very close to lakes here unfortunately. In summer the kids want to swim all the time...
To go to a swim lake we must take the car. There is small lake close here but just for fishing. My sons love tht.
But there is other things here, lovely forests with berries and mushrooms. Much wild animals too.
Its beautiful nature, still close to city.
As a volonter i would like u to be a little selfgoing since i also work out from home some days. Offcourse i work with u together here in the farm too. Just come along and spend time with me and my family and friends.
Vegetarian or vegan or meateater like me is ok whtever.
Help in kitchen work would also be great.
There is different choises here. A small barack ( cabin ) close to the house with a fireplace. No toilet or water in it. Need to be fixed though but not tht much ,so for now u stay in the house with us . In the big hall up there is beds so several people can sleep over. Food i want us to fix together.
Internet is a bit slow. Its 2.5 km to the bus. Tht goes to city every halfhour. In red days every hour. Bus to city takes less than 20 min.
