  • Description

    Description

    We are a family who just moved in to a farm from 1861. We work from home as a composer and a yoga studio owner. We have kids and we love nature. We live on the beautiful island Møn, in the countryside near to the ocean and forrest. 1,15 minuts from the capital copenhagen.

    We have an ekstra apartment in the house and in exchange for living there we would love help with renovating, painting windows, gardening and keeping the house, cooking and we are open for suggestions and creative projetcts.

    On the land we are creating a eco-camp. A little village of canvas tents (glamping tents). It will be open for guests from april-october 2022 and we are just now beginning to built and create eco-toilets, outdoor kitchen, bonfire places, sauna and outdoor showers. We would love your help and creativity in this proces: .

    The farm is in need of renovation. We have just finished renovating the main house and the apartment. now it is time for the garden, the stables and the camp. This is were we are looking for help.

    So if you like meaningful, physical work, sometimes with kids hanging around sometimes not, and also appreciate time and space for your own then we might be a match! All in all we are very flexible and are willing to find a good balance in all of it for all of us! This is all very new to us, but we are sure, that we can find a good way together 🌱

    We have an ekstra apartment in the house and in exchange for living there we would love help with renovating (big and small tasks), painting windows, gardening and keeping the house, cleaning, cooking and we are open for suggestions and creative projects on the farm.

    We are looking for strong, committed and motivated young people with practical skills like carpentry and gardening (permaculture) who will help us with the daily work in the house and garden and other important tasks.


    Our home is an old farmhouse with large gardens, so there are always things to improve, repair or add. Most work is outdoors in all kinds of weather and requires some physical strength, so if you usually have a desk job, our farm is probably not the best choice. You must be able to work hard and independently and take responsibility for the work you do. This means that you can also come up with ideas or find solutions to the challenges that may arise.

    Your tasks might include demolition and cleaning bricks, painting, woodwork, refinishing furniture, gardening/landscaping, construction projects, stone and cement work, remove waste, mow into the stable, repairing fences around our fields, cutting firewood, repair bicycles and garden machines, pick fruit and berries and cleaning. If you enjoy cooking, you are also welcome to prepare meals now and then :-).

    We expect you to meet timely for work.

    We want to have a one week trial on your stay. If everything works out for both of us you are welcome to stay as long as you like, if not we will ask you to find another host and give you a week to find another place to stay.

    We prefer workawayers who will stay with us for a minimum of 2 weeks.

    In the summer-period (may-sept) the accommodation for workawayers can also be a tent or caravan in the garden. I provide tent/caravan and sleeping bags etc.

    We try to plan it so we always have three workaways in the house as we need help with so many projects.

    We expect 5 hours help 5 days per week or 25 hours pr. Week. The work is usually from Monday to Friday and then you have Saturday and Sunday off. But sometimes we need help on the weekends and then you take time off on 2 weekdays instead. The work is mostly from 9-12 in the morning and again from 14-16 in the afternoon.

    If you come to stay from april-october we also need help at the campsite café making coffee, food undeserving the guests.
