  • Description

    Description

    We moved in with our extended family and are working to establish the "village that went missing". We want to produce food for the local community and show that a sustainable life is possible 💚

    I am Signe, 33 (your main host) permaculturist and unschooler.

    I live with my ex husband, our 2 children, my parents, my brother and his girlfriend + a good friend. In time we would like another family to live here, but for now we need to get settled.
    We have 3 dogs, 12 hens and we're planning on more livestock in the future.

    We bought and moved in to an old school, so the is quite a lot of maintenance and we hope to find volunteers that can help out with that.
    Outside your get to learn plenty of permaculture and we hope you'll take it with you wherever you go from here💚

    For relaxation we enjoy boardgames, music, nature walks, good food and dinner conversation.

    We need you to speak a functional English. Otherwise we will not get to know eachother and that's really important to us.

    Our oldest son is 9 and he really likes to practice his English along with everything else. The younger one love to play with everyone who crosses his path, even is there is no shared language.
    The point is, liking children is quite a big deal if you come here
