  • Description



    We are aprox thirteen adults and eleven kids that live together in a community. We have a vegetable garden, hens, ducks and are planning on getting bees. We have two big houses that we are building apartments in so that more people can join our community. We have a common kitchen and a food court where we eat meals all together three times a week. We have a meeting for everyone on Monday afternoons and we have a sharing circle for everyone on Wednesday evenings. We do fun stuff together and try to help eachother get on with our lives.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Since we are many people living here together there are many different people to get to know and to learn things from. If you are interested in garderning there is a lot to learn (from our mistakes hehe) and several people here have interesting building knowledge. We are living with a low budget so we make use of creative solutions.

  • Help


    We are looking for volunteers to help us in the garden in April and May.
    We would like to have several volunteers during this time, approximately four or five.

    Every morning from nine o'clock until twelve there will be work in the garden together with at least one of us communitu members. In the afternoon volunteers continue working two hours either with more garden work or else with work on some building project or with household work; helping out with the cooking, doing dishes, cleaning, taking care of the compost and if you are interested some kind of childcare.
