  • Description


    We are a mum and a 6 year old girl, which im home(un)schooling /worldschooling. We are into sustainability and community living. As much as possible we try to tread gently on the earth and work in harmony and communicate with compassionn. I am also a clown and performing artist and are looking for ways to have some time to work on projects.

    A few things to be aware of - we are living in Lifjorden, in the municipality of Hyllestad which is 2,5 hrs north of Bergen. It is rural for sure- beautiful hiking opportunities to the mountains around and also a fjord to look out on and a little boat that we can use in the summer time...

    It is good if you love nature and being in nature.. that you enjoy the beauty of birdsong and wind in the trees.. and west-coast Norway unpredictable weather - it is important that you are comfortable with your own company, so we know you have a great stay!

    The main contribution that we would like at this stage is child-care, housework and maybe some maintenance and work on the land.. And a likeminded friend :)

    My daughter is fluent in english and has a social energy. We are here until xmas this year and would love some help. My parents live in the neighbour house.

    We could accept a family coming too..

    So if this sounds like it will suit you please get in touch!!

    We would like help around the garden, some maintenance, some child-care, some cooking and things around the house. in general we will look after you if you look after us :) We would love if you have experience in any of these areas... We practice a gentle, attachment philosophy with our daughter - and are aiming that everyone can have their needs met - we just need to communicate clearly. This goes both ways!
