    Due to Health issues I do not take more Work awayers this year

    I am a 78 year old woman very fresh and agile. I was educated as a nurse when young and a Primary School teacher.
    As young I lived 4 years in Geneva and 4 years in Dorchester, England.
    I have 3 grown up children and 7 grandchildren. Since young, I have been interested in Alternative therapies and have kept educating.
    Getting as very young an Arthritis diagnoses and later a serious Auto-immune disease diagnosis, I decided not to use allopathic medicine, but only herbal medicine. Now I treat myself with Acupuncture, when having health issues. I believe in cooperating with nature Spirits and Creation.
    I like youngster from all over the world coming to exchange work here and learn about sustainability, ecology, crowing herbs and vegetables. I house only 2 travellors at a time

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Fejoe, the island in South Denmark I live on attracts many helpers from all over the world.
    We are a community with many social activities and many young people and young families. We have community gatherings, where we all bring food and often the young volunteers will play music. The host families work together in order to create a good stay for our volunteers. We great each other when driving around and have "open doors" in many families.
    I share my knowledge about Medical Plants. Is the volunteer keen on learning about them, we plan together for their study. I have very many herbal books in English.
    I also share about my Spiritual work and how people can approach that.
