Always looking for skills in:

- Repair engines
- Acoustic musicians
- All season farmers that fits the visitor profile.

If you lack skills, but is highly motivated, we offer simpler activities. Work can be dirty, tiresome, boring, monotonous.
Don´t come here with any romantic ideas about farm life - better come with low expectations.
We try to welcome visitors with a dedicated interest in permaculture, transition, self sustainability, community and people that have experience and skills in these areas. Or people that are strong and like to sweat.
If you contact us we will ask you one straightforward question:
What are your skills? What experiences do you have?
Any skill in what ever area. Any passion you would like to share?
Who are you? Where will you be in five years time?
We like working with people that see themselves actually doing the same things as us in the future.
