    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you are willing to get things done - then tell us what you want to learn - and we may be able to teach you that.
    We have resources to share.
    After work we celebrate and play.
    The farm is a wonderful place - everybody says, if the social aspect works.

    You can do EU funded ERASMUS+ volunteerships here, with paid travel and pocket money (if you are under 30). European Solidarity Corps.

    Always looking for skills in:
    - Building/carpentry
    - Someone that can handle a sewing machine.
    - Repair engines
    - Acoustic musicians
    - All season farmers that fits the visitor profile.

    - Do you know what LARP is?
    - Can you film and edit?
    - Do you know anything about off-grid electricity?

    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.

    Still reading? Good, most have probably stopped reading long ago and started looking for another farm.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This is the country side - not a city. This is rural. Close to nature. Sea and forest close by.
    Only people that enjoy nature and rural simple lifestyle should come here.
    If you desire clean clothing and a shower every day - this is not your place.
    This is an alternative small scale ecological farm project with many funky eco buildings going on.
    Easy access from Gothenburg, but its 5 km to the bus stop
    No smokers welcome.
    No TV
    No mobile phone in your pocket. We don´t want to see people staring into their mobiles.
    Wifi is bad, most of the time its down.
    We seldom eat meat.
    We are "environmentally motivated", that means we avoid certain food and luxuries.
