    We are a young couple living on an apple orchid (7000 trees) with our 3,5-y old boy, 2 dogs and 2 Arabian horses. Occasionally we can host volunteers to help with apple orchid tasks, stable work and gardening. The farm is located by the sea, about 180 km west of Helsinki.

    !!! RIGHT NOW !!! we search volunteers for the time period 3-9 September in central Helsinki (so this time not at the farm we live) to help out arranging a fair about circular economy. As a volunteer you would together with young people from over 10 other countries learn about sustainable production/consumptions, and in cooperation with organisations/companies on the field of circular economy run a 1-day (7. Sept) small scale fair in central Helsinki. Volunteers should preferably in the age 18-30. Expect a lot of fun in international surrounding :D

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The location itself offers calm landscape, hiking in the forests and rowing a small boat.

    The area is beautiful and there are many interesting sites to visit. Notice that this is a true rural area. The local grocery store and bus stop is 1,5 km away, from where buses depart to the nearby villages and the cities Turku, Salo and Helsinki, but only a few times a day.
