    Description

    Hello friends!

    We are a small family in south-east Finland looking for good company and little help. Luumäki is a pretty small village and the nearest cities are Lappeenranta and Kouvola.

    There are four members in our family: me (Inkeri), my husband Jussi and our children Väinö and Sylvi, aged 4 and 1. We are running a farm with highland cattle and our current project is to renovate an old house. There are two cats in the farm.

    Values we prefer:

    * love and connection to nature
    * love and connection with people and animals
    * sustainable values
    * helping each others

    We would love your company and little help especially with:

    * renovating an old house
    * gardening
    * babysitting
    * cooking meals
    * chopping wood

    We can offer you:

    * loving and caring small community
    * connection to nature
    * fun company
    * teaching about sustainable farming
    * great food

    We would love a family/families to join our family, but also singles and couples are more than welcome.

    I (Inkeri) like to do yoga, go in the forest, SAUNA, good food, gardening, have fun with family and friends.

    I went to Australia years ago with Workaway and I think it was an amazing experience. Now I think I have something to offer to people around the world. This is my first time as an host and I'm truely hopeing to meet people and have fun together. I also need some practice with my english.

    Your stay with us:

    * you can stay night in our house few kilometres from our farm
    * you have your own room and toilet
    * in the backyard you can do relaxing activities such as barbeque, traditional finnish sauna and bath
    * you need a driving lisence to get to our farm and the old house (you can borrow our car)
    * working/helping hours from 4 to 5
    * you get your own space (we like it too)

    You are most welcome, hope to see You in the summer!
