Spring cleaning, indoors and outdoors. Welcome work aways. MAY and JUNE Helping with preparing the main farm house for summer holiday letting, making the outside nice, feeding goats, chickens and cats. Need to be physically fit and self going. :)
We are a family of 4, Olav 51, Anette 43, Nicoline 7 and Helje 5. We live on a farm in Southern Norway in a village called Engesland. Olav work as a professor in mathematics, Anette stays at home, and the girls go to school and nursery. The farm is situated in peaceful surrondings, and the nature around it is very nice. There is f ex a whole lake for fishing and swimming almost completely to yourself, nice walks and a rich bird life. There is one hour drive to Kristiansand, Arendal, Grimstad which all are nice towns with all you need, and 30 minutes to a bigger village Evje, with most things you need. There is little public transport( one bus in the morning at 7am weekdays, one back at 3pm weekedays), but the possibility to have a lift with us. There is a small shop for supplies in the village, 5 km away from the farm.
I, Anette, am very interested in Astrology ( and also would like to learn/excercise more yoga), so workawayers with a good knowlegde and interest of that are very welcome to come to our farm

If you love peace and quiet you'll love it here. There is some sport activities on in the village, once or twice a week. Things such as concerts does happen occassionaly, but not in walking distance and not on a regular basis. But in the towns there is plenty of cafes, shopping and cultural events going on. But again, there is not much public transport here, so if you need other things than nature, food and work for entertainment then we are not the right choice :)
