    Description

    Hi, we are Inger and Marcel. Two travellers who settled down in Jamtland, a beutiful area close to Östersund in the middle/north of Sweden. We are starting up a small organic farm. So far we´ve got hens and bees, we grow vegetables on a small scale and generally need help with work in greenhouse and outside cultivation, carpentry, farmwork of all kinds, painting, watering, weeding, harvesting etc. We also make silver and leather handicraft in our workshop at the farm. Our area has a lot to offer in your free time. Lots of forrest and water. Fishing, canoeing, freecamping, biking, picking berries and mushrooms if in season. Look forward to hearing from enthustiastic, natureloveing people.

    At the moment I hurt my leg, and beeing in a open cast, it´s kind of hard to be as efficient as I (Inger) need to be this time of year. Urgently need help in the garden and with painting. I´m making the oldfashion eggoil tempera paint with earth pigments, so you can aslo learn this tecnique. Beekeeping is something you can learn a bit about here. Also a bit of cooking and cleaning is expected. Primarily were looking for volonteers to stay for atleast three weeks or more.

    Warm greatings from Inger & Marcel
