Together with my uncle I have bought a farm in Värmland in Sweden. The property is in a lovely spot, situated between two big lakes, with farmland and woods belonging to it. Some of the fields are today hired by a farmer in the neighbourhood. He grows wheat. On the rest of the area my uncle and I have created an Eco garden and we are on our way to produce an output of about two and a half tonnes ecological vegetables of different kinds. For the time being we have an excellent farm helper, but later on this season we would very much welcome anyone with some building or farming experience. Are you the one?
When not doing farming, I am a documentary filmmaker, author and journalist.
Help with Eco Projects
DIY and building projects
This will be an excellent opportunity to see an Eco garden constructed from scratch. Besides, learning how an experienced Eco-expert (my uncle) works with the plants and how he teaches people to become self sufficient. My uncle is also a yoga and meditation teacher, and a master in archery. The languages we speak are Swedish, Norwegian, English, German and a little French. We will also hold workshops in documentary filmmaking and storytelling during summer.
Tending the eco fields. Watering the plants. Weeding. Doing some general maintenance as we also will construct a new fruit- and berry garden and raise a green house.
A caravan with kitchen/living room, bed room with double and a toilet. The caravan is a five minute walk from the farm. Right next to the caravan you will find showers, laundry machine and dryer.
There are buses and trains close to the farm. In addition both my uncle and I have cars and bicycles. Transportation will not be a problem. There is a lovely town called Arvika close by. Arvika has lovely restaurants, cafés, cinema, museums, shops and a rich cultural life. Just outside Arvika you can hire kayaks og canoes. And both close to our farm and in Arvika there are great possibilities both for swimming and paddling.
