  • Description


    We've renovated a big old green house and given it a new life, by hosting weddings and other parties. Growing vegetables in small scale, and taking care of plants and nature. Sharing our knowledge with others. We are developing new methods for a more natural and sustainable way of agriculture.
    This is a great place to stay. 7 minutes from Stavanger airport, 2 minutes to the center of Sola, 12 minutes to Stavanger, and 7 min to Sandnes, - if you travel by car. Our region is one of the most beautiful and visited in Norway, with old history to show, and breathtaking nature. Mentioning Pulpit Rock, Kjeragbolten, Lysefjorden, Florlitrappene, beautiful beaches and peaceful countryside nearby.

  • Help


    We need help with the garden and surrounding areas, both in- and outdoor. We are "cleaning up" the place, since parts of it has been neglected for a while. So handy-work, cleaning, organizing and making systems etc will be good.
    We also need an extra pair of hands (or two) in preparing for parties, - and as a waiter? People who are interested in nature, and to learn how to grow their own vegetables etc, will enjoy spending time here. We have our own gardner, who has hosted a radioprogram for 16 years about gardening and how the nature works. He is a great teacher.
    We have a big focus on building healthy eco-soil, and have many exciting test-projects.
    We will be able to pay a low wage in money, but a lot in excitements and knowhow.
    We are looking for people who like to be part of a team and love to see the value and difference their effort makes. If your interests match ours, you will gain more from your stay.

In the household we are a couple (56 and 62), but also other family members can come and stay for periodes. We are a social family, :) and will have most meals together.
