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 with Eco Projects
As a worker you will benefit in many ways by being here. We will learn you about the Norwegian culture, history, get new friends and experience good times. We will show you some of the important and nice places in our region. Our work is important for us, and we will share information and knowledge with you when you stay here.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
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.
You will get a room in the house, and stay with the family. There is also another option, you might be able to stay in a micro-hut in the garden if you would prefer that. 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.
We can offer bikes to use if you want to get around. Do you want to travel further, there are easy access to train, bus and plane from our place. There are plenty of beautiful and historical places to see, both in the city of Stavanger, the islands and beaches nearby, some of Norway's most famous hikes like Prekestolen and Kjeragbolten, lakes and fjords where you can do kayaking, - and an old monastery to visit. And much more!
