  • Description


    Hi! We are a family living on the countryside in the south of Sweden. We live in an old house with a fantastic garden. We grow vegetables and every summer we try to have a music event on out stage that we built. Me, Karin is working teaching gardening, self sufficiency, and cooking skills. I dance contactimprovisation and is very interested in building and renovating old houses. Max is a musician and like computergames and programming. He is studying to become a music teacher. We have two really smart and fun little children. The surroundings are great, with beautiful nature and a big community. It is easy to get here by train and bus from Malmö and Lund.

  • Help


    We mostly need help with different projekts in the garden. We grow vegetables and some flowers and trying to make the garden more cozy and nice to hang out in. We are also slowly renovating the house. I´m thinking of renovating windows this year. We are also collecting materials for building a sauna! Its also always nice to be more adults around the children. This year we want to build a greenhouse.

  • Accommodation


    We have a guesthouse that needs to be prepered for sleeping in. Its very spartan and is also right now a workshop and storage space. So, the most comfortable and privat way to stay here is in a tent. We can provide tent and som madrasses. Compost toilet outdoors and watertoilet in the house. In the house is also shower and kitchen. We cook and eat food together. We eat mostly vegetarian food.

    What else ...

    We are looking forward to having more people around as we have been living in collectives before we moved here. I, Karin really enjoy common projects and doing stuff together. As mentioned before there is beautiful nature around here, especially the national park at Söderåsen. And it is easy to go by train to Malmö.
