Each of us occupy a part of the land where we build our homes and tent to our gardens.
    We were working a lot of years, picking fruit in Danemark and France, to make the money to buy a land to build a dream and living together in harmony with nature and building our homes by eco-building.

    So this year we try something new we planted 1 hectare of physalis, the super fruit. Watching the plantation grow, we realize that we need people to weeding rigth now, and we need people to help us pick the fruit in august, September and October. we also need help for taking care of organic garden and collect wood for winter time.
