When I bought this little piece of forest with my wife (teacher) and settled with our five children 20 years ago, I started to develop gardens for production of vegetables organically. My wife died 6 years ago of ALS and dementia - I took care of her at home untill the day before she died. It was a challenging time, but I am satisfied because I had a personal connection with her and after all we had 5 children together. A few of my work experiences are nurse assistant, farming and builder. I also learned to repair my own car (Citroen 2CV,xantia and DS ) helping a skilled master. I think that is the reason why I never liked to work as a traditional teacher even if I got the education. My five children (2 boys and 3 girls) are living in CPH, Odense, Helsinki and Aarhus.
Help with Eco Projects

Through all my life I have been exploring how to establish good relations with people I worked with or people I met by chance. Exploring all aspects of life with my guests is my intention.
Learn to establish a vegetable garden.
The work is mainly taking care of vegetable production on 150 squaremeters raised beds.Production of firewood for own use is also part of my work when the weather is not too hot or the rain is pouring down.
My small jungle is so filled with opportunities to develop ideas to improve it as an eco platform for living.
Acommodation is on the first floor in the main house with bathroom and kitchen. My private room is in a building close to the house (5 meters between the entrances). Food is free, organic or biodynamic. All my food has been free of animal protein, latest year also glutenfree and after 4 years it has stopped development of rheumatoid arthritis, but you can have additional food like fish, meat and eggs as long as its organic ( I dont buy non organic) . Exchange of experience about food is an important reason for me to have visitors.
If you want to explore this part of Denmark on your own there is a busstop 2 km. away to go to Frederikshavn or Brønderslev with a train to Aalborg. When you arrive I will pick you up at the trainstation in Aalborg/ Brønderslev or Aalborg airport. If you have an idea of a project - wood cutting, photo or sewing I would be happy to assist. I have a very good Bernina sewing machine and some top quality Nikkormat cameras from the sixties and seventies with some special lenses. I take my guests to the beach and other special places in this part of DK all year round.
