  • Description


    We are an international (American-Polish and 4/5 Swedish (at least Ina paper:) family of five living on the outskirts of lush forest of National Park Söderåsen. Shmuel is a vegan, vegetarian, raw cook running his catering and summer caffe downstairs from where we live. Kasza is a doula and a yoga teacher with newly discovered passion for gardening (there might be some veggies if slugs will not overrun us) and bread baking (there will be sourdough bread). Nuria (known as Nuria-Sznuria) is a trilingual strong willed 3,5 year old with love for book reading and story telling (in a mixture of Polish-Swedish and English). Meira (MeiraShmeira) is 13 month old little athlete, passionate about climbing and biting. Efraim (Cappuccino mushmush) is her little twin brother who charms everyone with his ever present smile and determination in getting into trouble.

  • Help


    Shmuel will be working on his summer cafe project this summer and Kasza would love some help and company with the kids. Would be great to find someone who has a driving license so we can discover Skåne together. Polish speaking person could be great inspiration for Nuria in her bumpy journey of learning Kaszas mother tongue.
