  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple around 70 years. We have had our alternative lifestyle for many years.
    We live on a small farm, in the middle of Norway, not fare away from the town Steinkjer. The farm has a total of 300 acres. We have no animals.
    Most of the country is a wooded area, but we have an area of about 15 acres where we have a garden / park.
    The farmhouse on the farm is used for therapy, courses, meetings and accommodation.
    We live in our own private house nearby.
    Here are also other small houses, and we have a boathouse at the waterfront. We have a motor boat that you can use for trips in the fjord.
    We attach great importance to colors and their importance to us humans, which is why we have established our place (Color-pile).

    There is a lot of chores to do during the summer, and our summer is short ...
    Most of the help is gardening, so we prefer people with gardening experience. We also make a lot of firewood for upcoming winters. The houses need maintenance, so there is always paint projects to do.

  • Help

    Help

    As a workawayer by us we like you to be openminded, honest, have a good health, be practical and patient.
    Most of the help is outdoor in all types of weather.
    To help us can sometimes be physically demanding, while other times we need to be patient.
    And every summer we make firewood for coming winters.
    Painting houses, and other stuff, is something that belongs to the summer activities.
    Planting trees and bushes, and weeding, is always relevant. So it is a plus if you have experience of gardening.
    We want you to be with us for at least a couple of weeks, so we can get to know each other.
