I have a small farm park in the heart of Finland. We are starting the 3rd business summer in 2019 and there's still a lot to build! Here isn't much to do during the winter, so I am looking volunteers for spring & summer 2019.
We have a pack of reindeers ( 9 now), lots of birds: chickens, ducks, geese, guinea fowl, peacocks, pheasants. Rabbits, cats and dogs and goats.
NOTICE: The map showst totally wrong location to our place. We are not up in the north close to swedish border. We are in the middle of Finland!
You will learn some finnish language, if you like 😊you will learn how to take care of many animals. You can enjoy Finnish countryside and learn about our culture.
I need help to build places for the animals: fences, chicken coops etc. I also need help making flower beds and cleaning the farm buildings. I really hope you know how to use at least hammer and nails! :-P
There is one big bed for 1-2 persons in the house. It is behind courtains but there is no own room. We are using same bathroom. There is also a sauna in other building. In summertime there is possibility to sleep in an old storehouse.
We are living 25 kilometres from the closest small city, Pieksämäki and 80 kilometres of a bigger city, Kuopio. Here is no bus connections, but we go to the town many times during the week, so getting to see other people and shops is not impossible!😀
We have travelled a lot with motorcycles and volunteering is familiar to us. We like to see new people and learn about other cultures. We speak english and german - at least my hubbie is good in german, I understand better than speak. But english is ok for both of us!
There are 2 adults in our family, no children.
