  • Description


    Hi workawayers! :)

    We are a happy, easy-going couple living in beautiful Småland 45 km from Växjö. Come stay with us to experience a lovely Swedish nature. You can enjoy our beautiful bike trails (we have some old bicycles) take a walk in the beautiful forests surrounding us and pick wild blueberries, or appreciate some quiet time to yourself meditating and admiring the nature. If you’re lucky, you might see wild animals (maybe even a moose or two). You can also go swimming in the lake. If you are here in mid-June, you will experience a true Swedish midsummer. This is an ideal opportunity for a person who is looking for a peaceful and quiet stay.
    Our village is located far away from large cities, among forests. Connection and road is good. The nearest grocery store is in Lenhovda - 8 km.
    Now we are looking for someone who can help us with the garden for 1-2 weeks

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As much as 80 per cent of the municipality consists of forests and lakes. So..It is a municipality "made for" nature experiences and there are many nature reserves to visit. You can fishing ride horse or bike.
    When you visit the Municipality of Uppvidinge, you will also be in the Kingdom of Crystal.
    There is now an interesting mix of big glassworks such as Kosta and many small glassworks studios that take inspiration from each other. You can find unique pieces in a nice setting.

    We are looking for volunteers who can help us work on our house and garden. This involves some painting , normal housework etc
    We plan to dig and plant trees in the garden, so physical work suitable rather for a strong person.
    There is also simple painting and some job for girls:)
    In August we also need help with blueberry picking.
    Maybe my mother will be here - she is 82 years old and she is very nice. Sometimes we ask you to take a walk with her

    It’s really important to us that you are happy with your stay and that we are happy with your work, that’s why we value honesty and an open dialogue to improve both ways. We are hoping to make new friends, learn about a new culture and teach about our country and life in Sweden.
    We prefer smiling, easygoing, self-motivated and reliable person.

    Looking forward to hearing from you and hopefully also meeting YOU in Sweden.
