  • Description


    Hej. I am a Swiss-Indian nature lover. Most of the year I live in Switzerland and work as a teacher.
    Whenever possible I like to go to Sweden to my cottage and enjoy nature and work in and around the house. There is always something to do! So if it works out time wise, you are most welcome to help out for a few days in Sweden. I want to start a permaculture garden as soon as possible. There is always wood to chop, walls that need painting or things that need to be fixed in or around the house. The house is located in Värmland by one of the many lakes there. So after a few hours of help a day you can go for a swim or fishing or go for a walk in the woods. You do need a car to get to the place!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I live in Switzerland and speak English and German. A bit of French and Italian and learning Swedish. I love to meet people from different backgrounds and countries and cultures. There is a lot to learn about plants & nature and I am happy to share this knowledge. I love to cook and bake and am happy to share my recipes. Talking and working and being outdoors together can be a great chance for us to learn from eachother.

    In the months from May to October there is a stuga that you can use. It has two single beds and electricity. The kitchen and bathroom you will share with us. You can have 3 meals a day with us as long as you don't have any allergies and are easy going about a well balanced diet.
    The rest of the year, during the winter you can use the stuga too with a little electric heater. This could be a bit cold. I plan to get the little guesthouse fixed and insulated soon.
