  • Description


    I have a small permaculture farm surrounded by beautiful nature. I am an activist myself in humanrights and climate change related issues. I do work teaching permaculture, making natural products, selling falafels at festivals, but mostly I do a lot of volunteering myself.

    My farm needs "intensive care" since I have just completed a very time taking 3 years project when my farm wasn't getting enough attention from me. There are structures needing to be taken down, repared and modified, garden and fencing need attention.

    RIGHT NOW you can help with:
    * some machines and a car needs fixing, I can't do that myself
    * fence needs to fixed
    * building traditional spruce fence
    * a lot of moving soil, manure, logs etc from place to place - proper workout ;)
    * planting trees
    * taking down damaged greenhouse

    Also if you are good with homepages I have a project that needs some it help.

    Our work is very variating. At the moment we are building the infrastructure for holding events in future. We live by the permaculture principles. We have experimental farm and animal sanctuary. We are also involved in communal work in permaculture center in Turku involving volunteer work and event organizing.
