  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 3-6 members,depending on how many of our children is home from studying..living in the Norwegian woods, 30 min outside of Oslo. We have different projects that we are working on and could need help with; an organic garden and some building projects, like a chicken-house, storage house, and the restoring of an old barn.
    Experience with building is essential, and a creative mind, since we mostly use recycled materials for our buildings and garden projects.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Since we are very close to both nature and the capital, free-times can be spent in nature, hiking, and visiting cultural arenas in and around Oslo. We are ecological living oriented, and know much about living of the land and foraging for herbs and foods.Physical and psychological health is of great concern, as we run a school teaching these topics.
    We are well travelled, and speak many languages.
