    Description

    My passion is building and designing little buildings in the nature. A long-time dream is creating a Japanese style garden on my land. So, everyone who´s interested in the above and wants to help, is welcome.

    What kind of people am I looking for:

    I am looking for people who want to learn new things related to building, gardening, landscape art, and even farming, life in the countryside and/or people who are enthusiastic about physical work. I offer various kinds of work and if you don´t like or can´t do one thing, you can do another thing. But the main thing is that you DO something.

    I need people who can really get something done.

    In exchange I offer a bed in the house or in the forest cabin (if it´s available), good food (sometimes quite strange food also, but always good) three times a day, some home-made wine, and day-trips by car if you are here longer.

    More information:

    The place is next to the forest and there is a lake nearby where it´s possible to go fishing. Walks in the forest, picking berries (June, July), picking mushrooms in the Autumn, exploring places of interest and towns, villages and cities nearby is a part of the experience. Sadly, also mosquitoes are a part of the experience from June until late August.

    Preferred lenght of stay is 1-3 weeks, but of course you can stay longer if you like it here. So, if you still think you want to come, send me a message.

    What will you be doing?

    It could be gardening, building, making firewood, or even a bit of farming. It´s never a problem to find stuff to do. Cutting grass is a weekly job during the summer. Cooking something good could also be a thing to do (but only if you´re good at it!) :)
