  • Description


    We are a family with 2 kids (10+12y) and some small animals nearby the southern Funen archipelago. The kids visit the public school, Preben is an educated teacher staying at home and Heike is working evening shift in a nursery home. We want a simpel life centeret around our family and home with as small an income as possible. We are interested in topics such as ecology, sustainability, simple living, zero waste, non- shopping, politics in general and inviting you is a great chance of intercultural exchange without travelling ourselves. We work with rewildering our garden, renovation of our little house and the buildings on the ground. Preben is a freediver, Heike likes to photograph insects and plants.
    We eat whole-plant- food and feel rich because off a great choice of dumpster- food. Both Preben and me like to run and swim, which is great here: The area is flat and nearby the coast.

    We have a bike for you to get around. The bus to the towns are in walking distance and taking the bike on the bus is for free. We would be happy to be helpfuld

    Consider to visit us all summer and use the cottage as a base when going on holiday or to other WA.

    We live in a little traditionally build timberet house, that frequently needs to be repaired, painted, cleaned etc.

    We love (vegan) food, a good meal and perhaps be inspired by your way of cooking. We just prefer our kitchen to stay vegan. Whatever kitchenwork there always is lots of. The better we work together the nicer it will be.

    We have to dogs, geese and many small pets. Sometimes we will ask you to feed. There are always (simple) tasks as tidying, painting, cleaning, childcare, dogwalking, gardening, kitchenwork a.s.o. These task have priority. Other than that we have plantet a "forrest" in 2019, that constantly needs to be kept clean from weeds and nittels. Here we need lots of help from you, so good shoes and long workingclothes are neccessary.
    Apart from that we have bee hives.

    Often you will work together with one of os and sometimes on yourselfs. Depending on the tasks to be done. Sometimes we work hard and get really dirty and sweaty (eventually bring clothes for that. There are lots of nittles in the forrest), sometimes we are all easy.

    We usually make plans for the day in the morning, when the kids have left. In summer in the evening, when all tasks are done, we often like to cycle to the coast for a swim/ snorkeling. In summer the ferries to the nearby islands are for free. Sometimes we go there.

    We look forward to hear from you!

    Ourselves we go everywhere by bike and we have bikes for you, too. We will regularly make time to see the beautiful area of souther funen. Its just 5 km to the sea, 12km to the next bigger town. Bus and train nearby so you can explore on your own. We´d be happy to make some suggestions. The coast is great and there are many small islands nearby. Good possibilities for hiking and mountainbiking, too.
