  • Description

    Description

    I am a woman who decided to live a more sustainable and fulfilling life, so 2013 was the year I sold my apartment in Gothenburg and bought this small, ecological farm in a beautiful district in Skaraborg, close to Varnhem.

    I am interested in sustainible living, spirituality and personal development. I try to grow vegetables, fruit and berries in a permacultural way and I am still learning.
    I like to renovate with natural and traditional methods. I am dreaming about a small community here where people can live and thrive.
    To held courses and retreats is another dream.
    I am a vegetarian, but I eat fish and seafood.

    Right now I am looking for somebody with building skills to help me with the renovating project.
    Later I would need help with outdoor chores, like gardening and wood preparation but also cleaning and organizing.
    I try to use environmental friendly methods in everything.

    Accommodation

    You will live in a renovated room in the barn, separate from my house. If there are more than 1 voluntar you will have to share room. There is a compost toilet and a zink but you have to get water from outside my house.
    You can have shower and wash your clothes in my home.
    In the spring/summer of 2020 there will be water and draining system installed in the barn, with shower and water toilet.
    We eat the meals together and take turns with the cooking and kitchen work.
