  • 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 environmental friendly methods.
    To held courses and retreats is another dream.
    I am a vegetarian, but I eat fish and seafood.

    Help

    I am grateful for help with outdoor chores, like gardening and wood preparation but also cleaning and organizing.
    But help with renovation is also preciated .
    I try to use environmental friendly methods in everything.
    Just now I need a person that have experience with construction and power tools.
    I work 66% nights as a nurse, that means that you have to work independently those days that I am sleeping.

    What else ...

    My farm is situated in a beautiful landscape with a lot of historical interesting places (Varnhem, Ekornavallen), 360 lakes and beautiful, protected nature areas. A big lake with thousands of cranes and other birds in the spring (Hornborgasjön) and nice walking paths. There are also a lot of art galleries around.
    Some years ago they made a popular film from this area, lot of the scenes are filmed close to my place, it’s called: Arn-the Knight Templar.
    There are a lot of wild cherry trees in the area and it’s so beautiful when they are blooming in May. (Google : vallevagen.se)
    There is a 2 km walk to the bus stop where there are busses to the surrounding cities, I also have some bicycles you can borrow.
