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.

I speak Swedish, norwegian, english and german and you can practice here. I like to learn others about ecological farming and healthy cooking. I am also interested in wild herbs and raw food.
I am grateful for help with outdoor tasks, like gardening and wood preparation but also cleaning and organizing.
But help with renovating projects is also preciated . Experience in using powertools is an advantage.
I try to use environmental friendly methods in everything.
I prefer volunteers with working experience, +20 years old.
I work 66% nights as a nurse, that means that you have to work independently those days that I am sleeping.
You will live in a modern guest room in the barn. If there is more than one volunteer you might share room.
Since I also rent out for online rentals, it’s a possibility that you have to sleep in my house those days it’s rented out.
I don’t have WiFi in the house yet, so I have to ask you bring your own.
We eat the meals together and take turns with the cooking and kitchen work.
My diet includes dairy products, gluten and sugar and I would like to know in advance if that is a problem for you.
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)
