Crazy - some people would say. Leaving our house, belongings and worklife, as we have known it so far, behind. Nevertheless we have decided to take a leap of faith.
Who are we?
Steen - a great Dane, who likes a good laugh, enjoys working with his hands and plays the drums. A quick learner and a hard worker.
Lisa Mette - a mix of Danish and Dutch dna. Easy going, sociable, a quick learner but still not afraid of using power tools and getting muddy hands.
Kylja - a 13 year old Icelandic sheepdog, who is very gentle, loves being where we are and normally curls up to sleep nearby. A quick learner and loves football :-)
We are basically seeking to learn more about sustainable living, permaculture and community building as well as cultural exchange. We believe that volunteering would be a good way to gain experience, get to know people and see parts of the world, we have never been to.
In the summer of 2018 we volunteered at a permacultural farm at Svanholm in Denmark. Helping to build a straw bale house. We spent 12 days there, working hard with 9 other volunteers. It was fun, interesting and broadened our horizons in this field of work.
