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.
We travelled for 8 months from september 2018 till May 2019 doing workaway and learning a lot on the way. We have been back in Denmark visiting and participating in different activities through out the summer. We are now ready for new adventures out there.
Carpentry, plastering, gardening, basic bricklaying.
