    LIFE IN A SMALL ECO VILLAGE IN SOUTHERN NORWAY
    Previously, for 12 years, we owned and ran a 9 acre organic permaculture farm in Hawaii. We had many woofers and interns during that time, exclusively a life enriching experience. Now our family of three live in our comfy straw bale house located adjacent to a small scale organic farm in southern Norway.
    We are involved in farm activities on some levels but are now renting an 8 hectare piece of land for a Non-profit Permaculture Project. A to of energy is channeled here. Our daughter Sophia (22), only at home during holidays, is now studying in Bergen. My wife Ingunn (48) work as a local doctor (general practitioner). My name is Robin (54) and work as a social worker with people born both deaf and blind, and I also teach Marshall Rosenbergs communication-model "NVC". We have many ongoing projects that you can get involved with. We speak english quite well, + little french but less german and Spanish. We would love to get to know you and practice life enriching communication. We hope to make for a wonderful exchange/experience and that we share meals and project time as much as is joyful for us all. We are yoga practitioners and we can exchange on this level as well. 😊

    A ECO VILLAGE LIFESTYLE.
    You will be exposed to a small Eco village in which 11 families enjoy their lives. Our house, being 1 of 4 straw bale buildings, are built to the highest standards. Our knowledge on ecological living could contribute to your learning. In winter, every Sunday we have movie night at our house. Neighbours come for popcorn and tea and we take turns in presenting our choice of film. Occasionally we gather for bonfire and music under the stars.
    LOCAL AND NATIONAL HISTORY
    The area is quite picturesque and has a historical heritage that predates the viking era. Walks in the area will show signs of how people lived as far back as 8000 years ago.
    NORWAY'S OLDEST CITY - TØNSBERG
    Driving 10 minutes by car you will find yourself in a buzzing tourist magnet of a costal town. The population of 50 000 people is more than doubled in summer months. Museums, medieval castle site, local markets and all the diversions a town can provide, you will find here.
    WORKSHOPS
    We hold permaculture and NVC communication workshops. You can attend when you find a topic that interests you.
    LEARN HOW TO WINDSURF
    During April-October there will be an opportunity to learn windsurfing, provided that the instructor has time and weather permits. It is nice to have a shift from farm-life once in a while.
    SKIING AND WINTER SPORTS
    There are cross-country ski-tracks right outside our door.
    Downhill opportunities a few hours away.

    CHORES - PROJECTS:
    1. THE LAND PROJECT. I am currently involved in the Norwegian Permaculture movement as the national coordinator. I also regularly host meetings for the local permaculture enthusiasts. The LAND project consists of 3 different permaculture demonstration sites that I hope WorkAway'ers will contribute to. L=learning, A=activity, N=network and D=demonstration. The farm gets around 300 visitors each week. My hope is to make a vivid display of Permaculture Ethics and Principles so as to inspire visitors. This involves greenhouse work, propagating plants, sales, planting trees (a forest garden) design, building the permaculture office and more. We would like to create an artistic installation as well. All the income from the Land Project will be funnelled towards its further development.
    2. THE PATHWAY. Our area is of historical significance that predates the viking era. A pathway that will lead farm visitors to the Permaculture site via educational-stations, is another project in the making. We will apply for a grant that will help us in this pursuit. Ideas and design-suggestions are very welcomed.
    3. THE PONDS. We are creating a multipurpose pond-system to serve both as our drinking water in severe droughts but mostly for watering the yard, aesthetics and swimming.
    4. STRAWBALE BUILDING. Our straw bale house needs some maintenance and additions. The clay plaster on the house next door needs maintenance as well.
    5. GARDENING. We have several vegetable gardens and greenhouses that need constant attention. This includes sowing, weeding, mulching, harvesting and preserving.
    6. HOUSEHOLD CHORES. Our mostly vegetarian cuisine would love inspiration from other parts of the world. Cleaning the house is also something very welcomed ... We have a cat.
    7. WE NEED HELP TO START OUR WEBPAGE. If you have experience with WordPress you could develop our web page into something informative and useful. Once your work-exchange hours are completed - this is where we offer paid work. We will make a priority to house people that are wiling to work with this.
    8. HELP OUT IN VARIOUS CHORES ON ADJACENT ORGANIC FARM. The WorkAway opportunity has developed into a joint effort with Holt Gård ( ) This picturesque and popular organic farm has a cafe', a workshop venue, a CSA ( community supported agriculture ) as well as a very diverse, small scale farming operation. Pigs, cows, horses, chickens, ducks, rabbits, peacocks and cats live there and are cared for by a wonderful and idealistic family. Vegetables, yoghurt, Ice Cream, eggs and more is produced for sale. When needed, WorkAway work-hours will be channeled to the diverse chores on the farm.
