Welcome to join our family community and the development of our collectively owned land. We have started bringing this old farm back to life again after decades of abandonment. It’s a very exciting process with endless possibilities and freedom to try out, make experiments and learn. At the moment the circumstances here are very basic and it is also our conscious choice to live very simply and close to the land. This place is for you if you enjoy a do-it-yourself attitude, have an adventurous spirit and don’t require big comforts as found in the city. We are at a biking distance (3km) from a village with all basic services.
We are five adults and 5-7 children – all of them under nine years old. We have three nationalities (Finnish, Swedish and Dutch) and our common language is English. We've got self-built tiny houses, a small cottage with several small outdoor buildings, a 50m2 common house with wood heating and wood stove, an outdoor kitchen, a big vegetable garden, a self dug small pond and a creek running through the land, a lake nearby and forest around us.
Some special interests found in our group are democratic schooling/ free schools, social tools and emotional work such as co-counseling and Way of the Circle, ecovillages and intentional communities, environmental activism, painting with natural pigments, music, visual arts, improvisation, horticulture, permaculture, forest gardens, food fermentations, youth work, sustainability education, massage, wilderness & primitive skills/ rewilding, , Werbeck singing... We have also started a Transition Initiative in our nearby town, aiming to strengthen the local community and local economy, particularly the production and local market of organic foods.

A wood heated house or a summer room. You'd be staying in a space of your own, a little apart from other dwellings. It might be a good idea to come with a friend instead of coming alone, so you don't get lonely in the evenings :) You may also bring your own tent, if you like.
Karjalohja is a countryside town about 1h car drive from Helsinki to the west. We live at 4 km from the village with all basic services, a shop, a bar with music gigs, bus connections and a village house with lots of activities. It’s possible to make day/weekend trips to cities like Turku and Helsinki, as well as other smaller cities around. The touristic village Fiskars is at 15km from us and might be worth a visit. There are lots of possibilities for doing nature trips around here, including sleeping out at public lean-to’s, rowing boat on the lake or renting a canoe. This area has a high concentration of ”alternative minded” people, so you’ll have lots of chances to meet nice people and visit places similar to ours where you’ll see for example green building and permaculture in action.
