Hi there! With the wonderful help of our spring workawayers the garden is now blooming with all kinds of lovely plants...such a gift to be able to once again experience the wonder of a full growing season!
We are now presently looking for 1-2 workawayers who can stay 3-4 weeks during the months of September and October. If you´re into gardening, harvesting, berry and mushroom picking, landscaping, home and property maintenance, good food, good company, good vibrations, and unpredictable Swedish weather, then you will surely enjoy visiting with us... it´s always good to have people here who know how to both listen carefully to instructions/suggestions, as well as enjoy and value co-creation. Whatever your experience and skills, if our profile/lifestyle appeals to you, then you are welcome to contact us about visiting.
We are Nina (61) & Tim (65), loving partners who have been together, and lived on the same piece of land for 40 years. During this time we have raised 2 children, run 2 different organic vegetarian restaurants, as well as a healthcare business which included vegan meal preparation, mindfulness, meditation, and personal development through self inquiry....we are also grandparents to two wonderful small children!
We have a large family-size organic vegetable farm, including berries, flowers, spices and herbs.
Our place is a very beautiful and peaceful lakeside property, surrounded by a lot of woodlands. We are into our fourthyear as workaway hosts, so we are use to having people staying with us whom we have never met before. Meeting like-minded people from around the world who we can co-create, work, and live together with is something we have come to enjoy very much. We also enjoy playing music and are particularly interested in volunteers who share this interest as well!
To begin with, you would live in the small cabin, and we would prepare and eat meals together in the main house. How much time we spend together outside of doing tasks and the kitchen hours depends on what kind of chemistry develops between us. It is important to note that the time spent making meals together and keeping the kitchen tidy are not included in the 25 weekly working hours, since this is something we all need and do for each other.
We are use to having our own private time, so as a visitor you should also be prepared to spend some of your free time on your own. Generally, we suggest a stay of 3-4 weeks, with the possibility of an extention if it feels right for all of us. We also reserve the right to end a volunteers stay early in the case that things are not working out the way we had hoped.
Our main focus is the continual development of sustainable living, which includes how we relate to our body, mind, and spirit, as well as to the earth which nourishes and hosts us.
Since we get many requests, it is important for us to know that you have carefully read our profile and what it is that attracts you our way... we´d prefer a couple or two good friends, but even single volunteers are welcome to apply...we have wonderful reviews if you´d like to know more about the experience of previous workawayers...look forward to hearing from you!

Since both Tim and Nina speak English and Swedish fluently there will obviously be a language exchange. We promote a sustainable lifestyle that includes organic farming, creative building, and a variety of healthy lifestyle attitudes...all of which we´d love to share with our guests. We consider ourselves to be the fortunate caretakers of this wonderful property, and have plans to expand the living facilities in a way so that others can also live here and have the opportunity to appreciate what we have been so blessed with. We offer a family-style, collaborative, and supportive environment where guests are invited to explore and expand themselves as human beings. This is an opportunity to learn how to work, rest, and play in a relaxed and conscious fashion...promoting greater health for ourselves and the planet.

The primary focus is on the preparation, maintenance and care of the organic gardens which include a large variety of vegetables, herbs, berries, and flowers. However, this is a small farm and there is always plenty of other things needing attention like wood cutting and stacking, painting, landscaping, building repairs, cleaning, and so on.
The accommodation is a small cabin at the edge of the forest with 2 single beds, a wood-burning and electric heater...there is a nice porch with a great view of the property and lake, as well as internet! There is no toilet or kitchen in the cabin. There is an outdoor latrine and our guests are also welcome to use the bathrooms in the main house as needed. There is no kitchen in the cabin, as all meals are prepared and eaten in the main house. We are mainly vegan with a smaller amount of eggs and milk products.
This is a very beautiful and peaceful lakeside property...we have 3 canoes and a wooden rowboat for lake excursions. We have a good deck on the water for relaxation and swimming. There is also a wood-burning sauna right near the lake. There are some very nice country roads and forests for walking and biking. There is a small town 30 minutes away by car, and a larger town 45 minutes away. We usually make trips to one of these towns 1-2 times a week, they are also possible to reach by bus or train. We often have family and friends visiting with us, sometimes staying for days or weeks at a time, especially during the summer months.
