    Dear Workawayers, end of 2022 and throughout 2023 we've started a location with permaculture and a plan to create tiny/eco houses for rental or sale. After a year with loads of activities we will continue this year(2024) with continuing our permacultrue.
    we are a family of four with two children of 16 and 18 years old.
    This year will will continue the work in our garden and building two greenhouses of which one should act as a winter greenhouse. Besides this there are a few things ready for refurbishing.

    just a short introduction about us as a family and the location where we are located. We are a family with two boys with a sense of humour, a serious outlook on life and enjoying the things around us. As a family we have broad interests (walking/cycling/swimming/photography/history/health/music etc.) and seek our pursuits outdoors as well as indoors. We think it is important to live in balance with nature around us and that is how we want to shape the current location. We want to include the workawayer in our family and therefore working together on the projects as described below. In the free hours, the workawayer can decide for himself how he/she spends his/her time. we like to brainstorm about life, the world. In the Netherlands we worked in technology (he) and in care (she) and in our free time we were active in sports, language lessons and South American dance. We think it would be good to take steps in this as well. We speak English, German, Dutch, Spanish(he). The area where we ended up in Västra Götaland in the vicinity of Gullspang. Here we bought a former farm with some land and forest.

    The intention is to make ourselves self-sufficient by growing food through permaculture and we also want to build tiny houses for rental on the site, but also for sale. When it comes to permaculture, we think of biodiversity on a small scale. In the next stage, I/we want to focus on making ourselves self-sufficient in the field of energy. The area is very suitable for horse lovers. We are a stone's throw from Lake Vanern and Lake Skagern. The famous Göta Canal is 15 minutes by car from here. about 18 km by bike through the forest :-). In short, a water and wooded area with many opportunities for nature lovers and of course people who want to help in permaculture and the initial renovation of a so-called stuga. In short, we want to create a location here where people want to enjoy nature in addition to working in the open air.

    We are looking for "creative" people who like to release their energy in gardening (permaculture). Growing / preserving herbs or finding them in nature is also an activity. In addition, there are people who can do odd jobs (new construction and renovation of cabins or tiny houses). People who are not afraid of a challenge and find the unknown interesting to discover will feel at home here. Helping in the design of our ideal (self-sufficient life and in balance with nature) is sufficient for us.

    Het leren van een andere taal van het land van de workawayer is altijd mooi. Taaluitwisseling vice versa vind ik mooi maar ook de uitwisseling van de culturele gewoontes van de workawayer vinden wij interessant.
