  • Descripción


    We are two neighbours living in an ecovillage on the island Orust in the swedish westcoast. There are 17 households in the ecovillage. Everyone owns their own house and garden, and share land for farming, some forest and community systems for taking care of cleaning the water and such. In the middle of the village we have a forestgarden, runned by a society. We have a lake close by for bathing och fishing. the two neighbours who will be your hosts are Marie, a french woman living in a cottage with her son 5 years old this year. And Annika, a swedish woman living i a tinyhouse with her daughter 6 years old this year.
    Marie has a lot of nice DIY building projects going on, and Annika has a lot of gardeningprojects. We use ecofriendly and creative methods such as buildning with clay, hempcrete, solarpanels, permaculture and similar. We are about to build a community ourdoor kitchen in the forestgarden. the ecovillage are also about to put down and old barn this summer, reusing the material building a new communityhouse on the same area. Together we have a lot of experience, education and knowlegde from these kind of things.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We have a big network here with people interested in caring for the environment, gardening, arts, culture, handicraft and building with sustainable material. You will get lots of chanses to learn about these fields. Because of corona we dont spend much time having dinners, parties or events. But normally our network are good at make nice culturestuff happen such as live musik, courses, workshops, dinners, guided gardentours, exhibitions and more.

    We have friends and neighbours also having volunteers so we'll arrange working days with them: everybody at the same place for one day, you get a lot of work done! And so you'll also meet other volunteers, it could be nice.
    Once a week, you'll work at Veronika's place: they are growing organic vegetables.

  • Alojamiento


    Since Marie and Annika are nextdoor neighbours, we will share the host responsibility. You will be sleeping in a tinyhouse with one bedroom in Annikas garden. there are one 160cm bed, that could be turned into a sofa daytime, and one sparebed 80cm.
    As you'll sometimes be on your own, we would prefer to host couple or friends travelling together (note that you'll have to share the bedroom). You're also welcomed if you're travelling with a kid.
    The tinyhouse has Wifi.
    You will use an outdoor toilet, and the kitchen at Maries place. Washingmachine and shower at Annikas place. Annika has two dogs behind a fence in the garden. You need to let her know in advance when you need to use the shower or washingmachine, otherwise the dogs will go crazy.
    You will have breakfast and meals at Maries place.
    We will all take turns in the kitchen cooking, wash up and clean and others housework. Marie will serve all kinds of food including meat.
    The days when you help Annika she will provide the meals at her place. Annika will serve vegetarian food and sometimes fish.
    If you have special foods just ask and we take it from there.

    We are both enjoying the nature and can show you some nice places and trails. Mostly we just go bathing in the lake (we have a sauna!!!) or sea in sparetime. We both have cars if you need a ride somewhere, and there are bikes to lend if you like. There are canoes to use also.

    Thanks to Johanna Fraenkel-Eidse for all the beautiful pictures on our profile.
