    Descripción

    Welcome to the beautiful Swedish countryside, a welcoming family and a creative permaculture mini community. The household consists of my kids (Liam age 11 and Talila age 13), my boyfriend Egemen and me, Mariel. We also have two cats and some hens. Right next door we have my brother and his wife on their permaculture homestead where a lot of creative, inspiring things are happening all the time. My brother and his wife usually have a volunteer or two staying with them, as well as animals: a dog, a cat, and chickens. They host tiny-house building workshops and other sustainable-living related workshops.

    The house we live in is an old train station house, built in the early 1900's. As we moved in July 2021 and it had been left untended for a long time, it is in need of a lot of work. It has a lot of potential to be very charming and unique, with a lot of love, hard work and paint. We are also aiming to get some permaculture gardens started on the property. Maybe have a goat or two to help prepare the land.

    My daughter Talila is a gentle soul who likes animals, dancing, singing, gymnastics, gardening and outdoor adventures. My son Liam is a sweet boy who likes being with his friends, biking, Playstation, and can be coaxed into enjoying other activities as well ;-)

    As a family we like to go on outdoor adventures: swimming, hiking, canoeing, camping, skiing, skating, etc. On rainy days we like to sauna, play cards and board games, or just enjoy a good movie or TV show together.

    I work part time as a mental health counsellor where I combine solution-oriented talks with breath- and body work and meditation. I am also a textile artist and teach felting classes. I enjoy dancing, hiking, running, meditating, and other creative activities.

    Egemen is from Turkey and has been in Sweden for 4 years now. He is interested in permaculture, building, gardening, animals of all kinds, cooking and baking.

    I have a lot of previous experience as a volunteer host together with my ex-husband, with many positive reviews.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    My boyfriend Egemen is from Turkey and passionate about Turkish cuisine. He is happy to share his skills and share stories from his homeland. We speak English at home, as I have partially grown up in the US and my kids' father is from the US. My kids are used to having volunteers in the house as we hosted together for many years, with very positive reviews.

    The closeness to my brother's perma-culture farm is also a great social and experiential opportunity! In the summer, there will be lots of swimming in nearby lakes and nature experiences in general. You will also learn a lot about fixing up old wooden houses in an eco-friendly and economic manner.

    Our newly purchased station house needs a lot of love. Most of the volunteer hours will involve home improvement tasks as well as outdoor jobs, gardening and household work. It is good if you already have some basic experience of manual labor. It will be both inside and outside work, and you will need to be okay with climbing ladders.

    You will either be in a tiny house on the property or in the house with us. The kids are here every other week. You will have your own bedroom, or share it with another volunteer if there are two of you travelling together.

    We all help out with cooking, washing up and keeping the house tidy. The cooking and washing up is not included in the help hours. Vegetarians can easily be accommodated. Vegans may need to cook a bit of their own food on the side.

    On your time off you are welcome to explore the area on your own, or perhaps with another volunteer from my brother's farm. You are welcome to borrow the car when it is available, or a bike. There is plenty to explore in the area, like 4 nature preservation areas just minutes away, different nature trails, historical sites, small towns and cities, etc. Previous volunteers have enjoyed biking to lakes in the area and watching the sunrise or sunset, hiking. Or of course hang out with us.

    Always check with me before bringing a pet and we will see if it seems like it will work out with the pets that are already here.
