  • Descripción


    Hello! I hope you are enjoying planning your next Workaway experience. :)

    My name is Carl Lindgren, called Calle, a Swedish-speaking Finn from Helsinki Finland.
    I am an actor and a cultural producer, who has worked within a lot of NGOs:s and traveled & lived around the world, now speaking, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, English, Spanish, Portuguese, and a bit of French and German.

    I practice yoga, some music, and gardening living a new life away from the city at the countryside. I am also a Yoga Instructor (Yoga Integral / Traditional) and I work with differently-abled people and do some journalism.I am a freelancer with a lot of dreams and projects. and I have also studied dialectic behavior therapy, music therapy, and services for people with substance abuse.

    My true passion is human contact and the paradoxicality of being a human and surviving the Finnish raw summer light and darkness of the winter with a lot of humor.

    Roxbäck "wellness dream farm" in Sipoonkorpi Natural Park ( My grandparents and family´s old farm)
    Roxbäck farm in Sotunki, Vantaa is only 20 km from the city center of Helsinki.

    Since I have no immediate family left nor children my dream is to establish an NGO / Foundation working at these places with yoga, agriculture, and wellness services for all kinds of people.

    At the moment we can work with different kinds of fun maintenance projects, also according to what you would like to do and learn:

    For example:
    In Summer / Autumn season
    DIY tasks and other maintenance projects like painting, building stuff etc
    Trimming bushes, cutting grass, taking care of the beach and taking care of the garden
    Chopping wood and cutting down some trees.

    If we are several people I also super much appreciate help in the kitchen, making food and some cleaning.

    We have usually worked from 9:30 - 13:30 ish (4 hours) with the workawayers Monday - Friday
    Lunch at 1.30 pm ish
    The rest of the day and weekends of course is free time. If someone is still super inspired to continue with something after lunch, sometimes we have also done some small tasks after lunch.

    Welcome to Sipoonkorpi in Sotunki.
