    Descripción

    We are a family of five. Martin is an ecophilosopher, writer, and researcher. Stine is an artist, yoga teacher, and sociologist. Kaia is eight, Abbe is six, and Bror is five. We have bought a gorgeous piece of land on the lush and green Nesodden peninsula in the inner Oslo Fjord. The property is near Bunnefjorden, the body of water connecting the peninsula to the mainland. A steep foot trail leads directly down to the fjord, where our small sailboat is anchored. We also organize a deep ecology festival, an annual, three-day salmon homecoming event on the Akerselva River in downtown Oslo. The festival is a hotbed for art, activism, research, and conversations on cultural metamorphosis.

    We are in the very early stages of building a small-scale eco-community on our property, with opportunities for self-sufficiency in energy, water, and food. At this earliest stage, we need help with these concrete chores:

    - build a wooden platform. The platform will double as a base for our large teepee and as a stage for a small amphitheater set right into the hillside.
    - build an outdoor kitchen
    - build an outdoor bathroom
    - stabilize a small, old cabin on the land to protect it from weather. The cabin will eventually be rebuilt; for now the simple but important task is to protect the remains from collapsing.
    - Around October / November we will also appreciate help concerning all organizational and practical aspects of our festival. The festival takes place every year on the first weekend in November. It is when the salmon return to spawn in our city.

    In addition, we have begun looking into how to arrive inside the place's particular vegetation with care and skill, so as to transform what needs to be transformed and leave alone what needs to be left alone. Some patches have stands of mature trees, including oak, ash, pine, and spruce. There are a few fruit trees. There is a lawn. We endeavor the place to grow not only into a family home, but a crossroads for regenerative culture. Our diverse works, engagements, and curiosities will make sure of that. At this early hour, we particularly invite one or two persons with carpenter skills, to help with some of the foundational work. Gardening skills are also welcome, though not quite as pressing. A driver's licence will be important. Our van will be available for relevant trips.

    If you are interested in co-creating in one of our emerging eco-art projects, please take contact. Our family is multilingual, having our roots, in part, in Norway, and in part further east and south in Europe. Try us. You are likely to fit right in.

    Some important practical notes: At this point, we are able to provide accomodation in a large teepee and/or in our sailing boat. We do not yet live on the land; we are fifteen minutes away on the same peninsula. Stine, being the project manager, will be in daily contact. We also recommend that guests provide their own food, in return contributing fewers hours.

    Still, we will be delighted to spend time together and to get to know you.

    Warmly,
    Stine & Martin

    At this early stage, guests can live in our 27-foot sailboat, which is a few minutes downhill from the property. Alternatively, guests can live directly on the property in a large and very cozy teepee.
