    For many of you it may be difficult to come in these crazy times. However, we have managed to get in workawayers from EU countries as late as November, and we can provide quarantine on our property, with your own cabin etc. see more info below.
    Also, as we work with herbal preparation and energy medicine, we provide a safe space for health.

    Family based mini-ecovillage. Three generations, working together with like-minded neighbours with spiritual orientation. All is tiny but developed with our own hands: garden terraces, log cabins, animal houses (chickens, ducks, rabbits, a dog and a cat) - and first of all: the bees! Our courses for sustainable beecare are known in the country.
    At the same time we have a number of digital projects: product design and webdesign for our homemade preparations, newsletters and social media activities, photo and video documentation etc. We are creative minds and we love to see others blossom in their creativity - so come along with your art projects!

    In short: We think very globally and are very widely connected - but in our daily work we practice the small steps of "living the good life"...

    more specifics:

    >> At any time:
    - building, maintenance, repair
    - Design work, Webdesign, Computer support, marketing through the web and social media, help with finding pictures and design elements for websites, facebook etc – a good playground for creative minds!
    - Computer wizards warmly welcome (graphic design, webdesign, database etc)
    - Skilled carpenters always welcome.

    --- Working in small group of max 3
    --- Housing in individual cabins

    > We need to count on your engagement and flexibility - due to work peaks, timelines and weather conditions – while you can count on us when it comes to learning resources and inspiring new concepts.

    ! Be aware that this is not a real farm. No big scale farmland with grains and the like. In a way we are all training for bigger projects to come (ecovillage spiritual farming community) - and in the meantime we are working as intensely as possible with the little exquisite gem of a garden-forest-lake-landscape.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    Most of our friends and visitors like to stroll around in the forests, visit the waterfall, mountainbike, swim or kayak in the lake (resp. go skating and skiing in the winter). But on a day off, also a visit to Oslo (30 minutes by bus or car) is an easy option.
