    ************************************************
    Welcome to our place on earth: our farm close to Örebro, two hours west of Stockholm. We are two value driven, middleaged, individuals with a vivid compass for sustainable development. Our farm (7 hectare) is our place on earth since 2015. Our vision and plan is to live a good life here, where our needs will be met whilst navigating within the planetary boundaries. We are on our way to transform the farm to regenerative agriculture, enabling and encouraging biodiversity, circular flows, permaculture, perennial farming etc. The day we are leaving Tellus, we aim to leave our farm in a much healthier condition than it was at our arrival back in 2015.

    The other animals on the farm are: nine cuddly sheep, a bunch of geese, ducks, hens, a few sweet honey bee colonies, a magnificent cat with masterskills in hunting and last but not least an energetic and herd-oriented pumi dog.

    We are trained within the field of sustainable development, with specific competence in integrating the dimensions of ecological, social and economic sustainability. One of us works as a sustainability strategist (100 %) with the municipality as employer, focusing on the implementation of the UN Sustaineble Development Goals Agenda 2030, the SDGs. One of us is retiree. Outside paid work also involved in the transition network as course leader. Outside paid work almost all of our energy goes to the farm. To take care of ourselfes we do yoga, walks in the forest, bicycling, kayaking and fill up ur batteries in concerts or at cafés meeting friends.

    Hébergement

    Your accomodation is either our tiny house (22 m2) or our one-room studio, 35 m² (shared with another volunteer). Beds and sofa for hanging out. Both accomodations have electricity, but no water or sewer (that is: no kitchen, toilette or shower inside the accomodations). A small kitchen in a nearby building is yours to use and take care of. Your bathroom (wc, shower and sink) is in our house (not shared with us, we have our own). In order to have a circular nutrition cycle we also use a compost toilette. Laundry- and WiFi facilities available. The courtyard environment is concentrated, with all buildings close to each other. There is also a sauna that you can enjoy.

    You arrange your own meals with groceries that we supply. Food is vegetarian.

    We are not overly strict when it comes to alcohol but we do not allow excessive consumption. Smoking is prohibited on our farm.

    Our farm is easy accessible: buses takes you right into our regional capital Örebro (160 000 inhabitants) within 25 minutes (15 rides daily weekdays, a handful during weekends). From our regional capital you can go by train or bus to Stockholm (many times a day, the ride takes about two hours). Also Gothenburg is reached by train, city to city in three hours. Train to Oslo takes five hours.

    Surroundings of the farm (walking distance): Our home is situated on the countryside, in a small village. The surrounding area is diverse in biotopes, has a meandering river suitable for recreation, walks, bath, or stay overnight in a well-kept shelter. Nice walking areas. Rich in birds, deers and elks. Forest close by. The farm has beautiful peaceful spaces where one can rest, meditate or do some yoga. Lovely neigbours, caring community. A bunch of good transition network-friends close by.

    Within 20-25 km (easily accessible by bus): 1) Our regional capital Örebro (155 000 inhabitants). Summer of 2024 will the outdoor art biennal Open art take place. Restaurants, concerts, theater, cinema, aqualand, county museum, outdoor- and herritage areas, pharmacies and hospital, nightlife and shops. The town has recently been awarded town centre of the year, most beautiful municipal park as well as best environmental municipality in Sweden. () 2) Two picturesque small-towns: Nora () and Lindesberg () both very well worth visiting, with lakeside town centres.
    3) Kilsbergen, a low mountain range great for outdoor life, with semi-wilderness, nature reserves, hiking and mountainbike trails, shelters and cabins. Lots of information, maps etc available at several websites.

    Process prior to your visit at our farm:
    We want to be able to accept volunteers with accurate matching. To ensure this we look forward to receive an application from you. We want you to specify and include: your experiences, if you have tried Workaway/volunteering earlier and experiences from that, experiences or skills/talents that can be helpful in the work, what languages do you speak, why do you want to come here, etc. We will also have a video-meeting.

    Once you are accepted we need to stay in contact. If you do not respond to the answer we write to you we will cancel the agreement after one week - we do not want to deny other volunteers to come if it is not necessary. So check this site for answers if you request to come to our farm. We also want you to send us a phone number so we can keep in contact with each other.

    As we are striving to be climate neutral we´d love to have our volunteers traveling here by train.

    Welcome!
