  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple of people who have a dream about creating an eco village on our land!
    We are right now a group of 8 adults and 7 children involved in the project, but the group keeps evolving and we hope to be around 10+ families (+ individuals) living on the land as the project grows.

    Where most eco villages spend 2-5 years planning everything before buying land - we did the opposite! We just bought the land in an almost spontaneous way and now we have to figure out everything!

    The space is a 12 hectare piece of land in the forest on the Danish Island Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. It was built as a work camp in 1939, and has since been a boarding school for kids from Greenland and then a "production" school. It has been empty for around 10 years and left to severe neglect and vandalism. There is one very big building and several small ones. All of the buildings will need to be seriously renovated.

    We want to rebuild the houses with natural building materials, as local and sustainable as possible. We want to open the space for children and adults to spend time in nature and share workshops, food, music and creativity. We want to include many rooms and spaces for people to have a place to realise their dreams together with the community.

    We need many hands and hearts to realise this dream, and we hope that you want to take part!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Come and live in community in the middle of the wild forest and see how we realise our dream of living a simple life in the forest in close contact with the land and each other.

    We are still learning, but we hope to invite professionals to teach both you and us about natural building. As the progress moves on we will be able to teach you as we learn.
    We are very passionate about wild edibles and knowing the forest and are happy to share!
    We grow our garden inspired by permaculture and in harmony with the soil and plants and want to teach a general way of living close to and with nature.

  • Aide

    Aide

    We need a lot of different help. The main project is building the space and the buildings (especially the space for volunteers!), but we are also a living and growing community, and need help with everyday tasks like cooking and cleaning.

    The place still has many boring empty walls, so art projects and general beautification is needed!

    We have a group of wonderful kids who also needs attention - most of us do homeschooling and anything you could imagine teaching the children would be super valuable and appreciated! We have a garden that needs tending and watering and a forest full of berries and cherries and wild greens that needs harvesting and processing.

    We have many children and happily host families. We will find a solution if you have small children and are less able to work.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    As we are on the very very early stages of this project, we haven't yet build accommodation for volunteers. This we hope to do in the near future, maybe with your help!
    For now we can possibly provide a caravan, and definitely space for tents!

    We have compost toilets and a small communal kitchen.
    We cook communal meals once a day (early dinner around 16:45). We mostly eat vegan and vegetarian.

    Autres infos...

    We have a board in the communal kitchen where we put our names on the various tasks of the week (here you can fill out the blank spots and see what projects are going on!)
    Every saturday we have communal workday where everybody meet up and work on different communal projects together.

    As a volunteer you will have 2 days off a week (you choose) to explore the island, which has many treasures to offer! To mention a few there are sandy beaches with some of the worlds finest sand, to the dramatic cliff coasts in the north. All the coastal villages are very charming and almost all have a fish smokery where you can taste the traditional smoked fish from Bornholm.
    Bornholm is a holiday island, so the possibilities of what it offers are endless!
    Walking distance from the land is the great Almindingen forest (which we are inside) with Ekkodalen - a rift valley through the forest, and the Almindingen Bisons, which few of us has yet been able to spot!
    We strive to be able to provide bicycles to be able to explore the island further.

    GETTING TO BORNHOLM AND FRISKOVEN!
    From Denmark: there are cheap bus tickets from Copenhagen (centre or airport) to Bornholm, which takes you over Sweden and the ferry from Ystad to Rønne. There is also possibility to take a night ferry from Køge.

    There are ferries directly from Germany (Sassnitz) and Poland (Swinoujscie).

    From Sweden there is easy access with the Ferry from Ystad.

    There is a national airport on Bornholm too (Rønne) - the closest international airport is Malmö or Copenhagen.

    From Rønne on Bornholm you can take a bus to Åkirkeby Terminal. From there it's 4 km to Friskoven - there is no easy public transport all the way to the place, but we will be happy to pick you up by car in Åkirkeby!
