  • Description


    Hello and welcome to Gransjö, a big unique house in the southern Swedish countryside, surrounded by beautiful nature, lakes and forests. We are looking for 1-2 volunteers for the autumn/winter time - preferably long term.

    Some of our passions are animals, vegetable growing, sustainability, yoga, meditation, beer, old houses, old things, sewing, hand crafting, traditional carpentry, cold and warm swims.

    We live here along with plenty of cats, two dogs and five horses. All the animals are more or less rescues and the goal is to provide a safe and loving forever home for them.

    As a way to live more sustainable (and because it's like conditioner for your soul) we have a big organic vegetable garden where we grow a lot of the food we are eating, working on being self sufficient on vegetables all year round. It's such a joy harvesting home grown, high quality food and making it into delicious meals.

    In spring, summer and autumn a lot of the work consists of labours such as animal care (mucking out, walking the dog, feeding all the animals) and loads of garden work like sowing, planting, weeding, chopping firewood, mowing the lawn, harvesting and preserving all of the food. In winter it is basically the same, except less garden work and more making fire in the wood boiler and shoveling snow. The work consists of a lot of physical labour so you need to be in quite good shape 💪

    I study in another city so I am usually away during the weeks and home every other weekend. Then there is Angelica who is also living in the house, renting a room. I usually have one volunteer living here, who covers for me when I am in school (monday-friday). This will be like your own home - more like housesitting. :) I am looking for one or two volunteers who loves animals and gardening and who is ok with spending a lot of time on their own at the farm.

    The dog, Kiara, is a rescue dog originally from Spain and she can still be a bit insecure with new people so it is very important that you are calm and sensitive to her language. It is also a big plus if you have some experience in horse care and/or gardening.

    -You need to be comfortable with your own company, fine with working a lot on your own and have a sense of responsibility.
    -You need to be able to manage yourself in the household (like cooking for and cleaning up after yourself) and being able to live and get along with other people
    -You need to be a calm, friendly and animal-loving person, so that all the animals feels safe and loved <3

    I hope this sounds interesting! If it does, please send me a message where you describe yourself and your interests and experiences, and step two will be having a call/videocall to see if we get good vibes. Looking forward to hearing from you!
    Cheers <3

    Here you will take part of the nice and quiet life close to nature. You will get insight in this animal friendly, close to nature lifestyle as well as getting some experience in organic vegetable growing and caring for an old building. You have the chance to learn more about caring for the animals and learning about their natural behavior if interested. I believe in a simple life, appreciating the small things and caring about animals, nature, the planet and - not to forget - yourself.
    The surrounding area is beautiful with the forest straight outside the window and lots of small lakes nearby. It is also interesting from a cultural herritage perspective, as this is the homeland of Astrid Lindgren and many of the characters in her books. Astrid Lindgrens Värld is located only 45 minutes away. The nearest town Gamleby is a nice summer town with an old square and nice second hand shops. There is a cozy small village only a few kilometers from the house with a small store, outdoor gym, sauna and beach.

    As a workawayer you will stay in the main house in your own bedroom with a bed and a desk. You will share toilet, kitchen and living areas.
    Regarding food, you will cook for yourself using what's available in the gardens/kitchen (only plant-based). I usually do the grocery shopping to provide everything needed.
