We this year plan to have five Workawayers from 1 May to 4 June who can stay this whole period. The work includes many small carpenter repair tasks, small building projects, weeding in the garden, and other different farm work. Some of the tasks might be rather heavy, like moving stones and digging holes for fences. Since we have a lot of repairs and small construction projects like gates and shelters we prefer volunteers with experience in this field.
We live on a small farm on the island of Bornholm, in Denmark. We have a big organic vegetable and flower garden and animals, which include 3 horses, 3 pigs, 3 sheep, 2 cats, 7 ducks, a lot of chicken and 2 dogs. The farm is located close to the coast in a beautiful area.
We are used to gather a group of workawayers a few times every year since this setting works well for us (and the volunteers!) Accordingly, this means that we prefer persons who can join the group for the whole period that we make plans for.
The work here is to help with different garden projects, general maintenance, stone paths, carpentering, weeding, painting, repairing and other farm work, mostly outdoors and some of it might be rather heavy work.
You will probably meet some of our children, Astrid (32) Janus (29) Emma (29) Freja (26) Oskar (25) and Iris (23) during weekends and holidays.
We train our dogs, horses and mini pigs with clicker training (positive reinforcement) and we use horsemanship with our horses.
Finn works full time outside the farm, but Susan works part time during the week and takes time off in the workaway period.

Practical skills aquired from the many different tasks around the farm. A relaxed environment where you will feel at home in no time. It is also possible to borrow a car or bike from us to explore the island.

Most of the work is outside, mainly in the garden.
One of the jobs needed will be feeding the animals and different gardenwork.
You will also be a part of the daily work in the household, including dishwashing, cleaning ect.
One big room for three, two single room.
It may be possible to try to ride the horses, but as we ride differently to most riding schools you will only ride accompanied by someone who knows the horses - this is whether you have experience or not.
The name of the island is Bornholm (40.000 citizens) however the island is very popular during the summer. It is located in the Baltic sea and is closer to Sweden than to the rest of Denmark. It is the only place in Denmark with a rocky terrain and since the island is small you are never too far from the ocean (whether you like rocks, stone or sand beaches).
The farm is located right next to the ocean by "Teglkås", it is possible to swim from the coast. And there are hiking routes, for example to "Jon's Kapel".
