    About our place
    Our place is a small home in the forest. We bought the place in 2012 and lived there for 5 years before having to give up and move away beacause of difficult circumstances . Last year, 2021, was a big deal for us, because we are finally moved back to Lunnaberg to build a tiny house to live in permanently!

    There is both chaos and beauty at our place. Chaos coming from a bit of a break down a few of years ago, that left Lunnaberg in a rather broken down state of being. The beauty comes from the wonderful place, the beautiful old trees, the peaceful energy and the feeling of a place full of life and potential. There is an old timber frame cottage from 1821 that has seen its better days. Our intention is to return to Lunnaberg and rebuilding the place into a new home for us. All the time in accordance with nature and the spirit of the place. There is a start of a food forest and vegetable garden, which will expand in the future.

    Accomodation
    The accomodation is in tents which we provide, during the summer months. In the tents there are camping beds with a proper matress etc. In early spring and late autumn accomodation is in a cozy caravan with a fireplace.
    There is also another caravan which we all share, as a place to cook and hang out, and to keep warm if the wheather is bad. On the farm there is electricity, cold water and an outdoor compost toilet. There is a very simple outdoor shower. There is also a swiming lake 10 minutes walk away. There is wifi. We are aiming for 5 volunteers at the same time during the summer, and 1-2 volonteers in spring and autumn. You will have access to a washing machine to do your laundry.

    Most of the cooking is done outdoors over the fire or on our portable electric stove. We all help and take turns doing the cooking. We will eat a joined meal during the day. In the evening we might want to spend some alone time with our family. On those nights you tend to your own cooking together with the other volonters (we provide food of course). Lunnaberg is a vegan place (although of course you are welcome what ever you eat :) ).

    The work

    There are two focus areas; eco buildning and gardening/food forest.

    Our mail goals this year is to keep building our tiny house! Last year we bulit most of the structure and outside walls and roof. This years focus will be mainly buildning the inside, with wood fibre insulation, clay paint walls, building a staircase, installing a fire place etc.
    We aim at having about 3-5 volonteers at a time during summer, and we welcome you who think it would be fun to learn about building and eco construction. The work will be quite intense and hard, but at the same time we think it is important to have fun, both while working and to take breaks to see the surroundings or just hang out and relax.

    The house will be built in ecological materials, on a fairly tight budget with a mix of new and second hand materials.

    This year we would also like to welcome 1 volonteer who would like to focus on gardening and preferably stay for a longer period of time (2-4 months, although shorter time is ok too). There is already a food forest started, and a permaculture design under progress. We also want to start a veggie garden. You will be working quite independently. But you will not be alone :) All the gardening work is planned together with us and we all help each other out when needed, and you are of course part of the rest of the group with meals and hanging out together.
    This is perfect for you who like to work on your own but still be part of the group, and want to learn more about permaculte, food forests, plants and gardning.

    There is also the posibility to be creative, and if we and you have the energy for it we might build an outdoor fire-heated bathtub, a garden shower, or continue creating our outdoor kitchen. We are very happy for you to bring new ideas into the place! We are beginners at what we do, learning as we go along. We are happy to share with you what we know, and keep learning together.
    We ask that you work approximately 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    Insurance
    We ask that you take responsibility for your own insurance to cover illness, injuries etc while in Sweden.

    About us
    We are a family of two adults, two children (aged 9 and 5), one dog and two cats. We are kind and happy people. We are artists in the areas of music, photography, poetry and dancing. We love nature and gardening and natural buildning.
    We really enjoy meeting people from around the world, and sharing our space and life for a short time. Every volonteer that has spent time at our place has left an impression and made our world a little bit wider. We are amazed and so grateful at how cool and magical it can be to connect in this way. And of course, getting hands on help with projects is fantastic. We always try to make the work inspirational and learning for the volonteers.

    The area around our place
    Close to our place, there are lovely forests and a swimming lake. The nature is beautiful and peaceful, and there is plenty of time to hang around in the wild. 10 km away there is the small but interesting and lively village Uddebo. In Uddebo, there are a lof poeple living with interests and projects in arts, ecological buildning, comunal gardening, cultural events etc. We are happy to show you around in Uddebo during your stay. The nearest town with a super market etc is Svenljunga, 8 km away. We can help you get around by bike or by getting a lift in our car etc.
