  • Description


    We're Ankie and Romed, a couple in the mid-60's.
    In Oct. 2020 we bought a property in the countryside, 20 km south-west of Holbaek, Zealand, Denmark. (40 minutes train ride from Copenhagen)
    Here have founded a small and happy collective with some younger people. We find it all very rewarding to have a collective that spans over several generations. It gives us new perspectives and valuable experiences.

    Our buildings need some substantial renovation. We have lots of resources, but not much money. We have tools and can do all of the work, but it's still a big challenge.

    Much of the year, we have a full house. We live here with 8 people, and we also get many visitors.
    But especially in the summer months, some of us are travelling, and in these periods, we would love to have volunteers who are willing to help with various renovation projects, construction work but also organic gardening, and be part of our small community.
    Ideally, you already have some experience with woodwork, building work or organic gardening/permaculture. If not, you definitely will get it here ;-)

    We are also part of an association that owns a big wooden sail ship, currently under renovation in Holbaek. This renovation will go on until summer 23. All work is done by volunteers, and if you are interested in wooden ships, you are welcome to have a look at our website,

    There are various rooms available at various times. We live by Danish standards a very simple country life. For now there's only one small bathroom that we all share. If you expect luxury, better look somewhere else.

    In your spare time you can explore the beautiful surroundings, with hills, great beech and oak woods, lakes and excellent bathing beaches along the coast. Copenhagen is only 40 minutes away by train. You can use one of our bicycles.
    Holbæk has a beautiful wooden ship harbour, but it's only a small provincial town. Still the surroundings are beautiful and the people friendly.
    Roskilde is only 30 minutes away and Copenhagen 45. There's a train station with hourly trains to Copenhagen 4 km from our place and most of the time someone will be able to give you a lift and pick you up from there. Or you borrow one of our bicycles.
