    UPDATE for the summer of 2024:

    We have a cancellation for the first period, write us if you can come very soon and stay until 15th July. If you are on the waiting list and you have not received a message from me, write me again 😊🙏


    - We are opening for workawayers for the summer of 2024 in two different time periods (only write us if you can stay one of the exact time periods mentioned/or both):

    27th May - 15th July 2024 - Due to a cancellation we have one spot open this period
    21st July - 1st Sept 2024 - Waiting list

    You should have an interest in vegan cooking, as healthy wholesome plantbased food is something we are all passionate about so you will use a lot of time in the kitchen/foraging in the forest/doing dishes. You also need to have respect for nature and all the beautiful other beings that live on our land(snakes and spider being some of them), not to mention be ok with a VERY basic 'off grid' lifestyle. Whenever you are not helping out (morning or evening) you can join the yoga and other activities.

    Vegan Wizard and Coordinator (Internship/Trainee) POSITION FILLED

    - We are also looking for someone that are passionate about vegan cooking that want to take on the responsibility as volunteer coordinator and kitchen vegan main wizard chef for the whole two periods that we are welcoming volunteers to our place in the summer (only write if you can stay both periods of time). You dont need any experience, except for having spent time passionatly cooking in your own home, genuine interest to learn and efficiency in the kitchen. You should be ok with sharing your love for plant based food as you will teach all the volunteers their way around the kitchen. You will be given all the training needed, this is a good start for someone that would like a future/career in plant based cooking.


    We welcome you to our yoga and sustainable/regenerative lifestyle learning space. After years of traveling and volunteering ourselves we have bought our own piece of land in Flatdal in Norway, created to explore different practices of environmental conscious living, recreational activities in nature and a space for yoga retreats. Disconnect to Reconnect! We have a holistic approach towards sustainability, perceiving it as a lifestyle and a belief system integrating all aspects of life. Our aim is to go beyond sustainable living; to be regenerative.

    We are completely off grid, growing parts of our own food and using principles of permaculture to create a little paradise. This also mean that the standard is alot lower then what the average westerner are used to, there is no grid power or water, we have solar power in some areas of the property, composting toilets (that you will empty at least once during your stay), NO WIFI and we are pumping water from a river near by, so no running water. You will be outside the full duration of your stay. We are surrounded by untouched nature, with all the other beings sharing the space with us, this means that you will encounter spiders, other insects and an occasional snake. We are 100% plantbased(VEGAN) as we strive to live with nature, as sustainable as possible. We ask everyone that stays with us to respect this and not bring anything non plant based to our place.

    We believe learning is best achieved through hands on experiences. We want to share what we know as well as learning from others that are interested in a regenerative lifestyle. It will be a continuous learning and growing journey for us as well as for visitors. Parts of the year we are exploring and creating together with Workawayers and other parts of the year we are offering nature experiences, hiking as well as yoga retreats. Our aim with the time spent together with Workawayers from all over the world is to create knowledgeable ambassadors for how to live a happy, healthy life in coherence in with nature.

    About us
    This is a dream that has grown and taken shape the last couple of years while traveling, growing and learning around our beautiful planet. We have ourselves worked many places around the world as Workawayers. Myself (Marita) and my husband Sabin are the founders and we are both very passionate about nature conservation and sustainable living. After traveling the world for years, working with environmental causes, teaching yoga and learning from people of all paths of life, the dream is to create a space close to nature for people to learn about sustainable living. We want to share knowledge with anyone who wants to start the path towards a more sustainable lifestyle. Any measures, small or big, makes a difference in the world.

    Marita grew up in Sandefjord, Norway, but has for the last 15 years been conducting research, studying, traveling and working around the world. Marita has a master’s degree in sustainable development. She has 1400 hours advanced yoga teacher training from India, as well as a variety of courses in Ayurveda, meditation, pranayama etc. She has been teaching yoga across the world since 2014 and working with permaculture and plant-based food together with her husband Sabin. She is now combining her biggest passions in life; sustainable living, yoga and environmental awareness.

    Sabin grew up in Nepal. He studied IT at university, but soon realised that he was searching for a life with more meaning, peace, and mindfulness, connected to nature. He built his own guesthouse and restaurant in Pokhara (the main hub for starting the Annapurna Circuit), and while he was running his guesthouse, he discovered yoga and the amazing peace and challenge that is found in the Himalayas. He completed his mountain guide licence in 2018 and has since then been running trekking/yoga retreats parts of the year with Marita. He is a certified yoga teacher as well as very passionate about veganism.

  • Ajuda


    The help we need will differ according to the time of year. We are only in our little home in Norway half of the year, April - October, and the different months offer different tasks. We are continuously working on the garden, trying to expand little by little, working with permaculture principles. There is normally some construction work going on as well as developing new ideas for the property. We are using wood from our own land for creating so there is alot of physically hard work. The times we have Workawayers we need help in the daily chores, cooking for everyone and general cleaning (be prepared for alot of dishes as we are normally many people living together and everyone has to do their days of dishes!) and maintenance. If someone has skills in photography/social media/marketing/website building etc. we need help in all of our online presence as well.

  • Acomodação


    You will be staying in shared glamping tent with four beds in each bell tent (shared between male and female). You are in the full duration of your staying OUTSIDE, surrounded by nature and breathtaking views, but also hard weather, cold nights and all the challenges that follows living outside. Breakfast is simple self service - oats and fruit while lunch and dinner are meals shared in a family/community setting where we cook together or provide ingredients for you to cook your own meals. All the meals are wholesome, plantbased and organic as far as possible. Sometimes there will be the possibility to join yoga class in the morning for the workawayers. When we have retreats there is the possibility to join the activities in the retreat outside of the working hours.

    Algo mais...

    The area around is full of activities for every nature lover. There are many hikes in the surrounding mountains, short or several days ones. Forest walks, swimming in the nearby river, visiting lakes in the area or maybe just chilling in Hammock enjoying the view. Flatdal(the small village nearby) is known among artists so there is several outdoor art installations and some galleries near by.
