  • Descrição


    Hello and welcome to Gransjö, a big unique house in the southern Swedish countryside, surrounded by beautiful nature, lakes and forests. I, who own the place, am 28 years old and some of my passions are animals, vegetable growing, sustainability, yoga, meditation, beer, old houses, old things, sewing, hand crafting and traditional carpentry. I live here along with 8 cats, a dog and four horses. All the animals are more or less rescues and my goal is to provide a safe and loving forever home for them. The house also contains of two separate apartments that are currently rented out.

    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.

    I study in another city so I am usually away during the weeks and home most weekends. I usually have one volunteer living here, who covers for me when I am in school. This will be like your own home :) Kind of like housesitting. I am looking for someone who loves animals and gardening and who is ok with spending a lot of time on their own at the farm. Most of the time it will only be you and the animals. (And the renters but in their own apartments).
    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 and preserving/cooking.

    -You need to be comfortable with your own company, fine with working a lot on your own and have a sense of responsibility.
    -Since you will be here mostly on your own, you need to be able to manage yourself and the household (like cooking for yourself and keeping the house nice and tidy)
    -You need to be a calm, friendly and animal-loving person, so that all the animals feels safe and loved <3
    -I am mainly looking for long term volunteers who wants to live here for at least 6 months or preferably even longer if everything goes well:)

    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

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    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 taking care of 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.

    A lot of the daily work will be outside mucking out, caring for the horses, gardening, mowing the lawn, walking the dog etc. And a lot of cuddles with the animals of course, whenever they feel like it.

  • Acomodação


    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 most days using what's available in the gardens/kitchen. I usually do grocery shopping every 1-2 weeks to provide everything needed so you won't have to do any shopping. All food is included, of course!

    In your time off you can enjoy hikes in the forest, have a glass of wine on the veranda or anything in between. Or why not go for a swim in the nearby lake. We also have a piano and lots of space for painting or other crafts and art forms. Here is basically no public transport.
