Located in a small, rural village in the forests, we we are trying to establish a self-sufficient, ecovillage, indigenous concept based around a farm where we can live and thrive with Nature as our foundation and then to share this with others to take out into the world. Our farm is 5 Ha and consists of a couple of fields, little ski slope, two barns and plenty of potential that we need help realising.
Alexander is a former 20 year London banker with deep experience of sustainability, renewable energy and the corporate world, who has now changed life direction to be a Wim Hof Instructor and to establish a self-sufficient existance for the family. Catherine is a certified, Nutritional therapist who is focused on helping people be their best selves using Natural food and nutrition. She is a gifted forager and artist as well. We have two sons, 7 and 9, who are growing up in the natural and wild world around Borgvattnet.

Staying with us and helping us realise our vision will leave a lasting legacy that will follow you back to wherever you come from. We are looking to give people experiences, skills, memories, friendships and connections that will help us all re-establish the global ecosystem of humans in Nature. It will help people realise how little they really need to live a purposeful, fulfilling and fun life and how technology should be an enabler and not the foundation. We come from urban backgrounds and only recently discovered living rurally, but instantly realised that it is the solution to many of the worlds problems... moving people out of synthetic and polluted cities back into natural and health boosting villages.
Jamtland, the area of Northern Sweden we live in, is filled with history from Viking times, is fully a vast areas of Nature, is close enough to connections to get to the city or Stockholm if you want / need to and is filled with mostly nice people. Staying with us will also enable you to learn about what we know from our life experiences and we would love to learn from you. Please do not come to stay with us if you are not comfortable sharing your thoughts, opinions and views and are not willing to hear and explore others.
We are looking for people who are willing to help invest in a future that keeps on giving. Finding joy from traditional ways, skills and traditions are a must and, if you have these skills as well, a great bonus. We need help establishing and tending a no till permaculture garden, renovating and reinvigorating farm buildings, developing a concept that can perpetuate the sharing and learning of skills based at our 5ha farm, but with outreach across the village of Borgvattnet and beyond. We will also be building sustainable infrastructure to test a closed loop model of living which regenerates Nature and creates an abundance "Garden of Eden" environment where there is time to grow creatively, artistically, musically, consciously and beyond.

We have a variety of accommodations options, but the base accommodation is your own bed in a lovely house with indoor plumbing and kitchen. It is very characterful, but there are also options to camp or to stay in quirky small cabins. We will look to share one meal a day together and then leave it to you to cook for yourself as you see fit. We have two young children and will still maintain our family unit in the morning at least. There will be opportunities to eat from the garden that you will help tend, source food from the local organic food network, local producers and of course if you so choose the "evil" supermarket, which we are trying to increasingly avoid.
We can provide you with sheets for the beds and towels, but will leave the responsibility for keeping them washed to you.
The area has endless opportunities for fishing, swimming, hiking, camping, cycling, etc. There is the option to occassionally borrow a car subject to covering fuel costs and making a small contribution and there is much to see within a few hours drive. Depending on when you are here there are also local festivals in Ostersund and local area.

There is 4G reception in the village that is suitable for video conferencing and most general uses. If a fibre connection is required for specific purposes, we have a relationship with a co-working space that has this for a fee in Ostersund which is 75 min away and we travel to about once a week.
There is a space suitable for anything up to a medium sized campervan.
We have chickens and a male border collie. We would expect any owner to ensure that the animal is child friendly and is cleaned up after appropriately.
