    Descrição

    Hello. I am Nicola. We seek your help to pick apples during the harvest season ( mid September - early November). My family and I have moved to an apple farm in a beautiful place, beside the sea and a fjord near Aarhus Denmark. The 5 ha organic farm has 500 apple and some pear trees. It has been cared for by the same family for three generations and now we are its caretakers. The land is teaching us as we work with it. Nick is a professor of archaeology at the university here and I am an artist. We have three children. We moved to Denmark from South Africa three years ago and started to live on this farm last year. We would value help on the farm, to pick and store apples during September and October. We do not have a business with the apples yet, but do not want to waste them. Last year we gave many to a young project initiative that made cider and sold them at the roadside stall. We understand that it will take time to learn about the apples before any other initiatives can start. We would like to offer walking seminars on climate change and sustainable heritage (Nick) and land/body movement workshops (Nicola) as part of our exchange if this should interest volunteers.

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    There is a separate guest house on the farm with three bedrooms. We will provide fresh homemade bread and fruit and invite you to join us for a warm meal each day. The meal will most likely be lunch as we sleep early, our children need to wake early to catch the bus by 7am.
    There is good wifi in the house, desk space and sitting space for your own work and comfort. There is also seating area in the greenhouse with a wood fire stove. The volunteer house is old school. It was built more than 100 years ago. There is trusted hot water for showers. The pressure though, does not reach the kitchen well so you will usually need to boil a kettle in the kitchen for washing up. The washing machine is in the main house so a laundry load can be done there and hung on the washing line.

    The farm is close to a beautiful small harbour. Here there is a fish and chip shop, the best in Denmark we believe. There are buses to Aarhus during the week and other transport options on weekends. We don't have a car...life is quite simple. We have farm bicycles you can use during your stay as well as paddle boards and a little rowing boat. Aarhus is the second biggest city in Denmark, and is 20 kms away. It hosts art galleries, botanic gardens, a farmers market, cosy coffee shops and a brilliant library. Now, as I write it is summer and the sun lingers in its passage. There is quiet in the orchard. Yesterday a hedgehog slept in the sun near the barn door. This morning a deer picked her way through the lower orchard. The fog from the fjord peeled away and I am thankful for another day among trees.
