I am 63/f. and a former academic librarian with additional education in organic farming. Furthermore, I managed an Erasmus program and I know the fun it can be working abroad.
I’m Swiss-Danish origin and speak Swiss, Danish, German, English, and a little French. I bought this farm in Denmark in August 2021. I’m designing a garden (permaculture) and I’m going to plant a forest in autumn 2022. This and other works are waiting to be done. I would like to welcome and invite Workawayers to work with me. I use EM (Effective Microorganism Prof. Higa) for the soil. You can get to know EM with me. In addition, we can talk about organic farming or I can teach you a few Danish words 😊.
Isn’t it essential in life, that we create memories, that we create memorial moments and experiences? I will recognize and respect your personality and meet you with interest in your person and your experiences. During your stay it should be a peaceful and harmonious togetherness.
The house is from 1900 and has an astonishing view over the Fjord. It's a every rural and quiet area. You can occupy the entire 1st floor (steep stairs). My bedroom is on the ground floor.
There is an old cat (Lucy,18) in house and I have a bee hive since August 2022. More animals will join me in October 2022 (former caged hens).

Southern Denmark is a historically interesting area. I live in a small village 4 km from the nearest supermarket. Nearby there is Brickwork Museum, War Memorial Dyböl (), Graasten castle and an old windmill from 1744. The landscape is gently hilly and there are two official beaches, but you might also jump into the water where you like to. An 84 km long hiking trail (gendarme trail) passes close to the house. There is a bicycle ferry and many beautiful cycle paths. Nearest major town: Sonderborg (13 km).
Garden has been neglected in recent years, so there is maintenance tasks. In summer: watering the garden, preparing to plant the forest. Laying out a flower bed for the bees. Remove fence wire. Mow lawn and grass.
House: Emptying rooms for rebuilding. Loosen wallpaper. Cleaning. Rip out the carpet. Demolition .
Barn: Emptying for rebuilding. Moving things out. Demolition.
