  • Descrição


    In 2024, we would need volunteers mainly between April and July. Our main aim during summer season is to
    - build a big wooden terrace/pergola
    - make woodchips and firewood
    - clear and mark walking trails
    - clean the firewood shed and wood-burning sauna

    Please contact us for more information.

    We are a couple with a dog owning a small farm in the Finnish countryside in Vihti, within less than an hour drive from Helsinki. We have both been working in digital marketing business, but in our fifties we decided to change our life and bought a logged house in the edge of a forest close to the Hiidenvesi lake. As we have travelled a lot around the world, it would be lovely to in return get people from all over the world to visit us here in Finland.

We expect that you are ready to help us with different kind of projects in our farm, and are fit enough to do so.
