We do permaculture growing of mainly perennial plants and trees and to sell. We can use help for all kind of things: Building, digging, weeding, harvesting, sowing, planting, fencing, preservation of food, composting, clearing wood etc. Irja is educated organic farmer (at Sogn Jord og Hagebruksskule) from Vågå in east Norway and Benjamin is a danish permaculturist with years of experience in forest gardening, trees and perennial vegetables. We have been wwoofing many places ourselves, so we hope we have a good idea of how to make a good wwoofing stay. We would like you to learn something and to learn something from you.
We own 1,7 hectares where we are establishing (and harvesting from) forest garden systems - this is taking shape on half of our land and already producing nuts, veggies and berries. We also work on smaller areas (garden size) with very high production per m2 through complicated polycultures.
At our place you are close to everything almost, 500 meters to sea, forests, mountains, 2,5 km to center of town, shop, eco cafè, library and swimming pool, NORSØK and NIBIO (national research facilities for organic farming).
We have several good rooms available for wwoofers and two bathrooms, so we should have space enough for you.
Help from wwoofers is useful all year round. We are a little family with one 3-year-old and one baby, so that's a big part of our daily life, evenings and weekends. We can not host smokers because of the babies.
Some of the work we do is quite physically hard, because we mainly use hand tools. A lot of the work in a plant nursery also requires a great deal of accuracy. We are working seriously to make a sustainable living and income from our farm, it's not an idyllic dream or hobby - but it's very meaningful! If you tell us a bit about yourself in your request, we'll try to plan for some work that matches your interests. :)
