About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

For 2018 I have the volunteers I need. You are welcome to contact me in 2019 for a stay.
Keen on living on a smaller island Fejoe, Denmark close to nature, getting experience in gardening, growing ecological vegetables and medical herbs in sustainable ways? See a Keyhole mandala functioning and medical herbs in a Sun-Wheel.
Fejø is an island in the southern part of Denmark with 460 inhabitants. This island is quite special for our abilities to work together on various projects.
About me
I am a 76 years old woman, very vital and healthy, living on my own in a house in the countryside surrounded by the garden with a beautiful view to the sea. My main interest in life is gardening and spirituality. I am born with some extra psychic abilities which are very useful in practical life and clinical work. Some years ago I have started again playing the violin which was a childhood instrument. I do have to practice about two hours every day. I practise in my bedroom.
The Garden
Over the last 5 years helpers and I have gradually converted lawns to beds, where I can grow food. I have created a Key-hole mandala for intensive growth of vegetables. I also grow medical plants in a medicine wheel.
I have quite a lot of garden experience having had various gardens in my life and grown medical plants for almost 20 years. I have many books about herbs, gardening and more spiritual books. If you are interested in medical plants there are many possibilities to learn about them and I will guide you through your studies.
Food.
I am a vegetarian. I cook with lots of vegetables, beans, lentils, chicpeas, to ensure intake of protein.
The Clinic
I have a clinic in my home. I am certified as healer, herbalist, healing massage therapist, and in Acupuncture. Furthermore, I work with body-therapy and emotional release therapy.
The nature on Fejø
Fejø is a very pretty island with coasts everywhere. I live 500 meter from the best bathing beach with a bridge. We do have a local bus which has a low fee and can be called and I have an extra bike for woofers. We have many young travellers coming to the island, so you can find new friends and company here.
Your work
I expect you to have practical skills and experience and being able to work on your own, when the job is given and clarified. Working hours are 20-25 a week. You can be free during the weekend, if you so wish.
There will be weeding, making beds ready for the new season, sewing new plants and potting them up.. There will be moving plants to other beds, trimming trees and bushes, cutting lawn. I do not take more than 2 Woofers at a time. I also appreciate help in the house and cooking.
Accommodation
You will be sleeping upstairs where there are 2 rooms. A smaller one, where I early spring have new seedlings to grow in light and a bigger room for 2 persons.You are supplied with sheets and towels.
Food
I am a vegetarian. I live of vegetables from the garden or the island. I cook with butterbeans, lentils and chickpeas and make pâtés and other dishes with nuts and almonds. I use eggs for pâtés and cakes. You can get dairy products and I do keep some tinned Tuna and Mackerel for helpers. The fruit trees in the garden are small yet but usually some fruit is available on the island.
We do have a grocer with some organic organic products.
If you are on a special diet for various reasons you must expect to bring food for that or get what is available on the island.
