We need 4 volunteers
We are a Dutch couple in our sixties, grey-haired but full of energy and creativity!
My name is Roswitha, I live together with Fridus and our three lovely dogs named Ylva, Rävi and Björne, two cats and some chickens.
We are living in the beautiful nature in Dalarna.
During 13 years we have had a hotel and restaurant here, but because we are getting older we sold the hotel after all this years of hard working.
Our life is calmer now, we still live on this place and we have a mix of a lot of different things we do. We run a small organic restaurant which is only sometimes open and we have a little secondhand / handcraft shop. We restore furniture to give things a second life, we repair things, we make craft (sewing, carpentering) and art (painting). We make jams and marmalades and bake bread and cookies.
We try to have an ecological and sustainable lifestyle.
You can help us with outside work like woodcutting, making firewood, grass mowing, weeding. In wintertime, snow blowing.
You can help by harvesting fruits in autumn, cooking marmalades and juices, baking cookies and bread.
You can walk or bicycle with the dogs.
We have always projects going on in the maintenance of the buildings and renovation of old windows.
You can help us by the repairing things to the secondhand shop.
You can learn to help with the craftwork we do, Roswitha makes baskets and decorates wooden objects and Fridus makes small wooden furniture of used wood.
We use to look what kind of work you like to do and what you want to learn of us. Then we make a plan together.
Some periods of the year we (November - December, and July - August) we have a lot work to do within the restaurant.
You will live in a room inside our house or in a caravan with electricity. We have shared bathroom inside the house.
We will provide food for breakfast and lunch, and the evening meals we will have together
In case we need help with the Restaurant (when it is open), we can offer payment.
The period we can need that is mainly in the 6 weeks before Christmas.
