About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We, Anders and Elena, live at the north-west coast of Norway. We are not so young as we think we are, so we have realized that we need help with several things on our property, such as gardening, wood-chopping, maintenance, clearing-up and so on. We have an unknown number of hens and roosters, and two very nice cats; Bagheera and Luna.
You need to be a good worker, a little bit strong and speak good English. Drugs is banned! Wine or beer is ok.
Nice if you want to learn Norwegian. We are quite layedback and flexible. Like to sit outside by the fire or in the grillcabin when the mosquitos destroy our evenings.
You will have your own room in the house, but will have to share kitchen and bathroom with us. it is also possible to sleep in the grillcabin if you like. You may use the sauna when ever you like.
Fishing in a lake or in the sea. Great nature just outside the door! Fantastic hiking posibilities nearby.

Married elderly couple, (61 and 65). Anders is a busdriver and Elena is retired and stays home at the farm. We like gardening, fishing, listening to music, reading, cooking, relaxing in the sauna, spending time in the grillcabin staring into the fire.
We need to get inspired by interesting people giving us new ideas.
Drugs is strictly forbidden and banned! Wine and beer is ok, but remember; such drinks are extremely expensive in this country!
You must be reliable and honest.
