Wwoofing and helpx is an opportunity for us to get some help with some small projects we have here and meet people. It is a cultural exchange and a learning opportunity. We provide you with food and accommodation and a nice environment in exchange for your help. We hope to positively share some of our way of life here.
Tell us if you have any particular skills or interests and we may be able to accommodate you but most important is a willingness to help and join in.
We have had several wwoofers to stay here during the last couple of years , one has even returned for a second stay. There is an occasional person that does not fit in, or the wwoofing or helpx scheme does not work for them, so we now first have a trial period of up to a week to make sure that it works for everyone and we are never offended if you decide that you prefer to move on.
Wwoofer-accommodation is in a holiday-cottage or room.
Internet is available for e-mailing in the evening.
Wwoofing is based on honesty and trust. You will find personal items lying around and we would hope that you to respect our property as we respect yours.
We have some Canadian canoes,kayaks, and a bike that you can use. There are some nice 1-2 hour walks.
We are a hard working friendly family. We enjoy spirituality, writing, reading, gardening, outdoor activities. Two of our sons( 20 and 23) are studying, one son( 25) is working as a teacher and our daughter ( 27 ) was wwoofing in New-Zealand and Australia and is helping us regular.
This info sheet is not meant to be a set of rules, We have had the odd bad experience in the past, we want to clarify the way we operate here and what
Wwoofing/helpx entails. So we hope you feel part of this place and our family while you are here and have a good time ‘mucking in’.
