About

Right now we are looking for sincere persons who wants to learn about ecological farming and willing to support our farm in any way needed. We who welcome you here are Åke (former university teacher in computing science, now retired) and Tingting (who comes from China) and the cats Oliver, Cherie and Sesam who are our only animals. Together with the farm Dalhem we grow ecological vegetables, fruits and berries on 15 000 square meters. We also have several green houses. Part of the growing is done by our collegues at Dalhem farm which is just beside us. We pull up all the plants (15000 plants each year), Dalhem grows them and we sell them. We work very closely together. In our house we have a shop where we sell most kind of health food stuff like fruits, veggies, dry food, eggs, tea, goat cheese, supplements etc. We also have a little café in the shop where we serve coffee, tea and healthy cakes and smoothies. In the autumn we sell veggies at the local Farmers Market in Gothenburg every Saturday. And the year around we deliver ecological food and ecoboxes to people in the area around and in Gothenburg. We also arrange courses in ecological farming, health, personal growth and meditation.

We take up to five woofers at a time and we try to arrange a good life for them. And many of them stay long time here. Sometimes Åke gives a talk on some topic like gardening, personal growth or health. Our farm has good connections with bus and train to Gothenburg.

Our company is called Sustainable Health and we are very interested in a sustainable life style and in supporting the planet to change into a sustainable way of living. We mostly eat vegetarian food. We are also very interested in raw food. But you are free to eat the way you are used to. Since we have the shop in our house, most ingredients for cooking are already in the house. Lunch the wwoofers eat together and take turn to cook during work time. Breakfast and dinner you usually prepare yourself. If you have very special diet it is better you connect with us first, because it is not really possible to cook special food for lunch for someone to any larger extent. Breakfast and dinner is another thing.

We live in a big house (not a farm) where we also have the shop and café. In a newly built house the wwoofers live, eat and hang out together. And around is a beautiful garden.

We expect you to work 35 hours a week including cleaning the house. We want wwofers who are genuinely interested in ecological gardening and a healthy life style. The work will mostly be in the ecological garden, where we grow a lot of different leaves. But you are expected to do anything needed for the farm. Maybe there will also be time to pick wild berries and mushrooms for sale in our shop. Or come to the farmer's market and help us sell there. And at times the work will be construction of some kind or other urgent jobs. We have also installed a solar heating system and solar cells for electricity. We want non-smokers in the house. And we expect everybody to follow our general rules about keeping the house neat and clean. We have found that only when everything is in order, everybody can be really satisfied. Otherwise there is always someone suffering.

Åke has long experience of leading courses in organic farming and in healthy living and he is willing to teach you more about organic farming as well as health and healthy living.

Close to our house is Solhälla Course center where several people are living in a community. The center at times arranges courses in yoga, meditation, personal growth etc as well as festivals at times. And a little further away is the Hällmarken community and the Alternative Village, where many people interested in a sustainable life style are living. Sometimes there are special events like concerts, meditations, yoga and the like in the village that you can participate in.

Our house is very close to lake Hällungen where you can go swimming. Close are also beautiful forests. The closest cities are Stenungsund (17 km) and Gothenburg (65 km) There are trains at least every hour.

We prefer sincere people who want to learn and can stay a little longer time like a month or two, but it is not a requirement. For a longer stay we would like to have a test period of two weeks first.

We offer you all food and to a reasonable amount also some snacks and fruits. All of the food is ecological. We expect you to bring working clothes and rain clothes, but we also have some old boots and rain clothes in the house. Gloves we supply. If you have problems bringing sheets, we can provide that.

There is an internet connection in the house that you can use for your computer. And we prefer if you can use mobile or Skype for calling.

Don’t hesitate to ask for more information. We love having wwoofers here and do our best to give you a good time here.
