About the local hosting organizationFärnebo folkhögskola has a profile in transition. Right now a course is building a new greenhouse and are setting setting up a framework by which all in the village could reduce their footprint and improve their self sufficiency.
About the volunteer workParticipants in the camp will be involved with constructing a chicken house and taking care of daily chores in the vegetable garden. We will also do study visits to learn about working with bees and goats. Participants will also be introduced to permaculture and be given the opportunity to develop ideas for further development of the school´s minifarm. Students of the 'Transition-pilots' course will guide volunteers in the different task involving the transition to a more sustainable way of living. Some locals and refugees living in the receptions centre nearby may want to practice their English, be ready to be a bit of a teacher!
