The Self-Sustaining Village is a Danish eco-village situated in the beautiful Southern Funen. We are 30 adults and 40 kids in a community with permaculture/agriculture, animals, eco-building (straw houses), nature, social life, celebrations and much more. We share many things, but also have individual homes and families. If you are curious to know more about community life this is a good place to start. Have a look at our webpage: www.selvforsyning.dk
I 2016 we hosted a work camp and we re ready for another round. The work of the work camp will be smaller restoration and construction projects in the village, combined with work in the fields and other community work.We re planning different tasks, including:- Restoration of our community house, which is a 250 years old protected farm house build in the traditional Danish building style. Eg. Cleaning and painting windows and doors, simple masonry work, other manual work. – Working in our community gardens and fields- Other small construction projects- Helping in the kitchen (1 or 2 volunteers each day)No particular skills required. Working hours will be in the day time.
Sleeping facilities:- Simple accommodation in tents, just beside our community house. We have tents, but you re welcome to bring your own. Be aware that Danish summer can be cold, especially in the nights. – Bring you own rolling matt and a sleeping bag. Last year the participants moved inside to sleep, that is also a possibility, but most of you will then be sharing the same room. The community house is open 24/7 and you are welcome to use it for hanging out.Kitchen bathroom facilities: – There is kitchen and toilets/shower in the community houseWashing:- There is washing machines free to useFood:- Breakfast and lunch will be available but you will have to prepare it yourself- At dinner you will join our communal dinner served for the whole village. One or two of the volunteers are daily expected to help out with cooking the dinner.- We eat meat but there will also be made vegetarian/vegan food for all meals.- All food served is organic and as much as possible is made from our own crops/animals.
The village is located in a beautiful area only 6 km from the sea.- We will arrange some communal trips to the beach- A limited number of bikes will be available to use for personal trips in the local area.- Bon fires at night (bring your instruments).- Song evenings, movies, etc.- Whatever we can come up with.
