Accomodation & food

One of the bedrooms in the GeoDome will be shared by two interns.  A small family or a couple would also fit comfortably within in the space available.

Food will be included in the internship.  In our family we put a lot of emphasis on:​

  • growing our own food

  • making healthy meals from scratch

  • fermentation like kefir and sourcrouts

  • conservation of food by drying, canning, freezing, making pesto, salsa, herbal teas...

  • sourcing zero waste food

Nourishment

Community living

We are a family of six people.  Two adults and four kids (7-11 years old) that are raised with permaculture ethics at heart and non-violent communication.  Interns will be taking part in the family life, that might include childcare, assisting kids in assembling meals and shared house chores.

 

We also have 7 friendly hens that run freely in our garden and will visit the GeoDome greenhouse regularly.

Many hands make light work

Renovations

The GeoDome is 35 years old and we are doing some renovations to keep it in good shape.

 

It will be possible to take part in renovation work on the GeoDome greenhouse if a intern would have a interest for building.  Sveinbjörn, the father in the family is a master carpenter and will be working on improving the curved greenhouse ceiling and some other retrofitting of the building.​​
