Petersholm is an ever-changing community of volunteers from all over the world. We treat each other with respect, contribute with what we can, and cultivate a philosophy of working joyfully. We are generally vegetarians, enjoying very diverse and nutritious meals, and are interested in a wide variety of holistic healing practices.
We strive toward sustainability and organic living, making lots of our own products, including creams from our beeswax, ash soap, natural cleaning products, kefir, kombucha, fervida, apple cider vinegar, candles, kokedamas and other decorations, and more. We are also establishing fruit tree and willow orchards.
We have had volunteers from age 7 to 70, and staying from 1 day to a year and a half. The area is 4 hectares with a Hobbit House, a Tiny House/Biopod, a permaculture plot, and a main house where we host bed and breakfast guests. We have chickens, 2 lovely cats, worm farms, beehives, and a diversity of wildlife.
