Vitsoehus is situated in one of the most beautiful sceneries of the world, next to the nature preserve “Vitsø Nor" and Vitsø (originally: hvid sø = white lake). It had been re-claimed from the sea in 1788 and drained first by a Dutch windmill “Vitsø Mølle”, from 1964 onward with electrical pumps for gaining farmland. Since the 22.01.2010 the lake has been re-established. Today this area is a paradise for a wide range of birds and plants. The whole island is covered with cycle-routes, peaceful sceneries invite to recreative walks nearly everywhere. It offers versatile options of enjoying nature, exercise and motion.
We, Morten and Petra have been working in diverse projects in the realm of education, creation and sustainability in Germany for many years, learned by Sepp Holzer's ideas in Austria, started to attend permaculture and fell in love with Ærø.
Working with us means exploring nature every new day, being pioneer, learner and teacher with heart and soul - and of course with drive and sense.
We are having space in a caravan (convenient space for tents is also available) for 1 to 2 persons who like to enjoy Vitsøhus Permaculture and the pure country life. We speak English, Danish and German.
Main subjects are: organic and forest gardening, sustainability, resource-conserving living, aiming self-sufficiency and independency, harvesting crops also for own use in the Café/Restaurant. Preparing meals, attending the shop for garden equipment, observing, inventing, creating and building elements for use and recreation on the grounds are essential activities. Besides 1 Irish Setters, 1 Siamese cats we have old archaic races like Frisian chicken, Spelsau sheep and Alpaca's partly on another old farmland (5 ha) nearby.
