Want to be a permaculture volunteer in Denmark?
We welcome volunteers to join us in learning journeys, observing and engaging with the 28360 m2 (or 7 acres) that we have assumed responsibility and duty of care for. We are no practical experts and cannot teach you highly refined skills: we make it up as we go along, working together with the land – its beings and energies – and of course each other. As researchers, activists and volunteers with experiences across the world, however, we do have many stories to share.
Due to the involvement of animals – despite being plant rich, in practice and in nutrition – unfortunately life with us is not terribly well suited for vegetarians or vegans.
If you want to explore regenerative agroecology and permaculture, get in touch and let’s talk and see if there is a fit.
Vores dør er åben for frivillige, som har lyst til at tage med os på en opdagelsesrejse i de 28360 m2 (eller godt 5 tønder land), som vi har taget ansvar for at passe på. Vi er ikke praktiske eksperter og kan ikke undervise i fine færdigheder, vi lærer bare hen ad vejen, i samarbejde med landskabet, dets levende væsner og energier, og selvfølgelig hinanden. Til gengæld har vi som forskere, aktivister og frivillige rundt om i verden mange historier at fortælle om det ene og det andet.
Fordi dyr er involveret både praktisk og som enæring, og til trods for at livet her hos os er rigt i planter, er det desværre ikke så godt anlagt til vegetarer eller veganer.
Hvis du vil udforske regenerativ jordbrug og permakultur, så skriv og lad os se om vi kan finde ud af noget sammen.

We have interests in anything from astrophysics to zoology, live in the meantime (as opposed to end times or new ages), and inhabit and embody ambiguities and questions more than definitive identities or answers. Hence we made a chat robot do the job here and explain in simple, concise, but well chosen words from mainstream perceptions of permaculture reality. Enjoy:
What is a permaculture volunteer (in Denmark)?
“…A permaculture volunteer is an individual who contributes their time and efforts to projects related to permaculture. Permaculture is a holistic approach to designing and creating sustainable and regenerative systems that mimic natural ecosystems. It involves principles and techniques for designing productive and self-sustaining landscapes, integrating agriculture, architecture, and social systems.
As a permaculture volunteer, you would typically work on projects that aim to implement permaculture principles and practices. This could include activities such as:
- Sustainable farming/gardening: Assisting in the development and maintenance of permaculture gardens or farms, using techniques like companion planting, organic fertilizers, and water management strategies.
- Food forests: Participating in the establishment and management of food forests, which are designed to mimic natural forests and provide a variety of edible and useful plants.
- Water management: Helping with the design and construction of water catchment systems, swales, ponds, and other techniques to effectively manage and conserve water resources on site.
- Soil building: Working on activities such as composting, vermicomposting, and mulching to improve soil fertility and structure.
- Eco-building: Assisting in the construction of sustainable structures using natural and locally available materials, incorporating passive solar design, and implementing energy-efficient systems.
- Community engagement: Engaging with local communities and educating them about permaculture principles, organizing workshops, and promoting sustainable practices.
Permaculture volunteers typically gain hands-on experience, learn sustainable techniques, and contribute to the development of regenerative systems. It is an opportunity to actively participate in environmental conservation, food production, and community building based on permaculture ethics and principles…”
What is the climate like in South-East Jutland?
Southeast Jutland, also known as Syddanmark or Southern Denmark, is located in the southern part of the Jutland Peninsula in Denmark. The region experiences a temperate maritime climate influenced by the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Here’s a description of the climate in Southeast Jutland:
- Temperature: The region has mild summers and relatively mild winters compared to more northern parts of Denmark. Summer temperatures range from 15°C to 25°C (59°F to 77°F), while winter temperatures typically range from 0°C to 5°C (32°F to 41°F). However, temperatures can occasionally drop below freezing in winter, especially during cold snaps.
- Rainfall: Southeast Jutland receives a moderate amount of rainfall throughout the year. The wettest months are generally from July to September, while the driest months are usually April and May. Expect occasional showers and drizzles, but prolonged heavy rainfall is less common.
- Sunshine: The region experiences a moderate amount of sunshine, with longer daylight hours during the summer months. Expect around 6 to 7 hours of sunshine per day on average during the summer, and fewer hours during the winter months.
- Wind: Due to its coastal location, Southeast Jutland can be quite windy, especially near the coastlines. The prevailing winds come from the west and southwest, bringing in maritime influences. Wind speeds are typically moderate, but during stormy weather, gusts can be stronger.
- Snowfall: Snowfall in Southeast Jutland is relatively common during the winter months, although the region typically experiences less snow compared to more northern parts of Denmark. Snow usually falls in December through February, but the amount can vary from year to year.
Overall, Southeast Jutland experiences a mild and relatively stable climate with no extreme temperatures. It is influenced by the nearby seas, which moderate temperature fluctuations and contribute to the region’s maritime characteristics.
