lindeborgs gård

Like some might have read I work as a gardener on a organic farm a bit outside of Nyköping.
2013 I finished my "bachelor of science" in organic agriculture in Eberswalde/ Germany and moved in march 2014 to Sweden. I started first as "wwoofer" at Lindeborgs Gård and then continued working there as employe. 
I was really so lucky, it is real lurxury to be able to work in the job I learned and love so much.
Over the last years the farm changed more and more. We expanded the veggie gardens, planted and seeded and also a new idea started to become more clear.
The owners of Lindeborgs Gård, Carl and Julia want to change the old barn into a unique green inspiration center, organic farm and retreat. Already last winter we started to make a information book about the farm and the future project.

I made the illustrations for the book, Carl and Julia wrote all the texts and my partner Victor made the layout plus grafic design

Each guest staying on the farm gets a book.

A few weeks ago the project finally started. Half of the original barn building from 1907 will be carefully renovated with all eco friendly materials. New modern design meets traditional in respect for the old barn building. Here are some impressions of the current state.
My goal 2017 is to share more everyday and work impressions on the blog. Hope I will manage it ;-)

A picture of the barn. The old pig stall got taken down.

Luckily the weather wasn't that bad so far, so building and working outside was no problem

The future floor, filled with eco friendly isolation and a sneek of the view down to the lake.

My favourite part is the beautiful framework of the barn. A lot will stay. Here will be some of the future guest rooms.
I love these colours and textures of the old wooden walls and doors. Some parts will be reused others restored with wood of the farms forest.

The Eco Barn is designed by award winning  White Architects of Sweden. For me it is so impressing and exicting to be part of this project. To see the barn change more and more into the vision of the future Eco Barn is great.

My work for the coming weeks will be seed orders and planing a design for the future garden. This spring will be a lot to do and by the beginning of july will the Eco Barn be open for the first guest to stay there.

There will be
2 superior rooms of 32 & 35 square meters, self-catering with kitchen, bathroom and log fire, available for up to four people.
1 bed & breakfast room that sleeps two people.
All  guests will also have access to;
- a sauna with large windows overlooking the lake
- massage treatments
- yoga classes
-  'Eat what nature has to offer' - tour.
- Horse back riding
- Canoe

There are still rosehips left. We planted 2 years ago a hedge close to the barn to protect and create a cozy enviroment in the future garden.
