Who thrive in community?
Community life is for you if you are ready to explore, learn, meet new people, take initiatives and discover new sides of your self.
It is for you, if you like to put your hands and skills into the experimental combination of communal life, management and administration, communication and research, community-building, personal development, emerging ecopreneurships and green projects, organic gardening, permaculture design & construction of local renewable heat- and energy systems…

Since we are not so many people yet, we all get to handle tasks and areas, which is unknown to us as well as routine tasks and “dirty” tasks like fixing the sewer system. Our days often take unexpected directions, when something unplanned happens. This means that we get good training on being on the edge of our comfort zone. We have learned that it is important to support each other in not going over the edge.

You are welcome to join the community for a period to explore if this is for you or as a volunteer to give us a hand.

Working groups

Since we have a large common area and all meals are served, everybody is part of at least one working group and dedicate a couple of hours per day to make Avnø Oasis a great place to live.

Volunteers has to dedicate at least 35 hours per week. Half volunteers dedicate at least 25 hours per week.

Social Life and Activities

We eat our meals together.

Sometimes we sing, sit by the fireplace, watch movies together or play games. It’s up to each of us to take initiative to the activities we need to nourish ourselves.

Other times we withdraw to connect with ourselves or nature. It is possible to sit at a quiet table or take your food outside at moments, where you feel the need to just be with yourself.

Most of us enjoy to take part in courses and events organised by Avnø højskole.
