Who are we?
We are an English-Danish couple, 63 and 64.  We have been living in England for 9 years, but want to move to Sweden and find a place to put down roots and see things grow.  Anthony has worked on farms and built his own smallholding, can work with horses and farm animals and make things in metal; he has a business making and selling historical jewellery (www.runesmith.co.uk) which has been making money successfully in Denmark and Sweden.  Linda is a former nursery school teacher and literature graduate now on an invalidity pension, interested in gardening.  We both have experience of living in close sharing groups and want to live the rest of our lives in a collective.  We now have another contact, Gunilla, 59, who has run an organic farm and knows a lot about growing food.

Who do we want?
People to help us start a country collective in Southern Sweden.  Age, sex, religion and politics are not as important as being able to get on with others, work together and solve problems without heat,
and who respect other people, and nature. We are looking for people who, all going well, will want to stay for life, though some passing through would be OK to help us get started.  We are aiming for a group of 6-8 people altogether.

We do not have enough money for a place big enough for a collective (we used to, but house prices have dropped in the UK and risen in Sweden,) so some of you will have to be able to put up a share (with proper legal structures so your money is still yours.)  People with no money for the house are also welcome, but everyone would need to have some kind of income you can live on, either a business you can carry on, royalties from books, a pension or whatever.  Sharing and farming can reduce your expenses, but, as we know, not to zero.

We need to move very soon, for Linda's health and because the UK economy could go down any time, so we are looking for people ready to jump.

What do we want?
We imagine a place where people have their own private space, not just a bedroom but a few rooms of their own, plus shared spaces for rest, play and work. We wish for enough land to grow food, at least a good big garden but more would be nice.

We need to be in nature, a good long way from the polluted air of towns and motorways.  We want to raise our own food as much as possible, for health and economy, and because we want animals around us; we can negotiate whether it is OK to keep them for meat, or just for milk and eggs.

Everyone would put in money for shared costs – house, energy, taxes, maybe food – but have their own money as well.  We would like to share meals if possible.  We are almost vegetarian, could go altogether veggie if need be, but we can also get along with meat eaters if they are strict about how it was raised.  We must have at least one car for Anthony's business, it could be shared if it was agreed that the business has first call on it.  We have family who would want to visit, so we would like to plan it so everyone can have visitors for overnight, for holidays etc.

Please write to us at kail@runesmith.co.uk  or call on +44 1484 842971.  If you have a (landline) phone number we can call, please let us know, we have a free phone call deal so we can talk for as long as you like whatever country you are in.  We visit Sweden often, so if you make contact we can arrange to meet.

* Om tidningen Åter

- Att jag läst samtliga gamla nummer som fanns att få tag på för utlåning av denna tidning säger väl en hel del om vad jag tycker om den. En del av dem har jag lånat flera gånger. Jag älskar tidningen! Den är idérik, hoppingivande, livsbejakande, inspirerande och informativ och får mig att sjuda av iver och verksamhetslust. Jag kommer att köpa gamla nummer några i taget och nu är det verkligen dags att starta en prenumeration!
