How could we make the Healing Garden on Fejø grow, if it were not for wwoof´ers from all around the world who help us.

In May Lou from England came along and stayed for a nice long period.

There was a lot of sowing and potting and repotting in that period, hundreds of pots went through Lou´s hands.

Then Frech and fluteplaying Simon came on his bicycle. And Danish Kristoffer came with his tent in which he just loved to sleep, no matter how much it rained. Because we had a lot of sunshine, but certainly also a lot of rain, which we always welcome, because no water is the same as no plants and no abundance.

From America Evan and Theo arrived.

Ivone from Mexico came, we felled lots and lots of willow in order to be able to build the bench around the gingko beloba tree.

July came along and so did Jenny from England – understanding Danish and even speaking a little.

Through out the year Michael from USA has been helping us with the website.

His professional website is Michael Sambar and you can se a pic of him there – and loads of the stuff he designes, he is really good.

Thanks to all of you lovely woof´ers, not only for the practical help but also for lots of fun and inspiration, singing and dancing.
