We welcome highly motivated people with entrepreneurial spirits, who are ready to dedicate their energy and skills to realise our vision

With the intention to co-create a more sustainable lifestyle, Avnø Oasis is a melting pot of people with different cultural backgrounds and skills ranging from ecovillage-design, permaculture, holistic nutrition, personal and spiritual development to entrepreneurship and sociocracy.

With 7 to 11 different nationalities around the table we mostly speak English. 

Our community kitchen serves 3 daily meals prepared using macrobiotic principles. We are not able to provide snacks and special foods. 

All bedrooms have private bathrooms. Once the local plan is in place, residents will have the possibility of upgrading their private space to accommodate their needs within limits of building regulations.

Since we have a large common area and many shared facilities, those of us who live her spend around 2 hours/day + 1 day/month on upkeep of our home.  

As much as possible we try to align our work tasks with our skills and interests, so we can work from inspiration rather than obligation. We aim to find a healthy balance between work, social life and withdrawing to connect with ourselves or nature. It is for example possible to sit at a quiet table or taking your food outside or to your room, when you feel the need to be alone. 

We have many shared Facilities and our car share association, Avnø Carshare, allows us to have shared cars. Once the project is up and running we aim to also share ownership of the property. 

We’re in a nature reserve area, so we strongly recommend taking walks and exploring the surroundings! We also have some bikes available. As a community, we sometimes sing, play games, watch a movie, sit by the fireplace or do other social activities. Other days we take time on our own. In your free time it is often possible to participate in some of Avnø højskole’s activities.


Curious if Avnø Oasis could be a place for you?
