Oma maa (Our Land) food cooperative in Finland is warmly welcoming interested practitioners to come work, learn and stay along with us during the upcoming season! 

We produce year-round food bags for our members on the two farms in our cooperative some 30kms outside of Helsinki, whilst we take care of our land and our animals (three Lapland cows as well as chickens), and work in our food forest, greenhouse, gardens and kitchen and, whenever we can, farm-dine together in our little membership/restaurant space in town. 

We believe the challenging Taiga environment of Finland offers a thought and practice provoking setting for international exchange around agriculture, in which agriculture addresses our food system, but also the fulfilling of other basic needs Welcome to experience the next season with us! 

There are two ways in which you would be welcome to come stay with us :

Welcome to our Agricultural Camp during 19 – 30 April! Thanks to a grant received from FundAction, we are able to fund the travel and costs of a few people. Read more on the camp.

 And/or

Welcome to come to stay with us for a longer time throughout Spring/Summer/Fall 2022! To support your stay we can be offering modest but sweet accommodation on the farm, including breakfast and meals during weekdays. Of course we will also assist you in any other way possible to make your stay with us as good as possible.    

 Read more about us and the things we do in this comprehensive text on Oma maa’s process around Good Agriculture,  and from our website www.omamaa.fi. Everyone interested is most welcome to get in touch with us and ask any questions you might have! Please write to jasenet@omamaa.fi.
