About us

We are a couple in our mid-thirties who recently dropped out of the big city treadmill. We moved in 2011 from London to our farm in Hållnäs, with the ambition to create a space for interdisciplinary meetings and creative research close to nature.

Alex Peck has roots in the UK, a well-travelled former science teacher and classroom assistant with  broad experience of working with young people within the autistic spectrum, as well as in outdoor education. Alex is interested in gardening, sustainable development and resilience. twitter.com/alexinyboda
