About.

Friskoven is a very newly started eco-village on the Danish island Bornholm in the Baltic Sea. We bought the property, which is an old school on 12 hectares of land in the forest, in December 2018. The buildings are in very poor shape and needs heavy renovation. Our wish is to create living spaces for 10 families or more, plus big communal kitchen, workshops, café, concert hall and much more in the buildings. We want to create a village where dreams are possible. A village in the forest, where we grow our own food and take care of each other and the land.

The project is still very young and we don't have much build up yet! We still don't have electricity and have just one tap of cold water! We all live in tents and caravans and cook over fire and simple gas cookers. So expect wild camping conditions!

At this moment of writing, the project is completely new and there is pretty much nothing at the site! We have build a simple compost toilet and are working on kitchen and showers!
Currently we have been cooking over fire and in our campervans, but we are working to make a more functional communal kitchen.
We ourselves live in campers and tents, so come camp with us and help us build up the place!
More information will follow as we get more settled, but for now we invite you to come and dream along with us, to help shape this place that will soon be blossoming!
