5th Day In Norway ( Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility project ):

 

“Today was an early start for me as I had to be at the farm for 6.30am to milk the cows which took about an hour. I also had to give them fresh food. When I had finished 5 of the cows and feeding them all I went back to Morgan House and had some breakfast, we went to the morning meeting, after the morning meeting we went back down the cows and gave them some fresh bedding and cleaned the cow pat from the stands where the cows stand. After we had done this we went down to the field where we were knocking the fence down and cut some branches and put them on the trailer.”

 

Shelby Taylor, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

 

 

 

 

“Yet again another amazing day in Solborg started as usual sitting at the table sharing breakfast with the people in Morgan House. This for me is very important because it is something I never do at home. Then work started, we went down the farm and cleaned out the cow shed, once clean we fed the cows. Then we headed down to the field where we took the fences down. Trees had been cut down to clean up the field boundary. We then persisted in sorting out the wood into 2 piles. One for burning in the village houses, one for the compost pile. I think we sorted 5 trailers full of wood. We worked hard and very efficient, it was really nice when we sat down for diner and there was wood on the fire. It was rewarding thinking there will be a fire keeping people warm thanks to the work we did today.”

 

Owen Reece, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

 

 

 

 

“Today we have breakfast at 7.45am in the Morgan House and we left the house at 9.00 to meet the villagers for half an hour and we went to the cows’ house, we cleaned the cows’ houses.”

Testimonies from our Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainees in Norway about the Fourth day of their project:

 

“Today we started by having breakfast at 7.45am in Morgan House. After this we went down to the field and finished taking down the fence, when we had finished taking down the fence we went up to the forest workshop and chopped some wood. Then one of the volunteers who works on the farm came down with the tractor and trailer and we put most of the logs into the trailer, when we had finished work we had a nice friendly game of football with the villagers.”

Shelby Taylor, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

 

 

 

 

“Today was another amazing day, we started off as usual by having breakfast with the people of Morgan House. I really enjoy sitting down as part of a family.
The work started same as the day before, we finished taking down the fences and then we worked on the farm, chopping some wood in the forest. Once that was finished we helped with the animals, cleaning out the cows and feeding them, as well as the sheep and chickens. Once work was finished we had a nice friendly game of football although I don’t really care for the game it was a great chance to bond and have a good time with the villagers and care workers.”

Owen Reece, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

 

 

“Today we are doing eating breakfast with the people of Morgan House and we are going to work the same place we worked yesterday, we had a break at 10.30 for half an hour and then we have been chopping wood. We had lunch at 12.00pm and we went back at 2.00pm in the cows’ house. We were feeding the cows and gave them grass. After that we finished at 5.00pm and we had diner at 5.30pm with the people of Morgan House, at 7.00pm we played football with the people in the village.”

Testimony from our Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainees about their third day in Norway:

 

 

“The 3 days that I have been staying on Camphill have been great. I have really enjoyed meeting the people who live and work here. Today we worked on the farm taking down an old rotten fence to get it redone for the cows to graze in.  I really enjoyed doing this because I like doing manual work as I am used to doing it because I’m working with animals at college. Today I also had lunch with one of the other families.”

Shelby Taylor, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

“Our third day in Camphill has been great. I really enjoyed socializing with the people who live on the site. But I thought it was even better starting work and showing I am an asset to Camphill. Today we worked on the farm and started pulling down an old fence so it can be replaced, then the cows are able to graze the field. I was really happy to get stuck in and work hard. I already know I am going to learn and gain so much from this training experience. The least I can do in return is make sure I work well. I will take things from this to better my own life. So I would be happy to contribute and help people in their lives.“

Owen Reece, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

 

 

“I had a good day today, I did work in the farm where we worked hard. In the morning we worked for 3 hours and we had a half an hour break. After, we went back and worked the same place in the farm. I had lunch in the farm house, we met with the farm people, they are so nice.”

Here are the testimonies from our 3 trainees about the second day of their Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility project in Norway:

 

 

“My opinion of Norway is great. Today we asked Adnan questions about Solborg, the work we will be doing and what hours of work we will be doing. Today we also went bowling in Honefoss with the rest of the volunteers and people that live and work in Solborg. I really enjoyed bowling because I got to meet more of the community of Solborg as the people are really nice and polite.”

Shelby Taylor, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

 

 

“My over all opinion of Norway is still amazing! Today we asked questions to Adnan about the type of work we are able to do on the farm, such as what time do we start, are we on the farm or are we doing something else. Afterwards we took a drive into Honefosss and enjoyed a nice game of bowling with the full time volunteers and the people who live on Camphill. It was a great opportunity to talk to the people who live here, and plus to introduce ourselves to the ones who we haven’t met yet. I can’t wait to get busy and show I am a reliable and hard working person.”

Owen Reece, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

 

 

“I am happy to be here in Norway, today I had a great time when I had breakfast. We went to the farm house, took pictures with the cow and we went to bowling with my mates and the farm, we played bowling, I had nice time.”

Testimony from our trainees about the first day of their Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility project in Norway:

 
 “I have really enjoyed it so far, the hiking was great but exhausting, I’ve never done anything like this before so it’s going to be a great experience for me and it will look great on my CV.”

Shelby Taylor, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

 

 

“I have nice time when I come to Norway I meet so nice people. I really enjoyed seeing the farm. The farm is so good, I like to work with them I am so happy.”

Samiy Fesahya, Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility trainee.

 

 

“My opinion so far about Norway is excellent, we got introduced to the people who live and work on the farm and everyone was really polite and welcoming. Today we went on a 10 miles hike or thereabouts, it was exhausting but I really enjoyed it. The walk was amazing and the views were fantastic. I’ve never before seen or experienced anything quite like this. I am really looking forward to starting work on Monday and getting busy, I want to show and prove to the people on the farm I can work hard.”

“Hello, my name is Chris, I’m 18 and I came from Mirfield. I did a Leonardo Da Vinci Mobility project in Norway (2weeks). In Norway I did a lot of work: I milk cow, chopped wood, made bread, cleaned cow sheds. I liked milking cows and cleaning cow sheds  and having a fight with the poo.

There was nothing to do at night, so we had to make our own entertainment, like playing Uno, card games.

We have days off like the weekends, so went bowling, mounting climbing, bike rides.It was a lot of fun.

I wish I can go back out there and have fun in the farm again. I miss working out there and the people I met.

Norway was a lot of fun reccomended to other people.

Now I am back I have a job at a community center because of this experience.”
