Vallersund Gård Norway

Since it was not raining yet, my mom decided to go straight to Vallersund Gård after doing our groceries. Vallersund Gård or Vallersund Farm is situated in Bjugn Kommune. It is a small Camphill village that takes care of the people who have special needs. 


There is a Fram-school here where young adults with learning disabilities can learn new skills. They teach gardening, organic farming, and other sheltered workshops that will help and develop people with special needs.



Sayang lang because it is not yet summer time so hindi pa namin nakita na may mga tanim yung farm. This place has its own store where they sell organic and environment-friendly products and their own products from their workshops. They offer almost all the basic things that people need in their everyday life so they do not need to go to the groceries. Unfortunately, we haven’t visited the shops during our trip.




Vallersund Gård is part of the national protection plan for historical buildings and is considered an Eco-village because 


1. They have a large windmill that covers their energy needs. 



2. They use a heat pump which extracts energy from the sea to warm the houses. 


3. They have a biological purifying plant that treats wastewater before it goes back to the sea. 

This is the sea lion made by artist Astrid Dahisveen.

  1. Nakakainggit ang ibang bansa no, parang ung government nila is very helpful to the needy. Sadly, because of corruption, parang di natin ma feel ang tulong dito sa PH. Nakakatuwa lang isipin. Buti pa sa Norway. At may crowd ba jan? haha. Parang halos lahat ng pics very peaceful ang scenery. Sarap magmuni muni jan! lol.
