About Me

Located in Northern Dalarna near the small town of Orsa. With a population arround 400 Skattungbyn has a long history of selfsufficiency and independence, today it is a functioning regular village with a high population of eco-minded, creative, spiritual people of different ages. A course in organic gardening, self-sufficiency and communal living has been active since the 70's and has influenced the village to a very high degree, it is still active today and has expanded to include more courses around permaculture and eco-building. The course brings many young, enthusiastic and creative people to the village every year.


There is a rich cultural life with many well organized parties, concerts, jams, and spontaneuos events.
