Near Hagfors in Värmland is Sunnemo eco-village. This oasis of self-reliance and living in nature is not only a place to go to recharge ones batteries, but many Europeans have also found their way here because they have fled north, away from the strict Corona restrictions imposed by many countries.
However, being involved in organic farming does not mean that politically correct dogmas are welcome, says the eco-village’s founder Johan Erle. He explains: “Just because you live in an eco-village, people here are not climate alarmists or Greta Thunberg fans.”
Sunnemo eco-village consists of 67 hectares of land, of which 33 hectares are open fields and 34 hectares of forest. The goal of the land is eco-construction for people to settle in and to create efficient cultivation of various crops. On some of the land, they have experimented with quinoa, industrial hemp and buckwheat.
The interest in all forms of horticulture, and then also the interest in acquiring their own vegetable plots to grow at least some of their own food, is a trend that has increased a lot in recent times.
The Corona crisis has made many people worry about the problems that could arise if these restrictions continue. And people from other parts of Europe have also started to move to Sweden and into the collective housing in Sunnemo ecovillage.
Country after country in Europe and practically the whole world have introduced more or less strict restrictions, sometimes so draconian that normal life becomes virtually impossible.
At the UN General Assembly meeting on December 4, World Food Program Director David Beasley warned that 270 million people were “on the verge of starvation” and that “2021 will be literally catastrophic” due to disruptions in food production and distribution. Although one is unlikely to starve in Sweden in the first place, stores have already begun to raise the prices of a number of groceries.
